The Case for Competency Based Instruction in the Preparation and Renewal of Educational Administrators.
Larson, Robert
Competency based instruction (CBI) can be used either for preservice or inservice purposes. The impact of CBI on students is to (1) enable them to systematically determine their personal learning needs; (2) increase responsibility for their own learning and enhance autonomy and sense of personal direction; (3) provide feedback; and (4) assure a better match between student capabilities and the needs of a current or potential job. CBI programs should be developed by a cross-sectional approach to specify valid competencies, and the program should assume responsibility for providing experiences through which students can gain specified competencies. Professors in CBI programs need to develop a repertoire of approaches to teaching and learning and see themselves as instruments for learning. (MLF)
