2015 Predictions for Education / Competence Based Education

Looking for information about the curriculum and trends, got an article Dian Schaffhauser (01/07/2015), who considers the following: Online learning will grow this year, but only modestly; more colleges and universities will test out competency-based assessment; and education technology will continue expanding as an industry, driven by investment capital. Those are three of the predictions for the coming year from higher education research and advisory firm Eduventures.

In the same way, Michael Horn wrote and published (1/08/2015) 5 Predictions For Education In 2015, which are very interesting. According to him this new year and with it, hopes for new developments in education. And the first one is:

1. Competency-based learning gains steam

Fueled by interest from hundreds of higher education institutions and the Department of Education, competency-based learning will gain steam. Coupled with online learning, as my colleague Michelle Weise has written, it will constitute a disruptive force in higher education unlike any we’ve seen.

Also Ebersole (2015) commitment Competence Based Education as part of the list of issues to consider in higher education in this 2015.

In short, the universities continue to work on competency-based curriculum, blending learning, connectivity as a tool in the learning process, open educational resources, and whereas Competency-based education is a response between vocational training, market and employers.

Welcome these predictions ...
