Abstract

This paper is in preparation for the research that I will be conducting as a PhD Candidate at the Ontario Institute For Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto entitled “Implementation of Outcomes-Based Education at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) University: An Action Research Study of an Interdisciplinary Design Course” under the supervision of Professor Katharine Janzen. In this discussion, I intend to first establish the background, the context and the purpose of my research. Then I review the principles of outcomes-based education with an emphasis on design pedagogy. Finally, I will lay the ground for the action research study that I intend to conduct in an interdisciplinary design course that I teach at OCAD University (OCAD U) through the identification of the theoretical framework, research questions and research methodology of my study as well as its practical application and future contribution to the field of study.
