Abstract

Flexible learning environments usually refer to distance education programs; however, competency-based programs have become more popular. These programs fit a departmental goal of providing opportunities specifically designed for teaching theory with other opportunities designed to provide practical experiences. The practical experiences allow students to apply the skills and knowledge learned through the content presentation. One superintendent preparation program was rewritten with a competency-based approach. This paper will discuss how the curriculum and instructional strategies provide a 50/50 presentation of theory and practice.
