Community College Consortium for OER (CCCOER) upcoming Webinar: Competency-based Learning and Open Educational Resources

Join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) on Tuesday, June 11, 10:00 am (U.S. Pacific time) for a webinar on Competency-based learning and OER. Competency-based learning is gaining traction as institutions strive to personalize learning experiences and decrease time to graduate. Students demonstrate mastery at their own pace through e-Portfolio assessments or on-demand tests and institutions often recommend free or open educational resources (OER) along with prior learning as a source for learning materials.
Hear from several higher education experts on how OER can complement competency-based learning to improve student outcomes including:

Dr. Ellen Marie Murphy, Executive Director of Curriculum and Learning Systems, Ivy Bridge College. Ivy Bridge College is a two-year online institution streamlining the transfer process to four-year degrees through personalized learning programs.

Dr. Chari Leader-Kelley, Vice-President of Learning Counts at the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning (CAEL). Learning Counts specializes in the assessment of prior learning for college credit. Dr. Leader-Kelly is currently working with the Saylor foundation on embedding portfolio templates into open courses to allow students to demonstrate and reflect upon their learning.
