Session 1

Title: Outcomes-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) and Assessment @ HKBU
Facilitators: CHTL Colleagues
Abstract: HKBU is renowned for its dedication in providing a holistic education experience for its students. This is in line with university’s goal of becoming the region’s premier liberal arts university. With the full adoption of Outcomes-based Teaching and Learning (OBTL), teaching and learning at HKBU emphasises the creation of a more learning-centered environment, characterised with the use of engaging pedagogies to encourage students’ active participation, and the provision of timely feedback in motivating them to study at a high standard. Empirical studies informed us that “assessment drives student learning”. Hence the use of engaging teaching and learning activities (TLAs) coupled with appropriate formative and summative assessment methods (AMs) constructively aligned to the learning outcomes is the underlying principle of OBTL which must be enacted within and outside the classroom to help students achieve the learning outcomes.

This Session primarily aims to (1) explain the teaching and learning culture of HKBU and the implementation process of OBTL, (2) introduce various pedagogical and assessment options, (3) explain the importance of Criterion-Referenced Assessment (CRA) approach in OBTL, and (4) demonstrate the use of rubrics to evaluate student works.
