Core Competency Groups Meet at BCC

Thirty full- and part-time faculty met at BCC today to review core competency samples of student work. The student work – including a mix of excellent, average, and poor levels – were considered in light of BCC’s core competency rubrics. Faculty spent two hours discussing the strengths and weaknesses they saw, and authored reports summarizing their findings. It was a unique opportunity to see a group consisting of Nursing, Early Childhood, and Sociology instructors reviewing student writing; or English, Human Services, and Hospitality faculty considering critical thinking. Faculty granting the oral communication competency met to review video of student speeches. Comments about the event ranged from useful to “we need to do more of this.”
