The Promise of Competency-Based Credentials

The Promise of Competency-Based Credentials | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it

In theory if you had a few credible competency-based programs out there, then differnt approaches to teaching could compete on the basis of being effective at imparting competency to students. In practice, I think it's all very challenging and there are good odds that USNH's initiative won't amount to much. But it's great to see someone trying and getting encouragement from the Department of Education.
