Outcomes-Based Education Specialist

Before You Apply

Peace Corps Response positions are open to returned Volunteers or U.S. citizens with significant professional and technical experience.

Project Description

An Outcome-Based Education Specialist with a master’s degree in education and at least 2 years of experience in university teaching, curriculum development, and outcomes-based education is needed to support the progression of the academic programs of Southern Leyte State University in the Philippines. Higher education institutions in the Philippines have been mandated to provide Outcomes-Based Education (OBE), and although there were initiatives to understand, embrace and institutionalize OBE, there is still a need to constant support and updates for the different academic programs to become locally responsive but globally competitive. In order to do that, SLSU needs technical support from a PCRV to review its current programs and train faculty members and staff to be trainers of Outcomes-Based Education.

The Outcome-Based Education Specialist will work closely with the campus deans, associate deans, college deans, department heads and program chairpersons in all the campuses of the university to conduct Trainer's Trainings on Outcomes-Based Education for each campus and develop Outcome Based Instructional Materials including model syllabi. The Response Volunteer will also engage in consultation dialogues/meetings with key university officials, faculty and students and act as a resource person and guest lecturer in school academic activities. The main goal of the assignment is to build the capacity of university staff and assist the university to embed in all its academic practices the framework of OBE.
