Weaving 21st century skills into your curriculum using an open standards framework
Today’s learners need 21st century skills that are critical in their academic and employment careers. These skills are taught across many courses, but are often not explicitly assessed. So even if learners are gaining these skills, they don’t have a clear understanding of what they’ve learned or evidence they can show to employers.

The challenge for institutions is how to include 21st century skills assessments in your courses or as supplemental modules using assignments you already have, across topic areas, in courses at any level.

Competencies and Academic Standards Exchange® (CASE®) is a standard developed by IMS Global Learning Consortium that is used to exchange information about learning and education competencies and 21st-century skills. CASE is used to convert frameworks, such as learning standards, competencies, and rubrics, presented in traditional digital formats like PDF into formats that can be easily read by software. CASE removes the burden of retranslating the frameworks for software and makes it easier to associate the frameworks with other entities such as a Comprehensive Learner Record.

Help your learners master and communicate the 21st century skills they need to progress their careers by joining Dr Deborah Everhart, VP of Design & Innovation from Learning Objects and Jeff Bohrer, Technical Program Manager from IMS Global Learning Consortium in this informative webinar. They will provide overview of the CASE framework and how it enables the exchange of competency data aligned to 21st century skills using an open standards framework. A local use case, currently underway with one of the group of 8 universities, and some of the results to date will be profiled by facilitator Margo Griffith, Executive Manager - Partnerships from Learning Objects.
