Dr. Raul F. Muyong, ISAT U President and Dr. John Eric Juaneza, Associate Dean of the College of Education, attended the Technology for Teaching and Learning (TTL) Syllabi Writing Workshop conducted by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Center for Educational Innovation and Technology (SEAMEO INNOTECH) on July 27-29, 2016 at Diliman Quezon City.
The workshop is a part of the UNESCO-funded project entitled “Support Competency–Based Teacher Training Reforms to Facilitate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) – Pedagogy Integration.” The program aims to enhance the capacities of UNESCO Member States in the review and improvement of teacher competencies to effectively integrate Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in teaching and learning. The Philippines, Nepal and Uzbekistan have been chosen for the project’s pilot implementation in the Asia-Pacific region.
This year’s project activities are focused on reviewing and revising the Educational Technology (Ed Tech) courses offered at the pre-service level and writing the sample syllabi for Technology for Teaching and Learning (TTL) 1 and 2. TTL 1 and 2 will replace Educational Technology (Ed Tech) courses in the coming years.
Dr. Muyong was nominated by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Project Team as one of the writers who will craft sample syllabi to be used for Technology for Teaching and Learning (TTL) 1 and 2 in the entire country.
Dr. Muyong shared his expertise and served as TTL Syllabus Writer of the Educational Research Unit (ERU) under the Education Research Office and Innovative Office (ERIO) from June 27 to July 20. Dr. Juaneza, on the other hand, attended the “National Workshop to Finalize Sample Syllabi for Technology for Teaching and Learning (TTL) 1 and 2” on July 26-27 at SEAMO INNOTECH, Office, Quezon City.
