Outcome-based education is defined as an approach to education in which decisions about the curriculum are made and at the end of the course students should be able to present – professional knowledge, skills, abilities, values, and attitudes- rather than on the educational process and also it generates a transparent expectation of excellent results.

The event was marked with the presence of almost 1000+ participants from 500+ colleges within 27 States (including UTs) and 6 other participating Countries (Nigeria, Afghanistan, Liberia, Nepal, UAE & USA)which made this event a grand one.

The Shift from Content-based Education to Outcome-based Education was aimed to prepare learners for life in society and for performing tasks. The intention of the outcome-based approach is to focus as much on the process of learning and the final outcome, as well as on the knowledge and skills. In this way, the process of achieving outcomes during the process of learning can be related directly to the way in which outcomes are achieved in the world of work.
