Abstract—The biology experiment course is an essential introductory and compulsory course for biology majors in higher education. With the rapid development of biology research, improving the quality of classroom teaching and stimulating students’  innovative and practical abilities is a critical issue that needs to be solved in biology  experiment course. This article analyzes the problems in biology experiment course, summarizes experimental teaching experience, and designs teaching based on student learning outcomes, exploring innovative reform plans for course teaching. Adopting problem-based and project-based learning  with the concept of Outcome-Based Education, we will attempt to reform the “Biology”  curriculum and construct a student-centered and result-oriented teaching model. It is conducive to stimulating students’  interest in learning, mobilizing their active participation in classroom learning, effectively improving their learning ability and sense of achievement, promoting the overall quality of students, and thus achieving the goal of improving the quality of biology teaching, laying a solid foundation for talent cultivation. 
Keywords—Outcome-Based Education (OBE), biology experiment, Problem-Based Learning and Project-Based Learning (PBL), course teaching
