One-day Faculty development programme on 8th December 2018, Saturday, on “Outcome Based Education”, at SMS Varanasi
This workshop is designed to help participants understand how Outcomes Based Education can be designed, implemented and used to work as an essential aid in not only ensuring that students undertake deep learning and display desired outcomes but also constructively align the assessment and evaluation techniques to match such learning outcomes. Though the use of Outcomes-based Education in higher education is comparatively recent in the Indian subcontinent, its significance in higher education learning and teaching has increased in response to the pressing requirement of educational institutions to seek accreditation from national bodies like the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), and even International bodies like the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), etc.
The workshop aims to help participants understand the following –
· Concept of Outcome-Based Education (OBE)
· Key Constituents of OBE
· Different Levels of Learning Outcomes
· Assessment & Evaluation of Learning Outcomes
· Calculation of attainment levels of Learning outcomes
Workshop Learning Outcomes After the end of the workshop, participants shall be able to –
· Revisit the ‘Vision’ and ‘Mission’ statements of the institution and departments in the light of Outcome-based Education.
· Frame ‘Programme Educational Objectives’ (PEOs) in alignment to the Vision and Mission statements of the institution.
· Align ‘Programme Outcomes’ (POs) and ‘Programme Specific Outcomes’ (PSOs) with the PEOs.
· Frame ‘Course Outcomes’ (COs) and align it with the POs.
· Design ‘Assessment’ and ‘Evaluation’ tools and techniques for finding out the direct and indirect attainment levels of learning outcomes.
· Calculate the overall attainment levels (in percentage) of COs, POs, PSOs, PEOs and even Mission!
All the participants are requested to bring the syllabus and the external question paper of the recent year, which they taught in the current semester.
