About OBE

The workshop is specially targeted at students of staff members of universities and colleges those who would like to practice OBE – framework in academia to benefit the students.An OBE curriculum means starting with a clear picture of what is important for students to be able to do, then organizing the curriculum, instruction and assessment to make sure this learning ultimately happens.The focus on outcomes creates a clear expectation of what needs to be accomplished by the end of the course. Students will understand what is expected of them and teachers will know what they need to teach during the course.OBE provides an opportunity for comparison across institutions. On an individual level, institutions can look at what outcomes a student has achieved to decide what level the student would be at within a new institution. On an institutional level, institutions can compare themselves, by checking to see what outcomes they have in common, and find places where they may need improvement, based on the achievement of outcomes at other institutions. This one day workshop aims to bring faculty members and students to get awareness on OBE and helps in providing quality education to the students and also presents the ranking of students.
