Training Workshop on Enabling Policies, Programs and best Practices in Research and Publication in Compliance to CHED’s Typology in Higher Education
Office of the University President Liceo de Cagayan University
MESSAGE Liceo de Cagayan University prides itself in continually pushing its research performance evidenced by the institutionalization of its four Asian Journals, one of which, the Asian Journal of Biodiversity, is Thomson Reuter indexed and JAS accredited (Category A), while the other journals – Liceo Journal of Higher Education and Asian Journals of Governance and Management and Health - are likewise refereed and published for international distribution. Evidencing further the university’s commitment to advancing excellence in research is its application for ISO certification for its research and publication office to institutionalize international standards in its operations. And Liceo de Cagayan University is proud to earn the distinction as the first and only academic research office in the country to obtain ISO certification. The accreditation processes, such as that of the PACOCOA, CHED’s IQUAME and ISO, serve as drivers for Liceo de Cagayan University to achieve such milestones in research. The introduction of CHED’s typology in higher education is likewise viewed as new driver that will further bolster the university’s resolve to stay on course toward research excellence. In spite of our accomplishments in research, this development in higher education has prompted us to reassess the extent of our research performance. In the context of CHED’s typology, will we measure up in the area of research vis-à-vis faculty engagement in research? This has now become a pressing question that all HEIs across the country should ponder on. This development in higher education necessitates reassessment of our research capabilities and recalibration of our enabling mechanisms to ensure compliance with the new requirements of CHED. It cannot be denied that this latest development in higher education has drawn mixed reactions from and has brought worries to many HEIs across the country. This new typology may put much pressure on us; however, on a positive note, it is a welcome development that may serve as impetus for HEIs to step up efforts to strengthen their research capability. Much can and has to be done to raise another notch the quality of higher education particularly in the field of research. Thus, this conference is convened to give HEI’s a venue for intellectual exchanges of best practices in research and publication hoped to help us reengineer our efforts for us not just to parallel the requirements of the Commission but even to exceed them, thereby bringing us to a height that puts us on a par with the rated universities of the neighbouring regions. For convening this very timely conference, credit goes to the Philippine Association of Institutions for Research especially to its founding president, Dr. Genaro V. Japos.

Philippine Association of Institutions for Research (PAIR)
MESSAGE Welcome to Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines! The officers of the Philippine Association of Institutions for Research are happy you have chosen to attend the Conference and Training Workshop on Enabling Policies, Programs and Best Practices in Research and Publication in Compliance to CHED’s Typology in Higher Education at the Pearlmont Inn, Limketkai Drive, Cagayan de Oro City. PAIR leads in the promotion of quality research and publication that meet international standards. The judgment of the Philippines’ competitiveness in the world rankings is partly gauged by the strength of R and D measured in terms of publications in refereed journals, patents, copyrights and trademarks. We organized this conference and training workshop to capacitate research institutions and researchers in meeting the requirements of the typology evaluation. Due to poor performance in research and publications, a university can be downgraded to institute or college. Just how do our Universities meet the standards? The answers are provided in three days as we share best practices and learn new technologies to motivate teachers to do research and to give a sense of urgency to our top management to make research a centerpiece of their administration. This defines the legacy our University Presidents’ leave to us in the academe. We have invited AJA Registrars Inc., Mr Paul B. Bagatsing, General Manager and Mr. Kevin Castillon, Lead Auditor to assist us in preparing our schools to get ISO Certification. We cannot have higher standards of research and publication if we do not have international standards in doing work. The ISO Certification of PAIR is a good start for universities and research organizations to model their Quality Management System. PAIR is committed to assist schools and research centers to get ISO certification. In particular, we have invited Dr. Roberto N. Padua as our Keynote Speaker to utilize the richness of his experience and expertise in research to help our schools. Dr. Padua is a quintessential Filipino research leader who has dedicated a lifetime promoting research in this country. We have also invited representatives of the University of the PhilippinesCebu, Central Mindanao University, Mindanao University of Science and Technology, Liceo de Cagayan University and the University of Mindanao; to share their best practices in research to cross pollinate our research cultures. Dr. Mariano M. Lerin, CPA, President of the Liceo de Cagayan University has constantly nourished us with his exemplary leadership and effective research publications. The recent inclusion of the Asian Journal of Biodiversity to Thomson Reuters Journals Masterlist is a proof of his productive leadership. The paper presentations on best practices and multidisciplinary research complemented by the awards for Outstanding Filipino Researchers provide unique experiences and insights to make this event truly an event to remember that is worth our time, effort and money. We also invite you to experience the beautiful places in Cagayan de Oro. In particular, try visiting Centrio, an Ayala Mall which, opened just last November 9. The nature-decked interiors and the shops will give you unique green memories. Once again, welcome and enjoy your stay.

