Are You Educated If You Are Competent?

Arizona Daily Sun recently wrote about Personalized Learning and how the program defines education quality through the competency-based education model.


"For a university that pioneered distance learning, Northern Arizona University’s foray into online, self-paced degree programs seems like a natural fit.

But on the Mountain Campus and elsewhere, competency-based education uncoupled from the credit hour is raising questions fundamental to higher education: What is a college? What does it mean to be educated at one? And how does a college work to accomplish that goal?

As the host community to a bricks-and-mortar campus of 20,000 students, Flagstaff has a big stake in how those questions shake out. The Internet has proved to be a disruptive technology in many fields, and using its interactivity to eliminate “seat time” in class and semester-long course modules has wide ramifications for a residential college campus."
