On November 10th and 11th, 2014 DePaul University’s School for New Learning, Center to Advance Education for Adults (CAEA) hosted 21 adult learning professionals representing universities and colleges, non-profits and businesses around the country to learn and explore a range of perspectives and approaches to competence-based learning (CBL).

The Institute was designed to help participants learn to:

  • create conditions to enhance individuals’ learning, performance, and self-efficacy
  • help learners in CBL contexts to: a) extract learning from experience through various reflection strategies, b) collaborate on criteria (benchmarks, rubrics, indicators) and products/outputs that demonstrate learning and c) apply learning in specific contexts
  • construct competence ‘statements’ (target outcomes) that inspire and guide the development and demonstration of new learning
