How To Tackle Competency Based Education in 5 Easy Steps | Edudemic

How To Tackle Competency Based Education in 5 Easy Steps | Edudemic | English Language Teaching | Scoop.it

Competency based education (or competency based learning) is one of those buzzwords that I hear thrown around often in the education world, but I talk to a lot of people who don’t really grasp the concept well and have no clue how they’d go about implementing it in their classroom.

 

I’d even say that some folks I talk to are already doing it to some degree but haven’t necessarily associated the label with what they’re doing in their classroom. We’ve looked at competency based learning before, and yesterday, we looked at some of the benefits it offers, but Mia MacMeekin puts it together in 5 easy steps in the handy infographic below.

 

Keep reading to learn more.

Kyle Kohn's curator insight, May 7, 2014 9:24 PM
Career in Education is one of the rare opportunities that may never get outdated. The demand for qualified and talented teachers will persist as long as there is a desire to learn. It's a learning where knowledge, skills, and habits of individuals are handed over from one generation to another through teaching, training and research. Individuals should research innovative ways of teaching to bring about improvement in today's education system.
