Personalized Competency Based Education Institute

Schaumburg, Illinois | October 8–10, 2019

When students are promoted based on their mastery of content rather than their age, time becomes variable and learning stays constant. Personalized competency-based education (PCBE) is a comprehensive approach to this exact system.

In PCBE, students learn content at their own pace. They have multiple opportunities both to learn and demonstrate their mastery of content. Assessments are varied and flexible, and grading seeks to accurately represent a student’s current level of achievement. Perhaps most critically, PCBE promotes the development of student agency and gives students both voice and choice in the teaching and learning process.

Join us at the Personalized Competency-Based Education Institute to learn how to implement a competency-based approach in your classroom, school, or district. Our experts will guide you and your team as you consider how this transition will positively impact your students, systems, schedules, and stakeholders.

  • Learn how to determine what content to address.
  • Discover how to create learning environments that support student agency.
  • Explore how competency-based instruction can support student learning.
  • Acquire techniques and tools to measure student proficiency.
  • Understand how scheduling can accommodate student learning.
  • Investigate grading and reporting systems that facilitate student learning.
  • Envision how schools and districts can transition to competency-based systems.
