Prince George’s Community College in Maryland co-designed four CBE micro-pathways – called Pathways to Employment – with Education Design Lab. This brief features lessons learned from the learner journey, from enrollment to completion.
As part of the inaugural cohort of the Community College Growth Engine initiative, Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) used the design and development of their micro-pathways as an opportunity to shift the college towards a Competency-based Education (CBE) model.
In this Design Insights Brief, you’ll find:
- How Prince George’s approaches CBE.
- Full-size visuals of PGCC’s four micro-pathways: Healthcare Technician, IT Support Specialist, Hospitality Leadership, and Helper Mechanic.
