OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION (OBE) MODULE
Outcome Based Education (OBE) is an educational process in which the emphasis is placed on a clearly articulated idea of what the students are expected to know or to do.
The OBE is a continuous process of education wherein the curriculum, teaching, and learning strategies and assessment tools are improved continuously. There is no single style or technique of teaching and assessment in OBE. Educational institutions can come up with their own unique module to assist the students in achieving their goals.
Normally, Educational Outcomes is divided into two types namely Program Outcomes (PO) and Course Outcomes (CO). The teaching faculty will take the role of a trainer, facilitator or mentor for the students.
The following two tables depict the CEC Student Category and the Strategies to help all types of students in achieving their goals.
