USPF es­tab­lishes ‘CORE’ sem­i­nar

Sun.Star Cebu - - BILLBOARD -

The Univer­sity of South­ern Philip­pines Foun­da­tion (USPF) es­tab­lished the first Col­lo­quium On Re­search Ex­cel­lence 2017 (CORE2017) last May 23 at the Lahug cam­pus.

USPF in­tends CORE to be a con­tin­u­ous pro­mo­tion of the new dis­cov­er­ies in multi-dis­ci­plinary ar­eas of re­search pre­sented by USPians in­ter­na­tion­ally and lo­cally. It pushes CORE as an in­ter­na­tional event which in­vites and wel­comes ex­perts in spe­cific fields of spe­cial­iza­tion as ple­nary or con­cur­rent ses­sion speak­ers.

CORE2017 is the col­lab­o­ra­tive pro­ject of the univer­sity headed by the Cen­ter for Re­seach, Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment through di­rec­tor Odilon Ma­glasang, with CORE2017 col­lab­o­ra­tors: univer- sity pres­i­dent Ali­cia Ca­batin­gan, vice pres­i­dent for in­for­ma­tion com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy Lester Gastala and alumni and ex­ter­nal re­la­tions di­rec­tor Kath­leen Solon-Vil­laneza.

CORE2017 is en­dorsed by the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion and the Com­mis­sion on Higher Ed­u­ca­tion.

Dr. Rod­ney Ju­bi­lado, as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor of the Univer­sity of Hawai'i, de­liv­ered the ple­nary lec­ture ti­tled “On Dis­ci­plines and Area Stud­ies: Re­think­ing of Ped­a­gogy and Re­search.”

In the af­ter­noon, ses­sions on three strands were held: ed­u­ca­tion, psy­chol­ogy and lan­guage.

A work­shop at the ple­nary also show­cased iPAD learn­ing as Ap­ple is a strong part­ner of USPF.
