Mapúa boosts digital transformation through Outcome-Based Education (OBE) Training

Mapúa University continues to champion advanced, digital-driven education by upskilling and equipping its faculty and academic staff with up-to-date fundamentals and applications in digital education. This effort is in relation to transforming Mapúa into a digital, research-driven, outcomes-based, international domain.

Held last November 24, 2022, faculty and staff of the School of Health Sciences and ETY School of Business and Management underwent an Outcome-Based Education (OBE) Training and Seminar, led by Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).

The seminar will distinguish outcome-based education system from the traditional systems and processes of education, as well as discuss the alignments of OBE framework on digital education.

"The training is important because we wanted to make sure that everyone will be more than ready to take on the ASEAN University Network (AUN) accreditation by further aligning their individual practices as teachers and support staff into the OBE framework that we are adopting in the University," said Dr. Edward Jay M. Quinto, the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning (OBE) in discussing the importance of the training for Mapúa.

In line with the Mapúa’s initiative to become a world-class digital university, Dr. Quinto discussed the foundations of the OBE and Engr. Ericson D. Dimaunahan, Director of CTL shared his insights in implementing OBE in online teaching and learning contexts.

Aside from being accredited by AUN, the seminar helped strengthen the internationalization of Mapúa’s academic programs. AUN is an international organization that facilitates cooperations to strengthen the ASEAN member states’ quality and networks for higher education. It assures students that digital education in the University is at par with international standards.

The training further catapults the faculty in providing quality education to students, highlighting Mapúa’s excellence as a leading digital university.
