Competence is More Than the Sum of the Competencies    May 29, 2015

The organization, delivery and experience of higher education are rapidly changing through the widespread adoption of competency-based education (CBE). However, CBE maybe robbing the public of what we value most in professionals and the truly learned: the integrative overview and holistic perspective that are the primary hallmarks of professionalism. Myopic emphasis on exhaustive lists of competencies can focus learner attention on minutia and misuse valuable teacher/ mentor time to complete checklists. In this session, we will present the strengths and limitations of CBE in higher education, examine the challenges that session participants are currently experiencing, and provide strategies for scholars, instructors and administrators that will help them minimize the limitations of CBE to ensure a more robust curriculum and a higher-caliber graduate.
