Is it time for competency-based GIS education?
from GIS Professional
Educational institutions have been exploring and implementing competency-based education since World War II. This approach to teaching and learning breaks down topics into discrete skills known as competencies. Students must show mastery of each competency (or a group of competencies) before moving on to learn the next one. The U.S. armed services used CBE to train soldiers to quickly master the hands-on skills needed to support the war effort.
