Bridges to the Future: Converting Existing Continuing and Professional Education Programs to CBE

When: Thursday, October 20, 2022 | 8:30a.m.-9:00a.m. ET
Where: Amelia Ballroom 1
As the value and viability of competency-based education gains increasing traction in higher education, institutions – especially those with Continuing and Professional Education programs – have begun the process of examining their current pedagogical practices and evaluating the roadmap from their current model to CBE/adaptive learning approaches. Unicon recently partnered with C-BEN to assist a globally recognized school of continuing studies in analyzing not only their programs but their technology solutions and practices to create a comprehensive set of recommendations to evolve their current programs. We’ll share the methodologies we used, the outcomes, and the key considerations you should bear in mind as your institution considers the adoption of CBE

Presenter:

Cary Brown - Director of Strategic Project Management, Unicon, Inc.


Personalized Learning Journeys

When: Thursday, October 20, 2022 | 2:25p.m.-2:55p.m. ET
Where: Amelia Ballroom 1
This session explores what a personalized learning journey means and why these experiences are important within the Competency-Based Education (CBE) framework. It will then delve into how Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs, Vygotsky’s ZPD, equity, learning experience design, cultural responsiveness, and social-emotional components all tie in together to give students a voice, a choice, and the empowerment to succeed within their unique cultural backgrounds.
Unicon holds a strategic place in this conversation, as we have been servicing clients within the CBE framework for over 20 years.
