Moving Towards Competency-based Education: Preparing Today for Tomorrow


12:00-1:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 26, 2022, via Zoom and 209 Beard Hall
 
Competency-based education has been on the mind of health science educators for numerous years. Despite discussions within the academy about competency-based education, pharmacy education has not fully adopted that philosophy. However, schools of pharmacy can prepare by adopting some evidence-based strategies that would align with competency-based education. In this session, we will review some key aspects of competency education and discuss what can we do, that is aligned with the evidence, that will help better position the school for the unknown future.
 
Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe some key elements to competency=based education
  2. Take action in updating your instructional and assessment strategies to align with competency-based education
Target Audience:  This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-graduate trainees, and students.
 
Registration: For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00. (UNC Affiliates are faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)
 
 
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, October 21st, at 5 p.m.
