Abstract: Outcome Based Education (OBE) is now a days becoming a mandate in almost all higher educational institutions across the country as it turned out to be an authorized signatory member of Washington Accord (WA) in 2014 through the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). The fundamental concept of outcome-based education is to ensure continuous improvement at all levels of teaching – learning – assessment process. Though there are several programmes were organized to build the competency of OBE, the present traces of implementation of OBE in educational institutions clearly demonstrate the lack of understanding the real implementation of OBE and strictly it is a serious concern. Even these traces are observed in the programs, which are accredited. In the present paper, an attempt has been made to enable the stakeholders to truly understand some of the basic elements of OBE, which will really help them to deploy the philosophy of OBE in the way it is expected for continuous improvement.
Keywords: Outcome based education; curriculum design.
