Interested parties are invited to the 2021 International Mother Language Conference and Festival, opening 21 February and running until 20 March 2021. The UP Mindanao Department of Social Sciences is one of the assisting institutions. The 2021 International Mother Language Conference and Festival (#IMLCF21) takes on the challenges in the implementation of inclusive language education policy and examines the roles that institutions and stakeholders play in innovating and insulating solutions to ensure sustainable program implementation. The Covid-19 pandemic magnifies the problems affecting education systems across societies regardless of economic and political status. The systematic exclusion imposed upon societies coping with perennial economic challenges is heightened by the ongoing global health emergency. But while public policymaking is on a survival mode, continuity remains an imperative in rebuilding our systems and reimagining learning communities. This pandemic offers important lessons in rebuilding the need for diversity, engaged inclusion, and social equity. The Conference is a platform for researchers and practitioners of inclusionary multilingual, multicultural education to share their findings, insights and recommendations with policymakers, administrators and advocates in improving the quality of education. All information regarding the conference are available in the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/motherlanguageconference

Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in News

2020 121620 radyo iskolaqr 2A two-part radio documentary series on Filipino realities during the Coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic will be aired on 16 and 18 December 2020 at 4:00 PM via https://mixlr.com/radyo_iskolar. The radio documentaries are produced by BA Communication and Media Arts (BACMA) students in the MEDA 111: Audio Media Communication I (Informative) class. 

The radio documentaries tell six stories of different people during the pandemic. The first set of radio documentaries are: “Ang Kalbaryo ng Ordinaryo,” “Life at Home in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic,” and “Pagtuong Digital: Natad sa Siyensya.” The second set is, “Pagkat-on: Estado ng mga Estudyante sa Makabagong Pamamaraan ng Pag-aaral sa Kasagsagan ng Pandemya,” “Paano na si Mama?” and “Tao Po! Tao Po.”

The goals of the radio documentaries are to share the stories of ordinary people in the time of the pandemic. It aims to add narratives to the ongoing discourse on COVID-19, particularly for the government and private sectors to help come up with better solutions in addressing the pandemic. The project is part of the Academic Program Improvement (API) project entitled, "COVID-19 Communication Awareness and Public Service." 

Radyo Iskolar is an online campus radio initiated by the BACMA program and managed by Instructor Merle Dawn Comidoy-Acol. The official Facebook page of Radyo Iskolar is https://www.facebook.com/radyo1skolar/?ref=page_internal.

The radio program is broadcast on Mixlr, an audio streaming platform for sharing live audio online. The Radyo Iskolar station manager Ms. Comidoy-Acol extended her thanks to all who listened to the Radyo Iskolar radio programs from the test broadcast in July 2020 and during the airings in October-November. “It was challenging to operate given our remote learning setup. The students were working from their homes,” she said. “Even without equipment and set-up for professional audio recordings, Radyo Iskolar managed to produce weekly content such as “Balitang Iskolar” (radio news program), “Gabay Tambayan” (radio talk show), “Replay 2K” (music radio show), “Iskoming Out” (special program on the LGBTQIA++), and “Taralets” (music radio show). Programs that are timely and relevant for the UP Mindanao community and its audience. We hope to reach more listeners in the upcoming semesters and collaborate with various departments, colleges, and offices in the university,” she said.

Associate Professor Teody Boylie "Bong" Perez of the Department of Humanities is expediting his Art Donation Project, "Indigent Lives: A Permanent Display of Art Prints," with his recent turnover of framed art prints to serve as permanent exhibits in organizations with wide public access in Davao City. 

Associate Professor Teody Boylie "Bong" Perez turned over art prints for display to UP Mindanao and the University Library on 24 November 2020. This is part of his "Indigent Lives: A Permanent Display of Art Prints" Art Donation Project supported by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Chancellor Larry Digal and Librarian Merlyn Castañeros received the donations. Vice-Chancellor Karen Cayamanda and Ms. Carol Balgos signed as witnesses to the deed of donation.

In recent weeks, Prof. Perez turned over donations of art prints for display to Malayan Colleges Mindanao, the DOST-Region XI, the Philippine Science High School-Southern Mindanao Campus, the Davao City Special School, and the new Davao City Library.

An art print is a high-quality reproduction of an original artwork intended for display in public spaces.

Prof. Perez’s lifelike paintings depicting indigents' conditions have been widely acclaimed, for which Davao City awarded him its highest recognition as a Datu Bago awardee in 2016.

The 2020 NCCA Competitive Grants Program approved its support for the project, which, in their evaluation, "contributes significantly to the Filipino’s cultural legacy." Prof. Perez's project also aligns with the NCCA vision of "A Filipino people with a strong sense of nationhood and deep respect for cultural diversity" and "promoting Philippine culture and values towards Bayanihan."
