This free Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest webinar (Zoom) showcases how competency-based education (CBE) strategies can positively impact student learning outcomes and how to create structures within a school or classroom to effectively implement CBE strategies.


Kristina L. Zeiser

A senior researcher, Kristina L. Zeiser, from the American Institutes for Research will present an overview and key findings from a study that examined the relationship between CBE practices and students’ learning skills, behaviors, and dispositions. Participants also will hear from a school leader with a high school in Illinois about her experience implementing CBE instructional strategies, including challenges and lessons learned. Finally, representatives from the Minnesota Department of Education will discuss how the Department is supporting state-approved alternative and online learning programs implementing CBE.
