Outcome Based Education

              Nirmala College for Women has introduced Outcome Based Education (OBE) since 2019 in all its UG and PG programmes. In order to cater to the changing world scenario in terms of employability, acquisition of skills and upgrading oneself with the latest knowledge base in every field, OBE contributes towards students’ performance and skill development in being successful and enterprising in their personal and professional life.

Outcome Based Education, being learners’ centric, has a Vision, Mission, Programme Education Objectives (PEO), Programme Outcomes (PO) and Programme Specific Outcomes (PSO) for every programme. OBE designs curriculum and syllabi based on the outcomes anticipated from a programme. 

Mapping of PEOs with the Mission Statement  helps to ascertain the attainment of the Mission of the programme and relating PEOs with POs and PSOs will enable to know if the objectives framed are in alignment with the outcomes. Course Outcomes for every course is being formulated and mapped with POs and PSOs. Accordingly, the teaching learning and evaluation takes place based on the outcomes. 

The main  components of CIA are designed by the teaching faculty based on the nature and need of the paper so as to inculcate the skills needed for the respective course in realising the designated outcomes. Besides theory courses,  outcomes are framed for the practical courses too. 

Course attainment is ascertained for each individual unit of the course on completion of the course and corrective action in terms of changes in the course content, teaching methodology or the evaluation pattern is taken according to the requirement.  Internship, field trips, projects, etc.  are  few components which directly contribute to the OBE. At the end of such an OBE system of curriculum design, teaching strategies and evaluation pattern, a student can leave confidently well -equipped with desirable and efficient life skills.
