We will introduce an adult development model (piloted in a virtual format) designed to support competency field-testing in elementary, middle, and high school settings in South Carolina. The presentation will detail specific action research methods and tools used and highlight sample data gathered on both teacher learning and student growth. Participants will leave with new ways of thinking about evaluating the efficacy of competency-based learning models as well as concrete resources that they can adapt or share.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Examine the components of a scalable adult development model for competency field-testing and implementation.
  2. Articulate the role of a robust competency framework in implementing competency-based pedagogical practices.
  3. Review and reflect on early-stage impact data of a competency field-testing pilot.
