Webinar Announcement: How to Explore, Organize and Achieve Success in a Competency-Based Model
The National Institute for Student-Centered Education’s Engaging Today’s Student Webinar Series has a goal of promoting strategies and methods for more effectively reaching and engaging today’s student. As part of this series, NCC’s Regional Innovations in Learning team members, Anushka Paul and Emily Rukobo will be presenting a webinar titled, ‘How to Explore, Organize and Achieve Success in a Competency-Based Model’ on August 19, 2014 from 3:00pm – 4:00pm.
For those who are completely new to the conversation around competency-based education, this webinar will offer practical suggestions on how you can start to think about this in your classroom and within your schools, as well as how you can build a common understanding of the theory behind this work. For those of you who are more familiar with the concept, we encourage you to join the webinar to share your experiences with competency-based instruction and learn more about a Personalized Learning Lesson Plan Template that you can begin to incorporate into your instruction. During the webinar, all participants will have many opportunities to work both individually and in teams while utilizing some of the resources presented during the session. You will walk away with tools and resources that you can immediately start implementing into your classrooms as well as the opportunity to sign up for a free six month professional development course to further develop competency-based components and personalized lesson plans.
