This webinar explores key features and concepts related to competency-based education and assessment for learning.  Participants will apply competency-based assessment principles using examples from the new Canadian Assessment of Clinical Competence (ACC-SLP/AUD) to enable application of these concepts and strategies in their own contexts.  
 

Learning Objectives:

• Describe key features of competency-based education;
• Apply competency-based assessment principles using examples from the new national student performance assessment tool; and
