OBTL (With Bloom's Taxonomy)

As its name suggests, OBTL starts with clearly stating, not what the teacher is going to teach, but what the outcome of that teaching is intended to be in the form of a statement of what the learner is supposed to be able to do and at what standard: the Intended Learning Outcome (ILO).

There is also an educational domain to ensure effective learning which is widely known as BLOOM'S TAXONOMY. The major idea of the taxonomy is that what educators want students to know (encompassed in statements of educational objectives) can be arranged in a hierarchy from less to more complex. The levels are understood to be successive, so that one level must be mastered before the next level can be reached.

Getting introduced with the idea and knowledge about OBTL, I am focusing my learning, teaching, assessing and giving feedback to be accomplished with OBTL method of learning. While making the lesson/course plan I found it very easy and effective to match the objectives with the outcomes and activities.

According to Bloom's Taxonomy there are also four Knowledge Dimensions perpendicularly merged with the six levels of taxonomy to ensure the hierarchical development of learners: Factual, Conceptual, Procedural and Meta-cognitive Knowledge. To make the questions and assessment of the learners effective Bloom's Taxonomy suggests some verbs which are known and Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs.
