Qualifications of faculty developing CBE programs in business
Dr. Diana Gilmer Echols, Patricia W Neely
Interest in competency-based education (CBE) has been growing as institutions look for new and innovative ways to deliver quality degree programs. A new generation of CBE programs is being developed in an environment that is characterized by a lack of standards and commonly accepted practices (Fain, 2015). Questions abound about the qualifications and backgrounds of faculty and subject matter experts who are developing CBE programs in the business discipline (AAUP, 2003). This study examines the backgrounds of 47 faculty members who have participated in the development of several CBE programs in business.
