This promising practice was designed in response to ongoing requests from academic and workforce programs in institutions of higher education in Texas and throughout the country for guidance in developing quality CBE programs. It consists of four mutually reinforcing steps:
Step One: Disseminate general information via our website, publications, and conference activity about the CBE bachelors’ programs at South Texas College and how to request an advisory meeting to develop and implement a new CBE program.
Step Two: Schedule advisory meetings with college and university departments seeking information/guidance about how to develop CBE programs.
Stage Three: Provide additional advising and materials as needed, such as our book, “Competency-Based Education Made Easy,” which describes the step-by-step process that we recommend for developing and implementing CBE programs.
Stage Four: Ongoing follow-up is proffered upon request, which includes but is not limited to additional virtual meetings, travel to the college/university developing the new CBE program, and specialized individual and group information sessions.
