ACE-IT CBE Course/Program Development and Refinement Conference

Hello Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to attend the 2nd Biannual ACE-IT Competency-Based Education Symposium on how to develop new CBE courses/programs and refine existing ones. This symposium is free of charge, conducted in a virtual format, and scheduled for July 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (CDT).  The conference builds upon the success of the first ACE-IT Symposium where attendees from 50 colleges and universities throughout the state of Texas, 19 other US states, and 5 countries joined internationally known CBE experts to learn more about how to develop new or improve existing CBE programs in accordance with evolving best practices, as well as how to incorporate apprenticeship opportunities into CBE programs.

In response to survey feedback from attendees in the first symposium, the format of the Second ACE-IT Symposium will not only continue to offer breakout sessions on the basics of CBE course and program development, but has been expanded to include more intermediate and advanced topics that include but are not limited to: new policies concerning SACS accreditation of CBE programs; course scheduling, faculty loads, and faculty compensation models; new, cutting-edge best practices in integrating apprenticeship opportunities into CBE programs; understanding prior learning assessment (PLA) and how to apply it in a CBE program; and a special session on student services in CBE programs and the role of academic coaches.

Whether you are new to CBE or an experienced practitioner, the Second ACE-IT Symposium has something for you. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to attend a Conference that truly prioritizes sharing knowledge and practices that can get you on your way to developing and implementing CBE courses and programs or refining existing ones. The Conference webpage and the registration link can be accessed on Eventbrite here. Please contact Kevin Peek if you have any questions or would like to receive additional information about the event.
