Competency-Based Education: Teaching in the 21st Century (Workshop Full)

Competency-based education is more than just a buzz phrase. Join us as we explore the core components of competency-based education, including developing an outcomes-based framework, describing the progression of learning, and creating tailored learning experiences and assessments. You will learn about the potential challenges to implementation and leave with strategies to successfully employ competency-based education in your program.

Change can be difficult, especially large-scale curricular change, and we want to set you up for success. Understanding the full scope of your program’s curriculum (i.e., pre-clinical through clinical) is important in the development of a competency-based model.  Therefore, it may be useful to have two representatives from each program attend the workshop with representation from the following areas: pre-clinical, clinical, curriculum development, assessment, or program leadership.

Early Bird registration: $675 members / $725 non-members
Regular registration: $775 members / $825 non-members

Facilitators: Mary Jo Bondy, Rachel Ditoro, Karen Hills

CME hours: 13.25