Republic of the Philippines Office of the President COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION Region X 9000 Cagayan de Oro City
MESSAGE At the outset , in behalf of the Commission on Higher Education family, we would like to congratulate PAIR under the visionary leadership of Dr. Genaro V. Japos, President, for another “feather in its cap” through the conduct of this “National Training Workshop on Enabling Policies, Programs and Best Practices in Research and Publication in Compliance to CHED’s typology in Higher Education.” This is without mentioning the breakthrough PAIR made in holding the “International Conference on Social Sciences, Health and Environment 2012” last September 24-26, 2012 at JW Marriott Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand, a frist for the organization. This training workshop is, indeed, timely and relevant for CHED is about to come out with its CHED Memorandum Order on “POLICY-STANDARD TO ENHANCE QUALITY ASSURANCE (QA) IN PHILIPPINE HIGHER EDUCATION THROUGH AN OUTCOMES-BASED AND TYPOLOGY BASED QA”. As of now, the CMO is still at its draft level. This is one of the educational reforms that CHED is currently implementing. Higher education is, basically, making a shift from teacher-centered to a learner-centered paradigm within a lifelong learning framework. Outcomes-based education/learning competency-based education or “obe” becomes the direction where higher education is taking. It implies that the best way to learn is to first determine what needs to be achieved. Once the desired results or ‘exit outcome’ have been determined, the strategies, processes, techniques and means are put in place to achieve the predetermined goals. In essence, it is working-backwards with students as the centre of the learning-teaching milieu. The adoption of “obe” in higher education has already started with Engineering, but later on it will permeate through all the disciplines. Another paradigm shift that higher education is taking, is the typology based quality assurance. There are two kinds of typologies in this system: Horizontal Typology which is based on the functional differentiation of HEIs vis-avis their service to the nation, and Vertical Typology that is based on quality measures within each horizontal type. In this typology, there are three kinds of HEIs: Professional Institutions, Colleges, and Universities. Each of them has each own unique contribution to nation building. So we could not say that one is better than the other. They are all equals. Vertical typology refers to the classification of HEIs according to the results from both program and institutional quality outcomes: a) Autonomous HEIs (by Evaluation), b)Deregulated HEIs (by Evaluation), an d c) Regulated HEIs. We might ask ourselves, where is research in all of these educational reforms? Research is one of the major criteria of being classified in both typologies. I would not go into details regarding the dynamics of research vis-a-vis outcomes-based and typology based quality assurance, for I might be preempting the areas you would touch during your training workshop. Suffice it to say that at all times research plays a very critical role in carrying out successfully educational reforms. And all of us here being research advocates are the ones that could make it happen. As what Barack Obama, the newly re-elected President of the United States of America has said: “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is , is that when we succeed, we succeed not only because of our own individual initiative, but also because we do things together.” Again, CONGRATULATIONS and MABUHAY KAYONG LAHAT!

