Pop Up Problems of Practice in Competency Ed


Join the co-founders of CompetencyWorks and a super-dooper experienced leader in competency-based education for rapid-fire discussions on problems of practice (or policy). Between us, we’ve visited over one hundred schools and districts that have embraced competency-based education. Everyone can be a participant in this session. We'll start by one of us challenging the other two with a problem of practice. Each speaker gets 2 minutes to unpack the problem and offer a solution. Then all of you in the room can pop up with your perspective and solution. You can challenge also -- so bring your problems on. We'll have a buzzer -- so no one speaks more than 2 minutes at a time!
