Dean Sebastian discussed the “1898 Tondo Working Class Legacy in Philippine Historiography” during second day.</p> <p>“We often tend to focus on the grand narratives in our nation’s history. The more famous heroes and well-known events, and how these impact the way society is shaped today. This is why putting local histories and heritage front and center becomes more important – because we get to highlight the diversity of our experiences and the depth of our identity as a nation. We should not forget the smaller stories, the more parochial concerns in towns and provinces, the specific struggles of different segments of the society; that’s the beauty of studying our history and this is where PUP can contribute significantly,” Dean Sebastian shared in a separate interview.</p> <p>In his presentation, Dr. Sebastian used historical sources to break common stereotypes for Tondo as a place for brawls, gangs, and conflicts. He emphasized the presence of Tondo-based personalities such as Andres Bonifacio and other unnamed members of Tondo’s working class, proving its powerful place in the country’s history.</p> <p>“Ang imahe ikinakabit (sa Tondo) ay nag-iiwan ng malaking pitak sa diwa at gunita ng mga taong na kanilang nagiging sandigan sa pagkakakilanlan nito. Ang imaheng nabuo sa kanilang gunita ay nagiging matibay na muog na siyang pinaniniwalaan bilang buong katotohanan. Ito rin ang nagsisilbing reference point ng mga sumunod na henerasyon,” Dr. Sebastian explained in his presentation as he used film portrayals of Tondo in contrast with historical references.</p> <p>(“Tondo’s image leaves a lasting impact on its current conception. The image built overtime strengthened and was then used as basis for the whole truth of its existence. Such image also serves as a reference point for the next generation.”)</p> <p>His presentation was under the plenary session on the “Development in the Historiography and Heritage of the Philippine Revolution and the First Philippine Republic.” He was joined by experts from the NHCP, Eufemio Agbayani III discussing “Monuments and Historic Sites of the Philippine Revolution and the First Philippine Republic” and Prof. Michael Charleston Chua on the “Legacy of the 1998 Centennial Celebration of Independence.”</p> <p>The participation of Dean Sebastian is part of the University’s engagement with its long-time collaborator, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP). Equally, the national conference is a commitment of the NHCP to its member-affiliates in the Local Historical Committees Network and local history and heritage practitioners across the country under the 2022-2027 National Action Plan for Local History and Heritage. The conference is also done in solidarity with the National History Month every August.</p> <p><img alt="CSSD Dean discusses working class legacy in Local History National Conference" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/ScNVJKs/2023-09-08-cssd-dean-discusses-working-class-legacy-in-local-history-national-conference-1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <img alt="CSSD Dean discusses working class legacy in Local History National Conference" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/7p6VFV5/2023-09-08-cssd-dean-discusses-working-class-legacy-in-local-history-national-conference-2.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=%2bExbiRxyH5w%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Fri, 08 Sep 2023 16:48:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=%2bExbiRxyH5w%3d REPD Sector organizes first R&E Summit Elaine Carie A. Andres, News, Extension Management Cluster Coordinator 7 <br/><p>The Office of the Vice President for Research, Extension, Planning, and Development (OVPREPD) together with the Extension Management Office (EMO), Research Management Office, Research Institutes, and Research Centers launched and conducted the first Research and Extension Summit (R&E Summit 2023) on June 21-23, 2023 at Bulwagang Balagtas. The three-day summit underscored the theme “PUP as National Polytechnic University: Strengthening the Culture of Research Towards Sustainable Extension program.”</p> <p>R&E Summit provided a venue to discuss all the challenges experienced in research and extension, find solutions to identified challenges, and craft a research and extension roadmap and strategy for the university. With these objectives, the Summit initiated conversations and engaged Deans, Associate Deans/Assistant Directors, Program Chairs, Senior Faculty Members/Academic Researchers from different colleges, branches and campuses.</p> <p>Among the resource speakers invited were Dr. Shermon O. Cruz, Chair, Association of Professional Futurists; Dr. Geraldo S. Petilla, a Chief Administrative Officer at the National Research Council of the Philippines; and, Mr. Carlo P. Fernando, a Higher Education Lead of Education Development Center.</p> <p><strong>The future of research for academics</strong><br /> On the first day of the summit, Dr. Shermon O. Cruz, the first resource speaker, discussed the future of research and what it would look like after a decade. He even raised some questions to engage with the participants that led to another discussion regarding Funding and Technology Innovation like external funding opportunities and collaboration with foreign countries. He also added the matter regarding having highly specialized individuals with knowledge and skills in performing modern lab equipment and experiments.</p> <p>Dr. Cruz synthesized his presentation by emphasizing that the future of research is all about future thinking of deliberate application of technology. Equally, he discussed how these should be integrated with other disciplines such as education, engineering, sciences, mathematics, the humanities, and language.</p> <p>“Through research, we should be able to identify the future and use it to achieve our aim of becoming a highly intensive research university and a premiere national university as a whole,” Dr. Cruz quipped.</p> <p><strong>Transforming PUP into a reliable research insitution</strong><br /> Dr. Geraldo S. Petilla, the second resource speaker, presented how to transform the university into a highly intensive research institution.</p> <p>“Professionals in the academy should commit themselves to, not just simple research, but intensive research outputs. These studies should deliver substantial changes that will lead us in another direction. The same goes for not just being a passive researcher but also actively contributing to the academic research repository with passion and vigor. Research should change people’s mindset and behavior; it should move people and be an influence in your community and country, ” Dr. Petilla explained.