We are so proud to announce that Concordia University Wisconsin has been selected to join the Competency-Based Education Network (C-BEN), a national network of leading institutions in the area of competency based education.
C-BEN is a Washington DC based organization, supported by the Lumina Foundation and managed by Public Agenda. As a member, we will be working collaboratively with 30 other colleges and universities to conduct ground breaking research that could dramatically alter the future of higher education.
You may already know about the option to earn digital badges that allow you to demonstrate skills as you progress through our Masters in Education – Educational Technology program. Picture this concept applied to other education offerings. You could truly make your education a life-long endeavor with a steady stream of affordable and marketable competency based options. Life long learning is a core driver of the Office of Continuing and Distance Education. We want to make education more accessible and more affordable to meet the demands of a changing world. Our partnership with C-BEN is a tremendous means to accomplish that goal.
