One hundred faculty members coming from the different campuses of Iloilo Science and Technology University (ISAT U) participated in a two-day seminar workshop on Outcomes- Based Education (OBE) conducted on June 4 to 5, 2015.
The seminar-workshop aimed to let the faculty shift from an Input Based Education to an OBE, come up with a uniform OBE syllabus, develop an OBE program, and implement the program in the institution.
Dr. Purita P. Bilbao, former Dean of the College of Education (COE) of West Visayas State University (WVSU) and a member of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Technical Panel for Teacher Education, served as the first resource speaker. She lectured on OBE program and its benefits to the institution.
The participants were grouped according to campuses during the workshops on creating the OBE course syllabus and visualizing their ideal university graduates. The workshop was followed by the participants' presentations of their outputs.
The second resource person, Dr. Nenie M. Galedo, Supervisor for Teacher Education, CHED Region Office VI, discussed Typology and Outcomes-Based Quality Assurance.
“This seminar-workshop is in response to the advocacy of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on OBE. The participants are expected to reecho what they have learned to the faculty of the different colleges and campuses to be facilitated by the campus administrators and deans,” said Dr. Manuel A. Sanchez, Jr., Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA), in his speech.
The workshop facilitators were Josie J. Calasagsag, Charisse Jane S. Gustilo, Joanne C. Pongan, Eva C. Sonza and Ma. April Rose B. Tibudan.
