Competency Based Education: The Emerging Center of Leadership.
Jones, Harry
This document suggests ways in which competency based education (CBE) offers a productive direction for education in a society of rapid environmental change. Part one discusses as a primary mission of the teacher providing a positive and affectionate model for children who have experienced little personal interaction at home. It also definds the individualized instruction of CBE as compatible in such a teaching situation. Part two illustrates the variety of data available to the individual and suggests that each student must be able to move forward at his own rate in different subject and skill areas. The study urges that: (a) the concept of graduation be deemphasized, (b) continuing education is a necessity in a society of advancing technologies, and (c) education should be available seven days a week on a 24-hour basis. It also notes that the independent study and modular concepts of CBE fit in well with such an educational reorganization. Part three discusses the future training of teachers emphasizing: (a) the importance of personal style, (b) the possible use of microteaching sessions to develop teaching techniques, and (c) problems and their solutions concerning CBE and certification.
