Transitioning to Competency-based Mastery Learning: A Professional Learning & Networking Event

Spend the day at Miss Porter’s School with fellow educators interested in Competency-based Mastery Learning.  Learn about how Miss Porter’s School is approaching this transition and share ideas with like-minded colleagues.

“Mastery is effective transfer of learning in authentic and worthy performance. Students have mastered a subject when they are fluent, even creative, in using their knowledge, skills, and understanding in key performance challenges and contexts at the heart of that subject, as measured against valid and high standards.”

Grant Wiggins

Date: Monday, February 20, 2023
