This paper examined aspects of quality assurance in association with the review of curriculum. The review was premised on outcome based education. The study further postulated on how blended learning may be developed from the outputs of the reviewed curricular. The first part of the paper discussed the various forms of outcome-based education, components of the codes of good practice in academic quality assurance and features of blended learning. The second part of the paper examined ways in which the transformative effects of outcome-based education may be applied to (re)align course components and programme delivery to complement blended learning strategies that are congruent with quality assurance practices in the virtual domain. A User-Learner Centred Design model was created to advocate for the systematic training of lecturers as instructional designers in outcome based blended learning.
