Overview

In a competency based learning model, there is a major shift in a teacher’s role as they give more ownership to their students. A teacher becomes a facilitator of learning, designing engaging learning progressions and then ensuring that students are on track and mastering content as they engage in learning progressions asynchronously or at their own pace. This support for students involves teachers strategically developing structures that allow for targeted small grouping, peer support, differentiated scaffolds, and individualized intervention.

Audience
