Competency-based education (CBE) is one of the newer, game-changing models some policymakers and higher education leaders cite as a way to provide quality, yet affordable, postsecondary education. In the first half of this session, CBE practitioners will provide an introduction to the CBE academic delivery models, as well as an overview of the financial aid challenges and common issues. The second half of the session will include interactive, small group breakouts focused on responding to specific and common scenarios. The session will expand your CBE knowledge and explore alternatives for effective aid delivery.
