Webinar Details

Join Dr. Nancy O’Neill, Acting Director of the University System of Maryland’s William E. Kirwan Center for Academic Innovation, as she shares practical tips to move your Competency-Based Education (CBE) efforts forward. Dr. O’Neill has coached academic program directors on curriculum mapping, refinement of program- and course-level student learning outcomes, and the use of signature assignments as vehicles for student demonstrations of learning. In this webinar, Dr. O’Neill will draw on resources from outside nursing education that can help support the work happening within nursing education to move to CBE. She will pick up on the paradigm shift concept introduced by Dr. Englander in the November 2022 AACN webinar Moving the Needle on Meaningful Competency Assessment and then move to some nuts and bolts, including when to refine course learning outcomes; a framework for engaged learning to guide course improvement, and the benefits of signature assignments.
