“All students deserve access to an education that prepares them to succeed even outside the classroom, to survive without forgetting what has been taught within the classrooms, “
And St. Philomena’s College (Autonomous) Mysore is committed to serving this goal in association with ipsr solutions limited.
The National level Intercollegiate Faculty Development Program on Outcome-Based Education was a successful event conducted as an online webinar for six days (30th August-4th September) and the main focus of this program was Higher education institution’s “OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION” as per the NEP Policy 2020.
The FDP sessions were delivered through live webinars and also through hands-on activities like Learning Management Portal (LMS). 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.

This event has witnessed some interesting question-answer sessions and also witnessed usage of Mentimeter Polls which simultaneously resulted in a good outcome. One interesting question raised by Dr. Mendus Jacob was; “Which are the strong pillars of Teacher? ” subsequently answered by the experts in the form of word Art.
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.
Before the session started on the topic of OBE, people were not having much clarity about OBE. The below bar chart image represents a Mentimeter poll based on the topic “How proficient are you in OBE?”.The bar chart illustrates that the highest percentage of respondents was having only moderate knowledge about the topic and it was 49%, 44% of the respondents were new to OBE, 5% of the respondents were having good knowledge and 1% of this group was expert in OBE.
The below bar chart image describes that at the end of the session the level of knowledge about OBE changes dynamically.
More than half of the respondents, that means 66% of them have a piece of good knowledge on OBE, 21% of the respondents were on moderate knowledge, 8% of the respondents still new to OBE and last 6% of the respondents were experts in OBE.
Please find the graphical representation of the feedback received after the FDP
Outcome-based education is the future and the future is almost here!
