A look at how competencies can be used in courses

A Competency is the ability of to do a specific task correctly. Each of these competencies are usually further defined as a set of behaviours that enable the identification, development and assessment of the behaviours and competency in an individual. 

This presentation will have a look at different approaches taken in three different disciplines as to how competencies were structured.

This presentation will also look at how the new competency based education changes are being implemented in Moodle 3.1 and other plugins used for tracking competencies.
