Abstract
This qualitative/ theoreticalpaper presents the Communicative Approach to Outcomes-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL). The approach was based on the analysis of Berlo’s Communication Model and its implication to Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) and on the Communication Theories such as Agenda-Setting, Gatekeeping and Medium. Combining the elements of the communication model and the concepts in the selected theories, the researchers were able to come up with a Communicative Approach to OBTL which intends to explain communication as its context. The approach has four components namely; the source as gatekeepers, message as agenda, channel as message and receivers as gatekeepers. It also brings to the fore the roles of teachers in OBTL as gatekeepers and agenda setters.
