Curriculum development strategies and quality assurance method using AUN-QA have been fully utilised by Faculty of Music, Silpakorn University in 2021. In order to obtain benefits and evidence for capacity building among students from the strategies, an active learning project focusing on outcome-based education has been implemented. Student engagement approach was applied in teaching and learning activities. Constructive feedback from students and an instructor were continuously collected using Google classroom databased and Zoom meeting platform. Results from the project revealed that 20 students registered in Current Topics for Special Project course were able to identify their learning problems and learning objectives. Backward design process could enhance students to discover interesting topic for further study. When completing the course, the students gain insight into active learning styles and show 4.69 mean score for satisfaction on the course. Outcome-based education has been demonstrated as a practical concept. In addition, research-based education has been recognised as a tool for reorienting the course and further developing curriculum.
