These real-life illustrations not only inspire but also provide valuable insights into the strategies and methods that have proven effective in engaging students, promoting deep learning, and cultivating essential skills for the 21st century.

As a teacher or teacher trainer, you play a pivotal role in shaping the future of education. This book aims to support you in developing your instructional practices to align with the competency-based education model. Whether you are a novice educator seeking guidance on the fundamentals of competency-based learning or an experienced teacher looking to refine your existing strategies, this resource book offers a wealth of knowledge and actionable recommendations to enhance your teaching practice.

In addition to strategies and tips, the book also explores the importance of fostering a growth mindset, cultivating student agency, and leveraging technology to facilitate competency-based learning. It encourages you to reflect on your current practices, experiment with innovative instructional methods, and create an inclusive and supportive learning environment that caters to the diverse needs and interests of your students.
