Building Blocks of Competency Based Learning
The EDUCAUSE “Next Generation Digital Learning Environment” paper (Brown, Dehoney, & Millichap) and the IMS / C-BEN work on CBE and credentialing standards outlined a transformational vision for institutions to consider. In this session, we propose important implementation elements that will enable this transition, including: credentialing, extended transcripts (ePortfolios too), backward design, authentic assessment, learning analytics, employability and standards-based learner records. In this presentation, we build on both the NGDLE framework and the IMS / C-BEN work on CBE and credentialing standards to offer additional details & guidance for institutions moving beyond the status quo.