Keynote Speech Typology-Based Qa For Philippine Higher Education Institutions: Through The Fabric Of Instruction, Research And Extension Functions Of Hei’s Roberto N. Padua , Ph.D. (Former CHED Commissioner)
Abstract - To CHED’s credit, the proposed two-dimensional approach to Quality Assurance in higher education is the first comprehensive, detailed and well-studied document for ensuring quality in Philippine higher education. The paper attempts to simplify the conceptual presentation of the two-dimensional (horizontal and vertical typologies) quality assurance space of HEIs to better appreciate the beauty and logic of the approach. The simplification highlights the shift from pure quality control (QC) perspective to a more comprehensive quality assurance (QA) view of managing quality in higher education. Underlying the QA system is the radical shift towards Competency-Based curriculum for all higher education programs. The system is shown to lead to four(4) distinctive outcomes in Philippine higher education: (1.) clarification of roles of Universities, Colleges and Professional Institutes, (2.) motivation to gain prestige and status through the vertical typologies (regulated, deregulated and autonomous), (3.) production of competent graduates, and (4.) efficient and effective higher education system that can globally compete. The paper ends with some Technical, Administrative, Political and Economic challenges that the new system may encounter. Keywords - quality control, quality assurance, higher education, typology INTRODUCTION A recent CHED order entitled: “Policy standard to enhance quality assurance in Philippine higher education through an outcomes-based and typology-based Quality Assurance” has made some universities and colleges happy while leaving the majority of the higher education institutions confused about how exactly they will be evaluated by the Commission. In this lecture, we will attempt to simplify the contents of this document in a manner that will be understandable to a non-specialist in quality assurance. W. Deming (1975), the acknowledged world expert on quality control and assurance once said :” while the concepts of quality control and quality assurance are, in theory, easy to understand particularly for those with statistical background, their implementation is , at best, a messy business”. We shall gloss over the technical details of the concept of quality assurance espoused by CHED in order to make it more understandable and also so that we can better appreciate the beauty and logic of this new paradigm. From QC to QA The main thesis of the CHED order concerns the shift from Quality Control (QC) to Quality Assurance(QA) in higher education. In the past, when there were only a few hundred higher education institutions in the country,
quality control was deemed tenable and appropriate. The task of regulating, say, 50 colleges and universities in the country is certainly feasible but it becomes an impossible undertaking when over 2000 colleges and universities are involved. CHED would have to spend 100% of its time running after errant schools and will not be able to do anything else to improve the quality of higher education in the country. CHED will be too busy putting out fires in all directions if it continues to emphasize quality control. The first batch of CHED Commissioners had a motto: “To work hard to make CHED unnecessary in the next 20 years”. Indeed, if quality is assured in the country’s higher education system, then the system takes a life of its own and CHED will no longer be a necessary external government agency intervening in the system’s operations. This is precisely where we are heading – each higher education institution playing specific roles in the system and doing an excellent job at producing quality graduates and world-class research. Thus, the CHED order is NOT another regulation designed to make our lives miserable but is a LIBERATING instrument to develop independent, robust and autonomous higher education institutions in the Philippines. The Nebulous Concept of “Quality” Everyone talks about “quality” yet no one has ever defined precisely what this concept means in the context of higher education. It is extremely important that we agree on a definition of this concept prior to implementing any form of quality control or quality assurance measures in the system. According to Section 6 of the CHED Order, “Quality is the alignment and consistency of the learning environment with the institution’s vision, mission, and goals demonstrated by exceptional learning and service outcomes and the development of a culture of quality (sic)”. Let us, for the moment, forgive this circular definition and concentrate on its implications instead. First, the notion of quality involves “fitness for purpose” when we enforce alignment of the learning environment with the institution’s vision, mission, and goals. This is the notion held by international and local accrediting bodies when they accredit your programs and systems. Second, quality for CHED also means “exceptional” in the sense that certain standards are established to which the institutions conform to and also exceed such standards. The standards are phrased in terms of comparability with criteria and ratings (metrics). Third, CHED desires to develop a culture of quality in Philippine higher education institutions which now constitutes the transformational dimension of CHED’s notion of quality. The third implication is not necessarily part of CHED’s definition of quality but is, instead, a description of a “Quality-Assured” higher education system. Ergo, CHED’s notion of quality involves only the first and second implications: “fitness for purpose” and “exceptional”. Visualizing the Quality Assurance Space We can get a better handle on CHED’s paradigm for quality assurance if we are able to visualize the space where our higher education institutions stand in relation to “fitness for purpose” and “exceptional”. Article V of the CHED order talks about a “Horizontal Typology of HEIs for QA”. This is the “fitness for purpose “ axis. With the aid of Rene Descartes’ Cartesian plane, we can plot the institutions on the horizontal axis and label them as : Professional Institutions, Colleges and Universities. A professional institution has a different purpose in higher education from colleges and from universities. Each category, therefore, represents a different purpose in the scheme of things in higher education.
