Outcome based course design and creating suitable instruction methodology to enhance learning effectiveness are important both in academic and corporate learning environments. One of the major challenges in our technical training is to impart necessary skills and knowledge in short span of time (thirteen weeks). Moreover, the new hires recruited for entry level jobs are from different geographic, educational background and hence creating such an active learning environment for their knowledge construction is another interesting aspect. Context based visual learning creates enough interest among the participants towards grasping of the concepts and enhance their knowledge construction and transferable skills. The primary focus of this work is to impart the knowledge and skills specific to java technology, where in, it requires bringing change in mindset of the participants from procedural programming to visualization of the object as concept. The present work aims at identifying program level learning outcomes and synthesizing them to course level outcomes, thereby using real-time examples to visualize the concept. We present the approach and the empirical results in terms of assessments and course feedback. These results indicate that the participants are engaged to a greater extent and are able to perform well in the practical implementation of concepts that are learned through concept visualization. This approach found to be useful especially to teach vast set of topics in short duration with learning effectiveness.
