A Memorandum of Agreement creating the Mindanao Academic Case Developers Consortium (MACDC) was forged among three top Mindanao universities — MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT), University of the Philippines-Mindanao (UP-Min) and Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) last September 2017. The MACDC was the brainchild of four USAID – STRIDE Case Writing and Teaching Workshop alumni who were required to conduct echo trainings on case teaching in their respective universities. However, the bigger vision of reaching out to more than 400 HEIs in Mindanao and sharing the case teaching method as a learning approach motivated Dr. Pamela F. Resurreccion of the College of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) and Asst. Prof. Lemuel Clark P. Velasco of the School of Computer Studies, both teaching in the Master in Business Management program of CBAA, MSU-IIT, along with Asst. Prof. Thaddeus R. Acuña, CPA of UP – Mindanao and Prof. Noel Tarrazona of WMSU to organize a consortium.
MACDC aims to (1) promote and advocate the use of case study approach or methodology in academic learning within the Mindanao setting; (2) provide a venue for enhancing skills of Mindanao teachers/professors in case teaching; (3) sustain development of case studies on various areas of interest in Mindanao governance, science and technology, entrepreneurship and management, peace and order, Mindanao culture, gender and development, among others; and (4) establish continuing collaboration between and among industry players, development institutions, government and higher education institutions (HEIs) in Mindanao.
The Mindanao Case Teaching Workshop is the first project of the MACDC; it was held at The Royal Mandaya Hotel, Davao City last September 28 – 30, 2017. A total of 25 selected participants coming from 11 HEIs in Mindanao attended the 3 – day training. The HEIs include MSU – Iligan Institute of Technology, University of the Philippines – Mindanao, Western Mindanao State University, Andres Bonifacio College (Dipolog City), Furigay College (Basilan), Notre Dame of Jolo College (Sulu), Bukidnon State University (Malaybalay City), Davao Doctors College (Davao City), University of Southeastern Philippines (Davao City), Mindanao Autonomous College Foundation, Inc. (Basilan) and University of Southeastern Philippines (Tagum City).
As facilitators of the Case Teaching Workshop, Dr. Resurreccion gave a short lecture and led a discussion on “The Educational Process: From Curriculum to Learning” while Asst. Prof. Velasco gave an overview of the case teaching process and introduced the participants to the William Davidson Institute Philippines STRIDE Cases.
“We were overwhelmed by the positive response of the participants,” Asst. Prof. Velasco said and added that the participants were looking forward to a case writing workshop. “One of the goals of the MACDC is to come up with a collection of Mindanao cases that faculty members from different disciplines can use to enhance the learning experiences of students,” Dr. Resurreccion said.
The case method is among the learning approaches encouraging active learning among students.