Article VII of the CHED order, next , talks about a “Vertical Typology for HEIs for QA”. This the “exceptional” axis. Once again, we plot the higher education institutions on a vertical axis and label them as : Regulated, De-regulated and Autonomous. Each category consists of higher education institutions that comply with certain standards set by CHED (and spelled out in the document).
We now plot the Cartesian coordinate system consisting of the Horizontal (“Fitness for Purpose”) axis and the Vertical (“Exceptional”) axis to visualize the system that CHED is envisioning in the document:
Figure 1: CHED’s QA Space
The QA space defines 9 possible “states of being” for the higher education institutions, namely: (1.) Professional-Regulated, (2.) Professional-Deregulated, (3.) Professional-Autonomous, (4.) College-Regulated, (5.) College-Deregulated, (6.) College-Autonomous, (7.) University-Regulated, (8.) University-Deregulated, and (9.) University-Autonomous. A higher education institution, essentially, defines its own niche in the lattice of the Quality-Assurance space. Do you want to stay as a Regulated Professional Institution? Do you wish to become an Autonomous University? These are decisions that public and private higher education institutions have to make because movement from one state space to the next implies considerable investment. Fitness for Purpose: Implications to Higher Education Institutions Professional Institutions exist to provide educational experiences to develop technical knowledge and skills at the undergraduate and graduate levels leading to professional practice (practitioners’ degrees). Professional
institutions develop adults who will have the practical and technical know-how to staff the various professional sectors that are required to sustain the economic and social development of the country and the world , as well as to contribute to innovation in their respective areas. Examples: Engineering, Medicine, Law, IT, Management, Teacher Education, Agriculture and Fisheries and Maritime Education. An HEI is considered a Professional Institution if: • At least 60% of the academic degree programs are in the professional areas (like the ones mentioned above) and 70% of the enrolment are in these areas too. • At least 50% of the faculty are full time and permanent having relevant degrees or professional experience. In the event that the PI has graduate degrees, then all faculty teaching in these graduate courses must hold the appropriate master’s or doctoral degrees; • It has sustained program linkages with the industries, professional groups and organizations. • Outreach programs that promote professional practice. Next, CHED defines Colleges (to distinguish them from Professional Institutions) as those institutions which develop adults with the thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, communication, technical and social skills to participate in various types of employment, development activities, and public discourses. This definition IS NOT MEANT TO imply that the Professional Institutions do not develop these skills as well. In order to avoid this misinterpretation, we provide some examples (which is not an exhaustive list ): Natural and Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, Language and Letters and other courses traditionally labelled “Liberal Arts”. An institution qualifies as a College if: • At least 70% of the undergraduate programs are in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (develops thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, communication, technical and social skills); • Same faculty requirements as in the Professional Institutions; • Adequate library and laboratory resources; • Outreach programs that promote contextualization of knowledge within actual social and human experiences. Finally, CHED defines Universities as those institutions which provide highly specialized educational experiences to train experts in the various disciplinal and technical areas with emphasis on RESEARCH. Universities offer both the Professional Courses of the PI’s and the Liberal Arts/Science courses of the Colleges but they are expected to do a lot of RESEARCH. An institution is considered a University if: • It has at least 20 degree programs of which at least 6 are in the graduate level; • At least 3 doctoral programs, one each in three different fields of study (distinct Fields of Study examples: Education, Management, Sciences etc.); • All graduate programs require thesis/dissertation and 50% of undergraduate programs require thesis or research papers; • At least 30 full-time faculty members or 20% of the full time faculty (whichever is higher) should be actively involved in research (evidenced by publication in refereed and CHED -acknowledged journals); • Annual research cost expenditures of P75,000/faculty involved in research; • Links with