TAACCCT Webinar Series on Competency Based Education - Part 1: Effective Strategies
Friday, September 16, 2016
1:00 PM ~ 2:00 PM ET

With the increasing demand for postsecondary skills and credentials, and growth in the number of adults and “non-traditional” students with prior learning/experience, numerous TAACCCT programs have leveraged their grants to develop competency based education (CBE) models. In this webinar you will learn the nuts and bolts and effective strategies for implementing CBE from grantees that have engaged in this work. You will also hear about the challenges they faced and how they were able to work through them.

TAACCCT Webinar Series on Competency Based Education - Part 2: Addressing Financial Aid Barriers
Thursday, September 29, 2016
12:00 PM ~ 1:00 PM ET

A major challenge TAACCCT grantees have encountered in implementing competency-based education has been administering federal financial aid. Join a conversation with David Musser, Policy Liaison and Implementation from the office of Federal Financial Aid with the U.S. Department of Education to hear about resources and strategies to tackle this challenge.

Attendees are invited to submit financial aid related questions to the TAACCCT mailbox by Friday, September 9 and 5:00 p.m. EDT. Questions will be addressed during the webinar or through direct correspondence with the grantee.
