Workshop Description:

Competency-Based Education
Jeff Hopkins

Much has been said recently in BC and beyond about a shift from merely measuring content and output to measuring competencies in education. What are these competencies? How are they taught and measured? How could structures in our school system change to better support competency-based learning? This workshop will take you on a tour of the competencies being considered by the BC Ministry of Education and other jurisdictions in the world and will provide a structure for discussion on the “how” of competency- based learning.
