The Language of OBE Reveals Its Limitations.
Schwarz, Gretchen
Educational Leadership, v52 n1 p87-88 Sep 1994
Outcome-based education (OBE) advocates use mechanistic terminology suggestive of the business world, not organic words embodying reflection, serendipity, and discovery. With OBE, outside experts prescribe what is best for students and teachers, who remain essentially voiceless. Teaching is defined in technical dimensions. Such linear, rationalistic language encourages neither debate nor spontaneity. (MLH)
