Show Notes:

President Scott L Wyatt and Steve Meredith sit down with John Louviere and Rene Eborn, AVP/Exec Dir for Academic & Instructional Services and SAVP for Strategic Initiatives at Utah State University, to discuss the innovative approach USU is taking to competency-based education, specifically with general education assessments and online course offerings.

Featured Quotes:

So, for instance, the student would register for English 1010 and . . . there’s a pre-assessment to see where they fall, and then there’s content and casing material that the faculty members have developed for these courses that the students then move through at different speeds and variables, and then they move into the next assessment and the next assessment on their own time during the term and they have that flexibility during the term. They can take the whole term to do it or they can do it in the first two weeks and the faculty member works with them individually to help them learn the materials and move through the course or to demonstrate their competence into the course.
Rene Eborn

I think that the students that are coming to us now are different students than they used to be and they are very consumer driven. They do a lot of research before they come and then a lot of our adult learners are looking for that flexibility as well. And so, yes, I think it’s very much market-driven in that regard.
Rene Eborn
