Getting Started on Personalized Competency-Based Systems Workshop

Albany, New York | October 23–24, 2019

Join us for a two-day workshop outlining the basics of personalized learning within a competency-based system.

Understand the key differences between time-based and performance-based systems of learning, and discover the benefits of allowing students to move through levels of content at their appropriate pace. Bring a team, and learn together how to address the following key design questions:

  • What content will be addressed within the system?
  • How will the learning environment support student agency?
  • How will instruction support student learning?
  • How will student proficiency be measured?
  • How will scheduling accommodate student learning?
  • How will reporting facilitate student learning?
  • How do we transition to a personalized, competency-based system?

Learn the basics of personalized competency-based education and explore examples of schools and classrooms that have implemented these types of systems.
