Competency-Based Degree Programs and Online Education

While the higher education world has been focusing on Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and their impact on higher education, interest in competency-based learning continues to build. No longer confined to the province of a few institutions such as Western Governors University and more recently the University of Southern New Hampshire, competency-based degree programs are in the planning stages at the institutional and state levels across the nation. The purpose of this webinar is to examine how online competency-based degree programs are beginning to impact traditional online programs and to share strategies for preparing for these impacts.
