Competency Education Group Opens Membership - Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed

The Competency-Based Education Network, a grant-funded group of 30 institutions with competency-based programs, has become a free-standing nonprofit association and is opening up its membership. The group was founded in 2013 and has been funded exclusively by the Lumina Foundation. Last year C-BEN released a draft set of voluntary quality standards for the emerging field. As it becomes an association, the group said its priority is to spread knowledge and expertise about competency-based education. “C-BEN is based on the conviction that collaboration across institutional boundaries is key to accelerating progress on the toughest challenges facing advocates of competency-based learning,” Charla Long, C-BEN's executive director, said in a written statement. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2017/06/19/competency-education-group-opens-membership
