Outcome Based Education

Outcome Based Education

SCES’s Indira College of Pharmacy, Pune has implemented Outcome-Based Education (OBE) model of teaching-learning from AY 2020-21 as directed by NAAC. The institute has adopted Program Outcomes (POs) defined by National Board of Accreditation (NBA).

Outcome-based education (OBE) is a didactic pedagogy which focuses on student centric teaching learning methods. According to OBE approach, it is expected that each student would attain a level of proficiency after completion of course and thereby attain a set level of accomplishment in specific program.

Establishing COs and POs

The CO statements are defined in accordance with the University course structure, considering each topic/ module of a course. The keywords used to define COs are based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s Taxonomy has been developed to promote higher forms of thinking in education, like analyzing, evaluating and creating instead of only remembering facts as in conventional education. It is most referred while designing course outcomes. For every course, there may be 6 or 7 COs including theory and practical. Program Outcomes (POs) and Course Outcomes (COs) for all Programs offered by the institution are stated and displayed on website. CO statements are developed by the course in-charge in consultation with HOD. The correlation between COs and POs is done through mapping using Correlation levels as 1 (slight/low), 2 (Moderate/Medium), 3 (Substantial/High) or – (No correlation)

Students, faculty and other stakeholders (Alumni, Parents, Industry, etc.) are made aware of these COs and POs through display on institute’s website. In addition, each subject teacher makes students aware about respective Course Outcomes before starting subject delivery.

Attainment level is decided by course in-charge in consultation with HOD as per the difficulty level of the course.