research agencies in various parts of the world. We are expected by CHED to: (a.) define where we belong, and (b.) provide documentary evidence that indeed we belong where we want to belong. What if we DO NOT BELONG to where we WANT TO BELONG? In this case, CHED defines your category and then assists you to reach the place where you want to belong (the developmental nature of CHED). Can a University status be withdrawn by CHED if the requirements are not met? The theory or principle here is simple: The authority that gives a status is the only authority that can withdraw the same. In practice, CHED will most probably do the following: (1.) generate a tentative listing of HEI’s with their prescribed horizontal categories, (2.) identify the HEIs which are misclassified based on the HEI-indicated preference and the requirements for each category, (3.) give the misclassified HEIs until 2017 to be correctly classified.
Exceptional Axis: Implications to Higher Education Institutions The vertical typology defines three upward levels of HEIs: Regulated, Deregulated and Autonomous. The vertical axis contains two information: (1.) Commitment to Excellence score (CE) and (2.) Institutional Sustainability and Enhancement Score (ISE). Regulated HEIs are, by definition, those which need to demonstrate good institutional quality and program outcomes. Over the period when these HEIs are “demonstrating”, they will be under the strict regulation of CHED. Deregulated HEIs, on the other hand, are those which demonstrate very good institutional quality and a robust QA system with a good proportion of accredited programs, international certification and presence of COE/ COD. CHED deregulates such institutions in the sense that they can offer new programs and other initiatives without the need for formal permits. The institutions are required , however, to inform CHED of such. Autonomous HEIs are those that demonstrate exceptional institutional quality through their QA systems and excellent program outcomes. Exceptional performance shall be gauged according to the horizontal type of institutions viz. Research and Publication for Universities; Creative work and Extension programs for Colleges and Employability and Linkages for Professional Institutes. Autonomous HEIs enjoy the full freedom to do what they wish to do in their academic endeavours without the need to even inform CHED. The CE and ISE points are added to obtain a vertical score:
Vertical Score = CE + ISE
CE is less than or equal to 70% ( CE ≤ 0.70) ISE is less than or equal to 30% (ISE ≤ 0.30)
The table below summarizes the minimum vertical score needed for the respective vertical categories: VERTICAL CATEGORY
With additional requirements for: Universities, Colleges and Professional Institutes
With additional requirements for Universities, colleges and professional institutes
CHED’s method will be to first ensure attainment of the Minimum Points and then to ensure that the additional requirements are complied with prior to the grant of the appropriate vertical category for the HEI. CHED has extended the grant of deregulated or autonomous status for the HEIs until May 31,2104. Those which have pending applications for the same statuses shall be evaluated on the basis of the new scheme if they are ready or else be evaluated based on CMO 48, s. 1996. BY 2017, CHED expects that requirements for University status under the new scheme shall have been fully implemented. Net Outcomes of the Two-Dimensional QA System for Higher Education If successful, the two-dimensional(horizontal-vertical typologies) QA system of CHED should result into the following: 1. Graduates of higher education institutions are quality-assured since they will all be products of Competency-Based curricula. The focus on skills (problem-solving, decision-making etc.) formation yields
competencies (group of related skills) that are responsive to the needs of the end-users of the graduates. The DACUM is the most efficient and effective means of developing such curricula. 2. Higher education institutions can now be sharply differentiated e.g. why a certain HEI is a college and not a University, because the definition of each type of HEI in terms of their functional roles in human capital development is also clearly defined. 3. University status is no longer a status of prestige under the new scheme. A University is not higher in status than a College (than a Professional Institute) because the role of a University is different from the role of a College ( or a Professional Institute). This should deter the propensity of HEIs to convert their statuses from colleges to universities unless the Colleges really want to change roles by emphasizing on RESEARCH (production of new knowledge) rather than on INSTRUCTION. 