Communicating Research Findings: Making the Case for Competency-Based Education
Postsecondary competency-based education (CBE) is receiving considerable attention from advocates, colleges, and policymakers as a way to help more students complete high-quality postsecondary credentials in less time and at a lower cost—but we are just beginning to build rigorous evidence to understand whether CBE programs are fulfilling those value propositions.
The Making the Case for Competency-Based Education webinar series, produced by AIR in partnership with the Competency-Based Education Network and with the generous support of the Lumina Foundation, is designed to support you in using data to demonstrate the value of CBE programs for students, campus leaders, policymakers, and other stakeholders.
This webinar, Communicating Research Findings, explores ways in which you can effectively communicate evaluation findings and data to build support—or, make the case—for CBE.
