Kathryn Anderson-Levitt & Meg Gardinier
Competency-Based Education

Today we take a critical look at the idea of competency-based education. Not only is the term hard to define but also it has various political agendas depending on which organization is promoting it.

With me are Kathryn Anderson-Levitt, a Professor Emerita of Anthropology at the University of Michigan–Dearborn and Meg Gardinier, who teaches at the School for International Training’s (SIT) Doctorate in Global Education Program. They’ve recently co-edited a special issue of Comparative Education entitled “Contextualising Global Flows of Competency-based Education.”
