Competency-based higher education: hop on the bandwagon?
In my previous post, I attempted to summarize the arguments for and against the emerging Competency Based Education (CBE) phenomenon that is gaining momentum in North American higher education. How should we respond to this phenomenon? In my opinion, we should thoughtfully welcome this development, seeking both to get ahead of the curve and to shape its trajectory. Why? First, because the concerns driving this trend are legitimate and long standing. Second, because infusion of CBE into the higher education landscape is inevitable. And third, because CBE offers great opportunity to collaborate and innovate in ministry formation and leadership development.
