Faculty members of the College of Education enhanced e-learning skills and strategies in teaching after they attended the Intel Teach Summit 2011 in Fort Ilocandia, Laoag City, last April 12-15.
The delegation led by the CED Dean Prof. Esmar N. Sedurifa included Dr. Myrna E. Lahoylahoy, Rhea D. Febro, Joy R. Magsayo, Shelanee Theresa P. Ruales, Charity Mulig, and Vita P. Sinconiegue.
The training consisted of two parallel tracks: one for the administrators and the other for the teachers. The teachers took the Intel Teach Elements Courses on Project-Based Approaches, Assessment in the 21st Century Classrooms, and Collaboration in the Digital Classroom. These “high impact” short courses explore the learning concepts of the 21st century. On the other hand, the training prepared the administrators for a teachers’ action plan.
Prof. Amelia T. Buan (CED faculty on study leave) and Rhea Febro joined the pool of facilitators in the training.
The teach summit was an opportunity that showcased the best practices of the various schools’ Community of Learning (CoL) programs nationwide. For its part, the MSU-IIT CED through Dr. Myrna E. Lahoylahoy and Charity Mulig presented the Iligan Community of Learning Action Research (ICoLAR) Project and Project-Based Lesson implementation as its CoL initiatives.
Intel Teach Master Trainers of MSU-IIT were awarded certificates of recognition for their invaluable contribution in training teachers on the Intel Teach Program.
Strengthening its partnership with Intel, CED will impart knowledge on the new technology to other educators in all levels through its conduct of trainings and workshops.
