CTU Daanbantayan Campus recognized the four professors, namely, Dr. Nikkithea Beduya, Dr. Tsereyl Vedida, Dr. Tracy Mantos and Dr. Iris Gulbe for publishing their articles in SCOPUS-indexed journals.
The first published article aimed to gauge how the graduates and students who earned units from various degree programs of Cebu Technological University (CTU) Daanbantayan Campus Graduate School fared in the work arena. It also described the human capital afforded to them by the state university. Hence, it ascertained the employment status of the respondents, determined the extent of the effect of school-related factors on their employment, and assessed the extent of the contribution of the work values and skills afforded to them.
The second study employed a descriptive research design that generated an MTB-MLE training module for pre-service teachers based on the expressed needs of 14 purposively selected PSTs who demonstrated: (i) preference for the use of Cebuano-Visayan as the language of instruction, (ii) some degree of difficulty in using Cebuano-Visayan as evidenced by their code-switching characterized by retaining some English content words as well as affixing English verbs with Cebuano-Visayan morphemes; and (iii) their linguistic ability and background and learner accommodation as crucial influences affecting their LOI preference. Despite the language difficulty, PSTs found their Mother Tongue Based teaching preference advantageous as it boosts confidence in classroom instruction, facilitate the learners’ comprehension and encourage their participation.
Dr. LesleKaren Penera, professor of CTU Danao Campus is their research collaborator.
The authors believe that publication is the reason for dissemination of unique exploratory studies to inform the public on the developments and innovations.-Nikkithea Beduya/ICPA Daanbantayan
