CTE and R&DC join hands in transforming researches into publishable outputs

November 23, 2012

The College of Teacher Education (CTE) in collaboration with the Research and Development Center (R&DC) organized a research capacity-building seminarworkshop on November 10, 2012 at the University of the Cordilleras.

It aims to transform research outputs done by faculty members and non-teaching staff into journal articles ready for publication. This activity is a response to the high demand of research output publications in universities all over the world, thus, a way to enhance the capacity of UC in research. This is in line with the University and &DC's mission to maximize the benefit of the University's scholarly research by advancing fundamental knowledge to improve instruction and access to quality of life.

The seminar-workshop was facilitated by Dr. Constantino D. Ballena from De La Salle University - Dasmariñas. He is the President of the Philippine Association for Graduate Education (PAGE) IV-A Chapter and the Editor of the PAGE IV-A refereed research publication. Dr. Ballena is also being tapped by various HEIs and agencies in the country as a resource speaker discussing about research publications and refereeing, in addition to his engagements in research paper publications and presentations here and abroad.

More than 50 participants from the different colleges attended the RCBA in the university including deans, department heads, faculty members, faculty researchers, and research class teachers. Each of them was enlightened by the information discussed while stimulated their minds in the workshops given. The activity lasted for eight fruitful hours with the discussion of the parts of publishable research journal articles and the corresponding workshop in each topic. The seminar-workshop's aim to provide faculty researchers with the technical-knowhow and guidelines for writing and publishing a research output in a peer-reviewed journal has been attained after the lecture and application.

Despite the participants' call for a better and stronger support from the university regarding the research undertakings, funding, and incentives, faculty researchers are still motivated to push forward in attaining the research and development mission and vision if given the chance and resources. It was also reflected in their sentiments that research can be done through breaking disciplinal boundaries and comfort zones for the aim of developing knowledge. The R&DC then assures of more institutional research capability-building activities to be organized regularly.
