IM LECTURERS ATTEND TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS SEMINAR-WORKSHOP
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
William Arthur Ward (one of America's most quoted writers of inspirational maxims.)
In line with the University’s commitment in further developing its faculty towards academic excellence, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (OVCAA) of VCAA Corazon L. Abansi organized and held a teaching effectiveness seminar-workshop for new faculty members and lecturers on 24 October 2016 at the Sarmiento Hall, UP Baguio. Of the 15 participants who attended the seminar-workshop, 6 were Lecturers in the Master of Management and BS Management Economics Programs at the Institute of Management. Dr. Rosario Alonzo, Dean of the College of Education of UP Diliman and former faculty of UP Baguio was the resource person.
In the seminar-workshop, the participants were reminded of their lead roles and responsibilities as teachers in preparing the crème de la crème, the finest students of the country, as future leaders and trail blazers in their respective fields. During the one-day seminar-workshop, the principles of Outcome-Based Education were thoroughly explained. This educational theory basically determines what the students can do at the end of the course, and teachers are supposed to develop the skills of the students so they may be able to cope with the challenges of the 21st century.
The participants from the Institute of Management were: Fran Moredo (Special Topic in Management), Mita Angela Dimalanta (Marketing Management and Strategic Management), Kezia Teresa Tabago (Financial and Management Accounting, and Business Finance), Bernadette Velasquez (Managerial Accounting), Roberto Goce (Operations Management, Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics) and Maria Buena Victoria Tenefrancia (Human Resources Management).
The clear message from the seminar-workshop was to set higher standards of learning, the use of more innovative ways and methods of teaching, more discriminating performance assessments and more inspiration. (Maria Buena Victoria Tenefrancia)
