CompetencyWorks Blog

Authors: Chris Sturgis

Issues: Issues in Practice, Learn Lessons from the Field


iNCL_CW_logo_K12CompetencyWorks released An International Study in Competency Education: Postcards from Abroad in October. You can access the archived webinar and additional resources here. We also just learned about the Common Ground Project based in Brussels, offering a slightly different way of framing competency education. (See Our Learning EcoSystem.)