4. Prestige or status comes from the Vertical classification of HEIs because the vertical axis of the twodimensional QA defines which institution possesses higher quality (and therefore of more value to society). In other words, one should prefer a deregulated Professional Institute over a regulated College or a regulated University. Challenges and Prospects of the Two-Dimensional QA System in Higher Education The beauty and logic of the two-dimensional QA system in higher education are, without doubt, ideal and beneficial to the Philippine society. To CHED’s credit, this is the first most comprehensive and well-studied document on Quality Assurance in higher education after years of implementing ad hoc quality assurance systems in the country without appreciable results. However, the actual implementation of this QA system faces the following challenges: Technical Challenge: 1. How do we demonstrate that the two-dimensional QA system will be the most efficient, effective and equitable means of managing quality in Philippine higher education ? In order to convince the stakeholders of the rationality of the new quality assurance system, we must be able to show concretely that by applying the system in higher education, we will be able to extract maximum outputs from minimum inputs (efficiency), that we will be able to rationalize the existence of over 2000 higher education institutions in the country (effectiveness) and that no one will be unduly disadvantaged by the new scheme (Pareto rule). Administrative Challenge 2. How do we “typologize” each of the two thousand (2000) higher education institutions along the horizontal and vertical dimensions given the current higher education resources of CHED and time limits imposed for the system’s full implementation? For this, CHED needs to construct a Data-Based Empirical Two-Dimensional Quality Map of the 2000 HEIs in order to assess the magnitude of the administrative work that needs to be done prior to 2014. On the basis of this map, CHED can then optimize its available administrative resources (regional offices, external experts, technical panels, consultants and others) to overcome this challenge. 3. How do we keep the “number” of HEIs at the same current levels when the establishment of new private HEIs is an authority given to SEC and for the public schools from the Congress of the Philippines? CHED’s authority begins to manifest only at the stage where the institutions ask for permits to operate new programs. CHED can of course reject such new applications for newly established schools but it will have to do so at the risk of lawsuits.
Political Challenge 4.
How do we convince the political leadership of the country to support the two-dimensional QA system?
This is particularly true for the public higher education institutions whose establishment/conversion hinge on the sponsorship of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The political problem is magnified ten-fold once CHED withdraws a University status even among the private higher education institutions. Economic Challenge 5. How do we economically value movements from one state space to the next of the higher education institutions in the two-dimensional QA space? For example, how expensive would it be for a University to move from a regulated status to a deregulated one? This is certainly something that can be done by our higher education experts in Economics, and, perhaps, CHED can even support a Commissioned study for this purpose.

The Exposition of the Filipino Value Logic
JONAS ROBERT L. MIRANDA Surigao City Time: 5:41 – 6:10 (November 15 – Second Day) Venue: Princess Moon River Function Room
This expository paper seeks to address the deficiency of the two-valued deductive logic or the Classical Aristotelian logic in capturing the Filipino psyche. Moreover, this is based on the presumption that indigenous logic is evident in the reasoning processes of all human societies. The study of the two-valued logic has been part of the several degree curriculums in the Philippines but its apparent limitation in capturing the Filipino mind poses a new challenge. With this, the discussion will continue on the ground breaking programmatic investigation of Filipino logic. A preliminary analysis by Florentino Timbreza, et al. What Timbreza and his group did was a random collection of common maxims and sayings, statements and pronouncements of Filipinos from all walks of life in various newspapers, magazines, and komiks; they then collated and analyzed them. They found out that Filipinos with their own ethnic cultures and languages have their particular style or mode of reasoning and arguing. Following their findings regarding what makes the Filipino logic distinct and unique. They discovered that Filipinos arrive at their decisions and judgments using their value systems and they persuade others through Filipino modes of rhetoric and persuasion; in the process they sometimes commit fallacies by Western standards.
