As part of our partnership with the Mastery Transcript Consortium, Nueva is pioneering competency-based learning and assessment in a number of new courses. In this presentation, we will share our process of creating an interdisciplinary, competency-based course in the humanities and social sciences that examines artistic and activist responses to the HIV/AIDS crisis. We’ll discuss the exciting challenges and opportunities presented by a team-taught course that responds to student interest and skill, and that incorporates portfolios, asynchronous learning, and travel. Participants will come away with concrete strategies for incorporating competency-based learning in their own classes, on both a micro and macro level.

All disciplines and grade levels are welcome!
