Competency Based Learning @MSU

Competency based learning (CBE) at its origin awards academic credit based on mastery of clearly defined competencies. Defined competencies derived from the skills proven to be the most relevant by national standards that are recognized by employers and educators.  This stands in direct contrast to education in which learning is structured around seat time and credit hour.  So what happens when you take a varied approach to CBE and create a model that focuses on mastery of learning in a credit hour structure?


Join us for an in-depth discussion on two very distinct competency based programs @MSU:  Fisheries and Wildlife Undergraduate Sustainability Specialization and the fully online Masters in Public Health Program.  The presenters will share their experiences on how, what and why they decided to develop a competency based program as well as highlight the successes/failures in their program building.
