Aurora Institute Invites Curious Educators to a One-Hour Overview of CBE Model

Education nonprofit Aurora Institute will hold a free one-hour “Intro to CBE” webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 25, intended for K–12 educators and administrators curious about the foundations of competency-based education: what is CBE as a model of public education; how CBE culture, pedagogy, and structure can center students and equity, and what policies and practices are needed to enable educators to consider using the CBE model in their classrooms.

The webinar will begin at 3 p.m. EST Jan. 25; presenters will include the institute’s Competency Works Program Director Laurie Gagnon; an administrator from the Harrisburg (South Dakota) School District about their implementation of CBE; and students attending CBE-based public schools.
