Outcome-Based Learning is a pedagogical model that includes the restructuring of curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment practices to reflect the achievement of higher-order learning, as opposed to a mere accumulation of course credits.
A student-centric model that incorporates real-world scenarios into the curriculum, outcome-based learning emphasis on what students learn – the knowledge, skills, and attributes that students take away at the end of a program/course.
In Outcome-Based Learning, a curriculum framework is created that outlines specific and observable, measurable outcomes. It focuses on the proficiency/skills students need to acquire after the completion of a module/course. Activities in or outside the classroom are designed in a manner such that it helps students in achieving their learning outcomes.
To adhere to the education standard set by NEP 2020, the adoption of Outcome-Based Learning is crucial. It helps in equipping students with 21st Century skills in a personalized, engaging learning environment. Curriculum that includes Coding, Media Design, App Design, Game Design, Web Design, 3D Printing, Robotics, AI, AR, VR, IoT, Cloud Computing etc. can help in implementing Outcome-Based Learning in schools and prepare students to be industry- and career-ready.
Benefits of Outcome-Based Learning
Student-Centred Learning Approach
In Outcome-Based Learning, teachers decide which skills are required to master a particular subject, accordingly they design/restructure the curriculum. With a student-centred learning approach, the curriculum includes innovative activities, quizzes, and real-world projects to help students master the skills and achieve their learning goals.
Outcome-Based Learning brings clarity among the teachers and students. Clarity helps teachers deliver 21st century learning effectively, enhance student engagement & learning outcomes and make them future ready. Given that the learning goals are clearly spelled out ahead of time, students know what’s expected of them that helps them to better prepare for the assessments.
Outcome-Based Learning gives students, the flexibility and freedom to choose and understand the concepts in their preferred method of learning. Not only does it adapt to the student’s strengths and weaknesses, but it also allows them to learn at their own pace and attain proficiency in the subject matter.
Mastery of Skills
In Outcome-Based Learning, students need to achieve the predefined outcomes. They must keep trying until they master the required skills/proficiency. Once they have demonstrated the skills, they can move on to the next topic/module.
Teachers need to design dynamic and creative assessments that allow students to demonstrate their understanding, knowledge, and skills. From quizzes to activities to projects, teachers should plan for multiple formative assessments and give as many formative assessment attempts as possible. By providing early feedback on their progress, teachers can boost students’ confidence and help them achieve their learning goals.
