Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. In this webinar with Dr. O.T. Wendell, PhD of A.T. Still Health Sciences University, we'll explore how ATSU worked with Sagence Learning to create a model to guide the design, development, delivery, and support of their competency-based methodologies, detail how ATSU and Sagence Learning established a process and plan to create and launch ATSU's first certificate in Behavioral Health, and learn a general framework of how a university insured that its CBE initiative got the internal agreement and effort needed to successfully launch a CBE program.

with a common "language" and purpose that aligns to your institution's
mission, reputation, and student expectations; and results in students
enrolling in and graduating from CBE courses and programs.

and differentiators of CBL programs.
