Deficiencies of Traditional Education

Provides students with a learning environment with little attention to whether or not students ever learn the material.

Students are given grades and rankings compared to each other students become exam oriented or CGPA driven.
Graduates are not completely prepared for the workforce. Lack of emphasis on soft skills needed in jobs e.g. communication skills, interpersonal skills, analytical skills, etc.

What Is Outcome Based Engineering Education?

ITS NOT WHAT WE TEACH, ITS WHAT YOU LEARN

Outcome-Based Education
Employers Rating of Skills/Qualities
Communication (verbal & written) Honesty/Integrity Teamwork skills Interpersonal skills Strong work ethics Motivation & initiative Flexibility/adaptability Analytical skills Computer skills Organisational skills Detail oriented Leadership skills Self confidence Friendly/outgoing personality Well mannered / polite Tactfulness GPA (3.0 or better) Creativity Sense of humour Entrepreneurial skills/risk taker 4.69 4.59 4.54 4.50 4.46 4.42 4.41 4.36 4.21 4.05 4.00 3.97 3.95 3.85 3.82 3.75 3.68 3.59 3.25 3.23

Outcome Based Education

Shifting from measuring input and process to include measuring the output (outcome)

Input

Process

Output

From a Resource- or Input-Based or Process-Based Approach to an Outcome-Based Approach

Outcome Based Education (OBE)

OBE is a process that involves the restructuring of curriculum, assessment and reporting practices in education to reflect the achievement of high order learning and mastery rather than accumulation of course credits. Amongst Expected Changes: Curriculum Restructuring/Revision Innovative/Flexible Delivery Method Variety of Assessment & Evaluation Methods Collection of Evidences Continuous Quality Improvement (Closing the Loop)

Outcome Based Education (OBE)

OBE addresses the following key questions: What do you want the students to have or able to do? How can you best help students achieve it? How will you know whether they have achieved it? How do you close the loop?

The Relevancy of OBE

Rating/Accreditation requirements: 1. Quality Assurance Audit by the Ministry of Higher Education: emphasis on learning outcomes.
2.

Accreditation Requirement for Engineering Programme : The New Accreditation Manual emphasizes learning outcomes Related to the Washington Accord - A Global Dimension.

Some Real Benefits of OBE

Anticipation of real benefits More directed & coherent curriculum Graduates will be more relevant to industry & other stakeholders (more well rounded graduates) Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) is an inevitable consequence

Continuous Improvement

Say what you do

Improve it

Do what you say

Prove it

Programme Outcomes (PO)


http://foe.mmu.edu.my/main/undergrad/beng_comp.html

Programme Outcomes are statements describing what students are expected to know and be able to perform or attain by the time of graduation, and shall. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviours that student acquire through the programme, and are linked to the Programme Objectives

Short term outcomes (at the point of graduation)

Programme Outcomes (PO) for Computer Engineering
