Outcome-Based Education

It is actually astounding that after all these years of STCW and the IMO Model Courses referring to it, very few lecturers and instructors at Maritime training institutions have ever heard of “Outcome-Based Education” (OBE).

They are blissfully unaware about what it is, let alone that this is the preferred, prescribed method of instruction of the IMO. In short, we at training institutions around the world are supposed to run ALL our courses in OBE format. So why aren’t we?