</p> <p>He then shared strategies towards being an intensive research university (IRU):</p> <ol> <li>mentoring program,</li> <li>network and linkage with experts outside of the university,</li> <li>inclusion of junior faculty in drafting research proposals,</li> <li>incentives in publication,</li> <li>internationalization program/unit,</li> <li>inbreeding is discouraged,</li> <li>establishment of incubators, technology business offices and others,</li> <li>no fields and disciplines are left behind,</li> <li>linkage with the government,</li> <li>involvement in the Regional Development Council,</li> <li>membership in consortiums,</li> <li>pillars in research (specializations), and,</li> <li>regular benchmarking</li> </ol> <p> </p> <p><strong>Extension in higher education institutions</strong><br /> Mr. Carlo P. Fernando, the third resource speaker, showed his presentation titled, “State of the Philippine Higher Education Extension Program: Challenges, Priorities, and Opportunities” where he said that their office was tasked with engaging different colleges to help with reaching out-of-school youth.</p> <p>For Mr. Fernando, higher education may be seen from different perspectives by different people. Such differences may contribute to some challenges faced by Philippine HEIs, specifically their extension programs. He discussed how higher education institutions are challenged to deepen their collaborations with other research institutes, universities, and institutions.</p> <p>“I believe that faculty extensionists should teach students how to better lend a hand on community extension programs so that they can be equipped with essential skills through community work and immersion,” Mr. Fernando concluded.</p> <p><strong>Accomplishment reports and action points</strong><br /> Meanwhile, the directors along with the chiefs of each unit under the OVPREPD presented their accomplishments such as implemented projects and programs organized by their unit. Furthermore, they even talked over all the services that they can offer and enlightened the participants in the processes of any specific service or request.</p> <p>One of the highlights of the three-day summit was the presentation of Dr. Jackie D. Urrutia, Director of the Research Management Office (RMO), regarding the Research and Extension Roadmap. He discussed the achievements and goals of university publication from 2016-2022. It showed that based on Scopus data, there were a total of 298 publications that were published during the said timeframe. The data also showed the highest number with a total of 83 produced publications in the year 2021. On the other hand, the number of research publications on the same year was 74, where year 2022 recorded the highest number with 18 research publications.</p> <p>This was followed by the signing of commitment to a 10-year research and extension roadmap participated by the university president, vice presidents, deans, directors, chiefs, and officials from different colleges, branches, and campuses who attended the Research and Extension Summit.</p> <p>President Dr. Manuel M. Muhi delivered the summit’s closing remarks. He mentioned that he could see all the sector’s hardships in conducting and implementing their research and extension programs are delivering substantial changes to the university and community. He was hoping that as the 10-year roadmap starts next year, it can target the goals that were laid out. He emphasized that as we talk about roads, we all know that there will be hindrances and obstacles along the way.</p> <p>President Muhi, the University President, on behalf of the Executive Committee, promised their full commitment to support these goals that we are all targeting to achieve in the future. As the deans, directors, and chiefs signed the covenant of commitment, Dr. Muhi reiterated that as the 3-day summit ended, this should be paired with everybody’s dedication and willingness to put their efforts in line.</p> <p><img alt="REPD Sector organizes first R&E Summit" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/n37WLrs/2023-09-07-repd-sector-organizes-first-r-e-summit-1.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <img alt="REPD Sector organizes first R&E Summit" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/4YvY1YM/2023-09-07-repd-sector-organizes-first-r-e-summit-2.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=RUb47OYdHWQ%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Thu, 07 Sep 2023 20:44:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=RUb47OYdHWQ%3d NSTP organizes SDG-focused community outreach programs Joey Danting, Alyanna Santos, News, PUP SANDIWA <br/><p>PUP NSTP is now permitted to hold in-person activities on the campus and in the barangays near the PUP Main Campus for this academic year. It has been held every Sunday for the months of June and July with different activities executed: from community outreach to clean-up drives, material donations, and painting campus facilities.</p> <p>During the pandemic lockdown, the NSTP held its immersion activities through online webinars. This year, activities are now held in-person which makes the students and instructors excited and full of enthusiasm as they implement their planned projects. Students are accompanied by their instructors as well as NSTP Director Dr. Rovelina Jacolbia and CWTS Chief Mr. Joey Danting while engaging in their immersion activities.</p> <p>“I believe it would be an ideal plan to bring back face-to-face immersion activities now that students have more opportunities to interact with one another and develop their interpersonal and communication skills. Furthermore, I believe that performing physical community service may be more beneficial because such experiences enrich learning and impart useful life skills,” shared Ma. Editha Bernardo, first-year Finance Management student who also serves as their class’ Immersion Project Head.</p> <p>“I think it’s great that the NSTP immersion events take place in person because it gives us more exposure to the community and its challenges, which is what this course is all about—solving them as a community. It’s an eye-opening movement and an honor to take part in the impactful steps for social change here because we feel more empowered, can carry out our causes more effectively, and learn about what society and our country have gone through,” quipped Angelo Albao, Cycle 2 Immersion Project Head. This covers the immersion of Education with majors in Social Studies and Mathematics.</p> <p>Their activities are all related to the CWTS Module which includes mental health awareness, drug education, gender and development, and environment protection. The goal is to showcase the knowledge that the students have learned from their classes. Through this initiative, students are brought closer to our community, environment, and its people.</p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=T2mBDK7O1ps%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Mon, 04 Sep 2023 15:55:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=T2mBDK7O1ps%3d Students, faculty receive awards at DISSCON 2023 Karyl Scarlet Esogon, News, Department of Broadcast Communication <br/><p>Students and faculty from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines - Manila stood triumphant at the DLSU International Social Sciences Conference (DISSCON 2023).
