Southern New Hampshire President to Advise Education Dept. on Competency-Based Learning - Casey Fabris, Chronicle of Higher Ed

Paul LeBlanc, president of Southern New Hampshire University, will take a three-month leave of absence to join the Department of Education as a senior adviser to the under secretary of education, Ted Mitchell. Mr. LeBlanc will be involved with the department’s innovation agenda, specifically its experiments with competency-based education and with establishing new accreditation methods for innovative programs. Southern New Hampshire University has been at the forefront of competency-based education with its College for America program, which was the first competency-based degree program approved by the department to award student aid based on the direct assessment of student learning. http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/southern-new-hampshire-president-to-advise-education-dept-on-competency-based-learning/55973
