Project Title: 
Competency-based education in user-centered design
Project Description: 
My research examines the current state of objective-based learning in user experience and user-centered design curriculum, and investigates the cognitive and performance improvements that may emerge from instituting competency-based modeling schemas. I study the improvements and limitations that a self-paced curriculum places on existing user experience students.
