Launching a Unique Competency-Based Offering at a Community College (Part 2)

In an industry that has a tendency to get swept up by trends and fads, competency-based education (CBE) has proved its value time and again over a matter of decades. Over the past few years we’ve seen the number of CBE offerings skyrocket, matching the public’s focus on student outcomes and skill mastery. In this … Continue reading

Are you really leading?

Through the years I have seen a number of people who hold high ranking roles, CEO’s, VP’s, and other “C” suite titles.  I admit the titles led me to think of them as leaders, as the people creating the change of a new tomorrow.  A funny thing happened along the way, I found many were … Continue reading

To succeed do you need college? Or an L&D organization either?

With the recent news of LinkedIn’s purchase of Lynda.com I thought back to a recent discussion I had focused on the future leaning organization and the transformational model of learning.

Building the bridge between business & education: between performance success & education competency

Education costs are rising, student debt is overwhelming, and more people are questioning the value of education. In fact 32 percent of Americans 25+ have baccalaureate degrees and just 10% have associate’s degrees.

Competencies and assessment strategies

Recent posts have centered on the skills and attributes we expect our future colleagues to have. How will they get there and how will we know? How do we design L&D experiences with the goal of having assessments be “competency-based? “While there are many definitions of competency, most of them have two common elements: The … Continue reading

It really comes down to performance…

I been talking with a number of people recently on topics such as creating a community of practice (CoP), expanding professional development programs, and integrating talent management into learning past compliance.  In all of these discussions someone has brought up the need to develop and deliver “training” programs.  When I dig into the question a … Continue reading

What are the competencies we need to succeed in the future?

We use the term, we include in job descriptions but what is this “competency” stuff and what will it include for future learning and performance professionals to succeed in the next 5-10 years?  I am excited to lead a session at the Learning Solutions Conference in March focused on Who Is the Next-gen Worker (and … Continue reading
