Most technical and trade programs are still organized around a teaching model that is hundreds of years old: lecture and lab. Mastery is shown through paper tests. Competency based instruction is designed around students demonstrating competency on specific objectives in the lab. This session will highlight advantages and challenges in the competency based model and offer planning guidance for developing a competency based curriculum.
