What to expect this year

Featured sessions will share a framework of foundational strategies that are core to a successful competency initiative.

Awareness and Learning: Learn from subject matter experts about how to establish a culture of awareness and learning among students, campus collaborators, and partners and the importance and impact competencies have on student success, institutional effectiveness, and graduate outcomes.

Assessing Competency Proficiency: Hear from expert colleagues about assessing competency proficiency among students, approaches to sharing assessment results with students to enhance proficiency development over time, and ways to measure the overall proficiency of student cohorts.

Articulation: Employers now prioritize competency proficiency as more important than GPA, and in some cases, major when engaging candidates. Students’ ability to articulate and contextualize their competency proficiency to employers is a key to a successful transition to the world of work.
