Learners and their Learning Process

Bryan Alexander Webinar; Learners and their Learning Process

AAEEBL is very lucky to have Bryan Alexander for our first webinar of 2016.  He is a consultant to the world on how to understand technology and its effects on learning and education.  One of the creators of the MOOC idea — the interactive, social form of MOOC — he is a strong contributor to innovations in education and also a wonderfully engaging speaker.

His topic is “Learners and Their Learning Process.”  He will talk for 20 minutes and then will open the webinar to discussion (audience uses chat; Bryan responds in voice) for the last 30 minutes of the Webinar.  Trent Batson will serve as moderator.

The webinar is free but you must register to attend.

competency-based education

How Nightingale College Moved 70 Students to CBE in Just 2 Weeks

WEBINAR | December 8, 2015 | 1:00pm ET

Chances are, you’ve heard of competency-based education (CBE). Your institution may be just starting to explore CBE, or you might already be developing some courses or programs and would like to learn more.  That’s why we’ve invited Nightingale College to talk about how they got started with CBE and how they were able to roll it out to 70 students in just two weeks.

Nightingale College wanted to start offering competency-based courses but quickly ran into problems because their LMS couldn’t support it.

Join us on December 8 for a live webinar with Nightingale College to find out:

•    Why CBE is an ideal model for their “nontraditional” students
•    How they support self-paced learning and use tools to track student progress
•    What the initial program results are, including feedback from students and faculty
•    Why they chose Brightspace as their technology platform for CBE course delivery
