Outcome-based education (OBE) is a learner-centered learning philosophy that focuses on measuring students’ performance (the outcomes). OBE itself is not a teaching style or method, it is a principle for designing your teaching in an effective way that enables learning happen and helps students to achieve the intended learning outcomes. Therefore, what matters most in OBEis “what is learnt” rather than “what is taught”. (Spady,1994)
 

 

WHY OBE?


KMUTT has adopted OBE approach because:

“เป้าหมาย” หรือ “ผลลัพธ์” ของการให้การศึกษานั้นคือ อะไร

ว่าเรากำลังทำอะไร ทำได้ดีหรือไม่ และจะต้องปรับปรุง การศึกษาของเราอย่างไร

ของเราเป็นสำคัญ และช่วยให้ผู้เรียนมองเห็นอนาคตตัวเองชัดขึ้น

ทุกส่วน ของการศึกษาจะมีบทบาทและหน้าที่เชื่อมโยงถึงกัน มุ่งไปสู่ทิศทางเดียวกัน

 

 

 

Key Concept of OBE


Clarity of focus - This means that everything teachers do must be clearly focused on what they want students to know, understand and be able to do. In other words, teachers should focus on helping students to develop the knowledge, skills and personalities that will enable them to achieve the intended outcomes that have been clearly articulated.


Backwards design - as the starting point define clearly what students should be able to do on completing their course of study. Once this has been done, all instructional decisions are then made to ensure achieve this desired end result Create learning opportunities - Teachers must strive to provide expanded opportunities for all students. This principle is based on the idea that not all learners can learn the same thing in the same way and in the same time. However, most students can achieve high standards if they are given appropriate opportunities.


Constructive alignment - design the curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment to enable students to achieve the intended learning outcomes.


Outcomes assessment and continuous improvement - collect data on students’ achievement of learning outcomes and use outcome assessment data to inform further development and enhancement of the program/-subject.


The OBE Framework


 

This means that everything teachers do must be clearly focused on what they want students to know, understand and be able to do. In other words, teachers should focus on helping students to develop the knowledge, skills and personalities that will enable them to achieve the intended outcomes that have been clearly articulated.

 

 

The OBE approach is a continuous process of education wherein the curriculum, teaching and learning strategies, and assessment tools are improved continuously. The OBE learning process can be stated into four steps:
 

(a) Plan (Syllabus Writing/Review) 
The Course Learning Outcomes are aligned with the KMUTT QF, Program objectives and Program-level Learning Outcomes (PLOs). The syllabi reflect strategies (learning plan) for achieving the outcomes, as well as for measuring the outcomes (assessment).
 

(b) Implement (Course Delivery) 
Carry out the learning plan and strategies planned for producing the outcomes.
 

(c) Measure/Assess (Assessment)
Carry out the strategies planned for measuring the learning outcomes and objectives. Collect this data and analyze it to determine the results (Assessment Phase). This phase is where feedback is obtained.
 

(d) Respond/Improve (Continuous Quality Improvement)

Determine what needs to be changed to make improvements. These changes are the basis of new or revised outcomes and objectives for the next cycle of the process. This process can be looked at on a program or course level.
