The Potential of Competency-Based Education
Competency-based education models reward students for skills acquired rather than time spent in a seat. Combined with new technology to deliver and assess learning, and a focus on outputs at all levels, CBE is a promising strategy to break the 'iron triangle' and expand access, affordability, and quality for more students.
Building on Success
Participating Incubator teams join a larger community of innovators that includes the NGLC Wave IIIb grantees, the Incubator's first cohort, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Breakthrough Delivery Models grantees, all of whom are designing and implementing new, technology-enabled learning and business models in higher education.
