Course Description

Educators are beginning to build new competency-based learning models in which students are actively driving their learning while mastering the habits and skills necessary to fulfill their dreams. The purpose of this course, developed using information from the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, is to explore ideas that state policy needs to address in the long-term to support a transformation to competency-based education systems designed to ensure equity for all students. Strategies to build a system on the core principle that all students can succeed and be ready for the next step in their learning, the workforce, and life are presented along with current ways that states are beginning to shift to competency-based education. Additionally, action steps to be taken when working toward a long-term vision of competency-based learning are discussed.
