Join our four-part interactive workshop series and you’ll learn how to create quality CBE programs and credentials. Whether you are looking to build a full degree program or a micro-credential, Camp CBE can help you map your adventure!

Summer Camp Isn’t Just for Kids

The nation’s leading experts, serving as your Camp Counselors, will guide you through a series of activities – culminating in a competency-based exemplar that’s ripe for replication. We’ll start with a solid foundation, C-BEN’s Quality Framework for CBE Programs, and use backward design principles to create a program designed to reach today’s learners.

Though you’ll be sad when Camp CBE ends, you’ll be a happy camper when you know how to …

  • Connect various higher education initiatives, such as prior learning assessment, micro credentials, short-term stackable credentials,
  • Demonstrate increased confidence in competency-based methods and backward design principles,
  • Identify the knowledge, skills, abilities, and intellectual behaviors needed for a credential,
  • Write well-crafted, behaviorally described competency statements, and
  • Create performance-based assessments and level of mastery rubrics aligned to a credential pathway or career pipeline, whichever is most appropriate for the selected program.


All sessions will include a 30-minute break at 2:00 PM ET
