CBExchange 2016

It’s going to be another exciting year at the CBE exchange. One of our speakers this year will be Ted Mitchell, The Under Secretary of Education. Last year’s CBExchange was very successful from a participant’s standpoint. I had the opportunity to meet with several individuals from across the United States who were in various stages of developing competency-based programs. We had many rich and informative discussions about competency-based education, higher education, and the Department of Education. It was enlightening to see so many new faces to the C-BEN scene and meet those who I have corresponded with through our ListServ.

This year, I’m really excited to hear some of the updates from last year regarding financial models, workforce responsiveness, and, of course, where we are with the technology to meet our CBE needs. I know that many of you have expressed excitement about all the technology and vendors stepping up to the plate. You are starting to think about how to, at least, start working with the CBE modality. Let’s hope we see more of that enthusiasm in the coming months as we approach an even bigger and more robust CBExchange 2016.

Don’t forget the Breakfast Roundtable Events either, including my roundtable on my most recent research on the development process of CBE. There will be many individuals presenting on a variety of topics at the CBE Breakfast Roundtable Events. They are there for you to learn more about the development of CBE , ask questions, and discuss your current CBE programs while you drink your morning cup of Joe.

Cheers! Dr. Jennifer Cunningham Listen more about my experience at last year's CBExchange in this week's Podcast.

With technology, I am curious where it is going in terms of assessment. Are there software out there already looking at tracking students learning via their learning process as part of the assessment? e.g. instead of the traditioanl "exams", are there ways to assess a student's learning and knowledge captured WHILE they are learning?  In other words, will the future lead toward elimination of "test-banks"?
