Recently we released Cracking the Credit Hour, Amy Laitinen’s look at how higher education’s reliance on the credit hour is inhibiting innovation. Even since the report was released, there are new developments, including a new proposal by the University of Southern New Hampshire to offer a competency-based associate’s degree.
Join Amy next week for a Twitter chat on the credit hour, new (and rumored) developments in competency-based learning, and the implications for higher education in the future. We’ll be on Twitter using the hash tag #credithour at 11 a.m. Eastern time, Thursday, October 11. Mark your calendars and join us!
