Registration is now open for a free discussion to be held in Washington, DC, on how competency-based education (CBE) is transforming student learning at a growing number of community colleges.

This event, slated for Nov. 18 from 9-11:30 a.m. ET, will feature college presidents working on the cutting edge of competency-based innovation and key leaders from the accreditation and policy communities.

The focus of the discussion will be on how community colleges are designing CBE programs that meet the particular needs of their key stakeholders and what lessons their efforts hold for other postsecondary institutions. Speakers will further examine how the current policy environment helps and hinders the scaling of CBE models and similar innovative approaches to postsecondary education.

The event is sponsored by ACE, the American Association of Community Colleges, New America Foundation and Western Governors University.

For more information and to register, please visit the ACE website.
