About the Webconference

MOOCs are a thing of the past, and many parties within and outside of higher education (media, government entities, foundations) have turned their attention to competency-based education (CBE). As with MOOCs, the hope is that CBE will lower costs, increase access, and improve outcomes—and the fear is that those who don't adopt it will lose relevance and market share if new programs scale quickly.

Feeling beset by "disruption" fatigue—but fearful of dismissing a model with the potential to spur gains in enrollment and student success—higher education leaders are struggling with how fast and how far their institutions should venture into CBE.

Based on interviews with over 100 experts and practitioners, this presentation aims to separate the hype from what's really working. We examine CBE's primary objectives, the most prevalent myths in the field, and which factors are likely to accelerate CBE's competitive threat to current higher education programs.

Presenter: Peter Cellier
