Abstract

<b>Strategieë vir die implementering van uitkomsgebaseerde onderwys by die Technikon Vrystaat</b> <br>Die besluit van die SA Kwalifikasie-owerheid dat alle kwalifikasies op 'n interim basis - in uitkomsgebaseerde formaat - op die Nasionale Kwalifikasie Raamwerk geregistreer moet wees teen 2000 het alle hoëronderwysinstellings gedwing om erns te maak met dié benadering tot onderrig en leer. 'n Navorsingsprojek oor die implementering van uitkomsgebaseerde onderwys (UGO) gedurende 1999-2001 aan die technikon het verdere steun aan die benadering verleen (CTM 2001). In die artikel word die belangrikste strategieë wat die Technikon Vrystaat (TVS) gevolg het om die teoretiese raamwerk van UGO binne die nasionale hoëronderwyskonteks te implementeer, bespreek. Die implikasies van die implementering word ook uitgespel. Technikons is goed geposisioneer om UGO te implementeer, omdat die teoretiese vertrekpunte van die benadering en die grondslae van UGO nie vreemd is aan die tradisionele onderwysfilosofie van die instellings nie.

The decision of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) that all qualifications should be registered in outcomes-based education (OBE) format on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) by 2000 forced all higher education institutions to take this approach to teaching and learning seriously. A research project on the implementation of OBE at technikons in 1999-2001 provided further reinforcement (CTM 2001). In this article the most important strategies used by the Technikon Free State (TFS) to implement the theoretical framework of OBE within the national higher education context are discussed. The implications of implementing OBE are also highlighted. Technikons are well-positioned to implement OBE, since the basic tenets of its theory and practice are similar to their traditional teaching philosophy.
