WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 18, 2018) – On Wednesday, February 14, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET, iNACOL will host a Leadership Webinar to highlight issues and action steps for state policymakers to support personalized, competency-based education.
States and local communities have an opportunity to rethink the definition of student success and articulate a vision for what students should know and be able to do upon graduation to succeed in college and the workforce. With clear, comprehensive definitions of student success, states can begin to transform state K-12 education systems to prepare students with the necessary knowledge and skills.
This webinar features recommendations from the forthcoming iNACOL report, Current to Future State: Issues and Action Steps for State Policy to Support Personalized, Competency-Based Learning, which offers action steps state policymakers can take to create the conditions for personalized, competency-based learning at scale.
This webinar will explore five issues policymakers can tackle to transform education systems to personalized, competency-based education:
- Redefining student success;
- Ensuring meaningful qualifications;
- Rethinking accountability to drive continuous improvement;
- Developing educator capacity for competency-based education; and
- Building capacity to lead change.
iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “This report provides policymakers with a roadmap to catalyze transformational change for K-12 education systems — with a vision moving from the current state to a future state — that ensures success for all students.”
This webinar is free to attend — participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
