Renewing Higher Education: The Competency-Based Approach.
Peterson, Vance T., Ed.
Ten essays are presented that consider a number of philosophical and technical issues associated with an emerging curriculum strategy known as competency-based education. Among them are: The debate over the relevance of liberal versus practical subjects; faculty renewal; the impact of reform on the student; the validation of excellence; and the technology of curriculum change. These issues are given new meaning and emphasis when examined within the context of a competency perspective. (LBH)
