Advocating the importance of education beyond learning process, Outcome Based Learning emphasizes the learning processes that would lead to planed and specified learning outcomes. The essential attributes reflect the students’ competencies and values, and represent outcomes that are transferable to a variety of contexts for the present and the future.
Ever since the founding of Hong Kong Institute of Education, student learning outcomes have been assimilated into the existing Bachelor of Education curriculum. With the introduction of the OBL approach, we make the outcomes explicit at the Institute level. Outcome-based Unit located within the centre for learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC), together with all academic departments within within the institute, has been developing generic and course specific, and integrating professional knowledge, concepts, skills and dispositions into the attributes of our ideal graduate.
