Written by Rene Estremera on . Posted in Madayaw News

THE 15th DEVELOPMENT POLICY MONTH will be celebrated in September 2017. The theme, "Pagpapatibay ng Desentralisasyon Tungo sa Kaunlarang Panrehiyon" / "Strengthening Decentralization for Regional Development". This theme is chosen in view of the ongoing discourse on Federalism, and to highlight the need for in-depth reflection and analyses to encompass the bigger umbrella of decentralization reforms. The month-long celebration hopes to emphasize to our policymakers the importance of critical thinking and the formulation of appropriate policy interventions to advance development in the regions.

Inclusion Through Sports, 2017

Written by Rene Estremera on . Posted in Madayaw News

INSTRUCTOR ALBERT FRANCIS REGINALD T. RAMOS (Dept. of Human Kinetics) was in Nairobi, Republic of Kenya on 4-11 July 2017 for the Inclusion Through Sports (ITS) training program. Upon his return, he presented Chancellor Sylvia Concepcion with the ITS handbook. (See the photo here)

ITS is organized by the Italian non-government organization Mine Vaganti for sports coaches and youth workers. ITS uses sport as a form of non-formal education to improve skills and competencies of young people and to enhance their social inclusion.

A number of simple games--called "methodologies"--have been devised for these objectives. Mr. Ramos helped create the methodology "Tic-Tac-Shuttle"--similar to the game of tic-tac-toe but played in an open space. Another methodology he co-created is "Pac-man", wherein players move along lines on the ground--similar to the "Pac-man" computer game--to change direction with every encounter, which promotes strategic thinking and a sense of fun.

ITS methodologies are being adopted in Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Kenya, Cameroon, Senegal, Guatemala, Peru, Argentina, China/Hong Kong, India, and the Philippines.

Mr. Ramos' participation in ITS 2017 is a continuation of his involvement in the July 2016 ITS training in Senegal. He will join the delegation in the presentation of the ITS to co-funders, the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, in Sofia, Bulgaria on September 28-30.

Blended Learning, e-Learning, 2017

Written by Rene Estremera on . Posted in Madayaw News

A Capability-Building Seminar-Workshop on Blended Learning and e-Learning was held on August 7-9 in UP Mindanao. Dr. Patricia Arinto and Dr. Sheila Bonito, both of the UP Open University, served as resource persons.

Blended Learning is a teaching approach that combines face-to-face class meetings with customized on-line activity (usually via the internet). These may use  open access web pages, e-books, slides, videos, e-mails, chats, video-conferencing, search-engines, virtual worlds, simulation,  blogs, and multi-media authoring tools that are free of charge.
   
The Flipped Classroom is a popular form of Blended Learning where homework is done in advance. Students absorb readings or audio-visual materials beforehand, in preparation for coming to class. Class meetings discard the lectures and proceed directly into class work involving applied-learning activities and immediate feedback from the instructor.

The workshop session produced models of Flipped Classrooms, showing the mix of activities from the traditional classroom and the online resources.

These models were for modules in swimming, creative writing, probability theory, computer algorithms, communication, biology, food technology, physics, botany, and architecture.

The succeeding workshop sessions were on selecting online learning resources, designing learning activities, and designing an assessment plan.

The workshop was organized by Interactive Learning Center-Learning Resource Center and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. (See photos here https://www.facebook.com/UPMindanao/posts/1651851604887434)
