iNACOL Webinar | 6/19: Levers and Logic Models: A Framework to Guide Research and Design of High-Quality K-12 Competency-Based Education Systems

LEADERSHIP WEBINAR 

Levers and Logic Models: A Framework to Guide Research and Design of High-Quality K-12 Competency-Based Education Systems

Tuesday, June 19, 2018
2-3 p.m. EDT (register)

On Tuesday, June 19, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT, iNACOL (@nacol) will host a webinar to explore details of a recent report offering a logic model for high-quality competency-based education.

Competency-based education is gaining momentum and visibility nationally. To advance the field with quality and fidelity, CompetencyWorks developed a logic model in a new report titled, Levers and Logic Models: A Framework to Guide Research and Design of High-Quality Competency-Based Education Systems, which defines key elements and levers of high-quality competency-based systems to accelerate research and advance the implementation of high-quality models.

The logic model draws upon multiple bodies of research literature and input from local and national voices working in the field of competency education. The paper bridges the research and practice divide, giving researchers and practitioners a common language and framework to connect what teachers and education leaders do with the most latest knowledge about human learning and development.

Join this webinar for an in-depth exploration of the report from the authors and to understand the elements that create a high-quality competency-based education system.

iNACOL President and CEO Susan Patrick said, “The logic models presented within the report are intended to help the field understand the critical components of competency-based education at multiple levels of practice.”

This webinar is free to attend — participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.

Webinar Title: Levers and Logic Models: A Framework to Guide Research and Design of High-Quality K-12 Competency-Based Education Systems
