The study aimed to look into the extent of Outcomes-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) implementation, explore the teaching and learning practices, and propose an OBTL framework for the Hotel and Resort Management program of Dusit Thani College. The study employed a mixed research method through online survey and focus group discussions. Descriptive statistics and thematic analysis were used to analyze the results. Results revealed that some of the OBTL practices are partially implemented in terms of teaching and learning activities. There is a need for a structured framework to institutionalize outcomes based education (OBE) where OBTL is anchored on. Furthermore, the proposed framework highlighted the need for information dissemination among stakeholders, constructive alignment, capacity building, and implementation and evaluation, along with continual improvement.