Analysis of Mothering in Amy Tan’s “The Joy Luck Club” and Bret Lott’s “Jewel” ANNABELLE R. NAIG Surigao State College of Technology Surigao City Time: 4:30 – 4:50 (November 16 – Third Day) Venue: Princess Moon River Function Room Employing a descriptive-analytical research design, this study analyzed the concept of mothering in Amy Tan’s “The Joy Luck Club” and Bret Lott’s “Jewel”. The complexity of mothering and the mother and daughter relationship were discussed taking into account the oppressive circumstances confronting the mother characters, their coping strategies, roles and qualities. Findings showed that with their individual writing styles, the authors effectively used plot and setting to develop dynamic and memorable characters. The emotionally absorbing act of mothering was influenced by a number of factors like a mother’s childhood, past experiences, present hardships and cultural orientations. But whatever circumstances they found themselves in, mothers remained strong because of their love and hope for their daughters. Mothers being resilient, self-sacrificing, and nurturing are the concepts of mothering derived from the novels. Based on the findings, the researcher proposed the following recommendations: Researchers should conduct an in-depth study as to how mothers from different cultures and backgrounds are portrayed in novels; congressmen should come up with specific government laws which aim to give assistance to mothers of special children, and teachers should incorporate literatures on mothering in their classes to provide for a better appreciation of women who made significant achievements in their respective field of endeavour as mothers.

Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in the Teaching of Biology EMMYLOU A. BORJA Surigao State College of Technology Surigao City Time: 5:11 – 5:30 (November 16 – Third Day) Venue: Moon River Function Room This study aims to determine the effectiveness of using Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in the teaching of Biology. The researcher used the quantitative method of research. A quasi-experimental design was employed in the 86 1st year BSED students of SSCT Main Campus, who were the respondents of the study. It utilized the following instruments: the learning guides for the lessons using VLE and traditional media, a researcher-made achievement test, modified Biology Attitude Scale and Interest Scale. For the analysis of data, z-test, t-test of Correlated Means, t-test of Mean Difference, t-test of Independent Samples and Spearman Brown Formula were used and hypothetical significance was pegged at α=.05. Results revealed that the experimental and control groups performed Below Average in the pre-test. However, during posttest both groups obtained an increased performance to “Average”. These findings indicated that the use of Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is as effective as the use of Traditional Media in teaching Biology. This implies that both media improved academic performance of students. Therefore, teachers can still rely on traditional media or use VLE. It also implies that both media can be used together in one biology lesson.
Work Attitude, Work Environment, Job Satisfaction and Performance of Private Tertiary Instructors MARIA TAVITA Q. LUMINTAC Surigao State College of Technology Surigao City Time: 5:31 – 5:50 (November 16 – Third Day) Venue: Princess Moon River Function Room This study determined the relationship of work attitude, work environment, level of job satisfaction and the level of performance of college teachers of private higher education institutions (HEIs) in Caraga Region. A sample of 316 teachers was selected using stratified random sampling from the 41 private higher education institutions of Caraga Region per CHED list. Pearson Product- Moment Coefficient Correlation indicates that work attitude of the teachers is affected with the work environment from which they acquire self satisfaction and high level of performance. High level of performance and positive work attitude of the teachers can be attributed to a healthy work environment which has an impact to the job satisfaction of teachers. Getting higher level of satisfaction makes one perform efficiently all because the work environment is showing commonality and support with each other.
