Recent studies have shown that setting up a Competency-Based Education (EDU) model in a classroom enhances learning and allows students to progress at their own pace to gain mastery of the material. In addition, the US Department of Education has this past year allowed various pilot programs to test CBE with Title IV funded students. This session will focus on the factors and details of how to set up a CBE approach in a classroom.
