Learning Outcomes; Student Competency vs. Capability

By Tom McDonald, Marketing Consultant, News/Athletics/Events, Mobile Solutions andNews/Athletics/Events

I participated in a lively LinkedIn debate that compared and contrasted the perceived connotative differences between student competency and student capability.

For simplification, lets bucket each term into the students long term ability to become a productive member of society, in a field of interest, that they have chosen.

This brings us the the Higher Educational Outcomes represented in the graphic below.

Most students need to be empowered, via Higher Education, to be successful in their chosen field.

With all of the discussions and debate going on about educational outcomes and the mandates for educational institutions to demonstrate their student educational outcomes, what are we in Higher Education doing differently, to ensure that our students learn, transfer and apply the required critical information, long term, to be life ready, when graduation comes?

Here are some ideas to start the discussion; Your comments are encouraged:

(1) Personalized learning

(2) Flipped Classrooms

(3) Blended Learning Environments
