In this course, participants will identify the ONE shift they need to make to increase relevance, engagement, motivation, and self-direction in their settings. Shifting to a proficiency based education model requires a transformation in teacher assessment practices and beliefs. It is a shift from teacher evaluating student learning to learners creating evidence of proficiency.This course aims to simplify this process.
