Join Helix at OLC: Three Days, Two Breakout Sessions and One Goal

We are counting down the days until we hit the road again. This time, you can find us at OLC’s Emerging Technologies for Online Learning International Symposium in Dallas where we will talk about Competency-Based Education and other instructional strategies.

The three-day event gathers more than 700 onsite and 1,000 virtual faculty, administrators, instructional technologists, and instructional designers, all eager to collaborate on technologies and strategies that can increase the effectiveness of online learning.

Helix Education leaders have been invited to present two breakout sessions:

1. Defining and Differentiating Personalized Learning, Adaptive Learning and Competency-Based Education

April 23rd at 9:40 a.m.

Our team will discuss how each approach works, the ways that students interact with content and achieve mastery under each approach, and the role of data and targeted assessments.

2. Competency-Based Education: From Vision to Reality

April 24th at 10:40 a.m.

Our team will lead attendees through a CBE readiness assessment, discussing the reality of implementation and the consideration of leadership roles, programs, financial aid, service models, policies, technology and accreditation.

We are thrilled to be part of the line-up of education thought leaders and look forwarding to increasing the visibility of these emerging education models and instructional strategies.

We have one goal with these sessions – to help educators understand the particulars of each approach, including the kinds of processes and changes that are warranted by each one so they can navigate which will best enable them to achieve their EdTech objectives.

We hope to see you at OLC in Dallas!
