Graduate School Dean Dr. Anabella B. Tulin echoed and talked about these topics to more than 70 participants composed of VSU faculty. She emphasized that OBE is what students can actually do with what they know and have learned. This, according to the dean, is the tangible application of what has been learned in a classroom.

College of Education Secretary Dr. Marilyn N. Manaig echoed the topics on Triadic Lenses of Outcome-Based Education including: Theory, Practices & Administration, and the OBE in K to 12: Impetus for Continuous Improvement and Ability, originally discussed by Dr. Jonathan V. Macayan and Dr. Warren A. Ramos, respectively.
