CBExchange 2017 News

I’m excited and it’s because I’m at CBExchange! I have a series of posts on the conference at tag CBExchange 2017.

There are so many colleges and universities represented here who are getting into competency-based education. My personal experience with it through Western Governors University showed me the opportunity it creates for helping learners succeed, save money, and progress quickly.

I’m here with Nurolearning and would enjoy talking to you about their solution for CBE programs that helps with pacing, tracking, mentoring, and predictive analytics.

If you’re at CBExchange, message me through the app and I’ll try to meet with you. If you couldn’t make it and still want to discuss CBE, please send me an email.

I’ll update as I can with any news of note on HigherLearningChallenge.com. There’s already buzz around the Quality Principles and Standards for CBE by Bushway et al. (2017).
