Virtual Academy: “Curriculum Design, Delivery and Assessment in accordance with OBE – Session 2 “
Dec 5, 2018 3:30 PM IST
I strongly believe that the Quality of Education Cannot be Better than the Quality of Teachers.
Since 2014, National Board of Accreditation becoming an authorised signatory, outcome based education (OBE) has become a buzzword across all technical institutions/universities in India enabling all the Institutions to explore new innovative approaches in curriculum design, teaching pedagogies and assessment patterns. Though there are many predominating advantages with the philosophy of Outcome Based Education (OBE), due to a long standing existing system, quite a number of challenges are yet to be addressed in the context of curriculum design, delivery and assessments which are be addressed on top priority to implement OBE in the way it is expected. In this webinar, i am sure that the participants will understand in a better way the philosophy of OBE in the true sense, curriculum design, formulation of Program Outcomes, Program Educational Objectives, Course, Course Outcomes, Course Contents as well as mapping.
