Spicing up Education, Recipe for a College Wide Competency Model (E) (HE.3)Track: Hacking Education
Learn the recipe to creating a college wide core competency model. Amid the buzz surrounding the current skills gap and lack of “employability” skills seen in job seekers— specifically, recent post-secondary graduates—we sought to create a solution that would ensure brighter futures for our students and industry alike. A cross-functional team was assembled to conduct research and gather stakeholder feedback; we sought examples of past successes and failures both within and outside of our institution. Indigenous collaboration contributed to the competencies and the outstanding visuals for the program. We hope to share the story (trials and tribulations included) of our foray into student core competency development and acknowledge where we are, how we got here, and what the future holds for our graduates.
