The Commission on Higher Education(CHED) welcomed 78 participants earlier today at Cebu Normal University(CNU), ten of whom were from Cebu Technological University (CTU) , for the training on teaching of the New General Education (GE) courses, specifically Purposive Communication, Art Appreciation and their Filipino counterparts.
Heeding the call of the Philippine government to meet K-12 demands, CTU makes summer for its faculty an intellectual immersion into best practices of bringing out the best in learners with New GE courses. Since April this year, faculty members have been sent to CHED-recognized delivering higher education institutions (DHEIs): University of San Carlos, San Jose Recoletos and Cebu Normal University.
Main campus and satellite campuses in Argao , Barili, Tuburan, and Daanbantayan have representatives to undergo training in the aforesaid GE courses that CNU is offering from May 8 through 26. Participants relive the experience of going back to school as assessments such as major exams are expected.
On the 26th, trainees get to receive either the certificate of participation or certificate of completion (for those who get the 80 percent passing rate). Successful second-generation trainees are mandated to render service in the upcoming CHED-sponsored seminars or trainings relative to the teaching of GE courses for faculty across the country.
Dr. Josefino Ronquillo of CHED 7 reiterated the need to cope with change as far as quality assurance in education is concerned. This is supported by CNU Vice President for Academic Affairs Bibiana T. Isok who stressed on the idea that New GE courses make way for optimum learning toward making students successful in their chosen careers.
CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr. has high hopes in the current trajectory with which the university is moving in terms of giving the best instruction to students, diversifying potentials to maximize satisfaction in the corporate world. UPO
