Education Systems Center at NIU invites you to view a recording of Shifts Happen: Covid-19 “Disruptions” Can Offer New Opportunities for Moving Toward Personalization and Competency-Based Approaches. Designed for education policymakers and practitioners, this webinar explores the opportunities remote learning provides to shift from traditional teaching and learning to more systemic personalized and competency-based approaches. Led by national experts, this session offers a framework with entry points and next steps for pivoting to personalized instructional systems that meet students “where they are” and support them in moving forward as they are ready. Participants examine the challenges they have addressed implementing remote learning and consider how shifting to personalized, competency-based approaches can provide a useful framework for the next school year and beyond.
Presenters: National experts in personalized and competency-based approaches Rose Colby, Karin Hess, and Daniel Joseph are the authors of the new book Deeper Competency-Based Learning: Making Equitable, Student-Centered, Sustainable Shifts. Also, hear from Illinois districts at the leading edge of implementing competency-based approaches through the state’s competency-based pilot.
