The Communication Management Office (CMO) facilitated the training which was composed of four (4) batches with morning and afternoon sessions.</p> <p>In her opening message during the third batch of training, Vice President for Research, Extension, Planning and Development (VPREPD) Dr. Anna Ruby Gapasin shared the reason why this activity was held: “This training is a reminder for all of us – we must always be on our toes when it comes to delivering effective public service. It does not matter if we are already experts, we should constantly open ourselves to learning and re-learning especially now that the nature of public service delivery is evolving given digital transformation.”</p> <p>The first batch of trainees came from the Student Affairs and Services Sector and administrative and services staff from different PUP branches and satellite campuses. This was held last April 7-8 through Zoom. Employees from Administration and Finance Sectors were trained during the second batch, held on April 18-19 while members of the Academic Affairs and Research, Extension, Planning and Development Sectors joined the third batch on April 20-21. The last batch, organized on April 25-26, was provided for employees under the President and Executive Vice President Sectors. The newly retrofitted gymnasium served as the venue for the second to fourth batches of trainings.<br />  </p> <p><strong>Ease of doing business as a primary government service</strong></p> <p>Atty. Mariane Celeste L. Carino-Lameyra, from the Anti-Red Tape Authority, was the keynote speaker. She discussed the Adopting the Ease of Doing Business in Answering Queries. Participants were informed about the basic principles and salient provisions of ARTA and 8888 Citizen’s Complaint Hotline, and how these laws affect frontline services.</p> <p>Executive Order 6, s. 2016 instructs all government agencies and units to receive citizens’ concerns through any communication channel and provide concrete and specific action within 72 hours upon receipt. This is consistent with the rules of the Anti-Red Tape Acts of 2018 where simple requests should be acted upon within three (3) working days, and more complex requests should not exceed seven (7) to twenty (20) working days.</p> <p>These laws explain the requirements for efficient and reliable services as well as the penalties in case of violations. The employees were also trained on how to improve their services, especially customer service relations.<br />  </p> <p><strong>Training modules and simulated outputs</strong></p> <p>Trainees would need to complete five (5) modules to receive the Certificate of Completion. The modules were designed to refresh the communication concepts needed for client engagement; provide them with practical tips on writing emails and reports; and understanding client concerns raised in social media platforms.</p> <p>Prof. Buellah May Convento from PUP CreaTV discussed the Principles and Structure of Communication; Atty. Fidel L. Esteban from Collabera Technologies Private Limites Inc. discussed the Purpose of Persuasion; Ms. Lara Danielle F. Cartujano from Fujitsu GDC Philippines discussed the Clarity and Mechanics of Writing Well; Prof. Earl Jaynus Guzman from CMO-External Relations Services discussed the Basic Social Media Communications.</p> <p>After the discussion, the trainees were tasked to draft a standard response for emails based on scenarios given to them, identify their frontline services and actual response time, and audit their existing social media platforms and websites. Offices and units without social media presence were asked to determine whether they would need one to promote their services.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the Vice President for Administration Prof. Adam V. Ramilo reiterated the purpose of being a public servant, “Dapat po ba nating masamain ang mga natanggap nating complaints? Bilang public servant, dapat hindi natin masamain. Kundi, tingnan natin ito bilang constructive criticism upang mas lalong paunlarin ang ating serbisyo. Marahil may pagkukulang tayo o ang client, pero sa nature ng ating trabaho dapat naroon tayo sa diwa ng pagpapakumbaba at makayang serbisyo-publiko.”</p> <p>In a separate recorded message, EVP Alberto Guillo reiterated the same challenge to our officers: “Much as David bravely fought Goliath even if he is bigger than the rest of the Israelites; the same is true for us frontline officers. We have so much work to do, but we know we can always do better and overcome these challenges.”</p> <p>A simulation exercise will be conducted this May to observe enhancements in client engagement among the trained officers.</p> <p><img alt="CMO conducts u-wide Complaints Management Training" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/j3JTfrv/2022-05-06-cmo-conducts-u-wide-complaints-management-training.png" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=aajt%2f7vuO9U%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Fri, 06 May 2022 14:11:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=aajt%2f7vuO9U%3d PUPian EcELE topnotcher: Pray and be positive Jovi Mae Gabrentina, News, PUP Campus Journalists <br/><p>Despite being an overthinker, Engr. Jhon Loyd Ignacio Tenorio of PUP. Sto Tomas Batangas has kept a positive outlook during the April 2022 Electronics Engineer Licensure Examination (EcELE) where he emerged as one of its 7th placers.</p> <p>“Be positive! Though isa akong overthinker na person, I would suggest na ‘wag na ‘wag talagang i-a-attract ang mga negative vibes!” he said.</p> <p>Engr. Tenorio was among the three examinees with a score of 88.70. According to him, he partly expected to be part of the top passers, as he was “kind of confident” with his answers during the exam. Equally, he also had doubts, as he was also afraid that he might “overclaim” and be “overconfident.”<br />  </p> <p><strong>‘From 500 questions a day to Engineer’</strong></p> <p>Due to the postponement of the licensure examinations because of the ongoing health crisis, Engr. Tenorio was among those people who had no choice but to seek employment. Juggling his full-time work and reviewing for the exam has become his great challenge.</p> <p>“Ang pinakamalaking challenge sa’kin on preparing for the ECE board exam ay kung paano ko pagsasabayin ang review and yung current work ko as a System Admin sa isang IT Company. Matinding time management talaga ang kinailangan ko because I will be working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week,” he explained.</p> <p>Meanwhile, when he enrolled in a review center, he said that he relied primarily on recorded sessions as he was unable to attend online courses because of his job. Despite the challenges, Engr. Tenorio shared how he has remained positive. He recounted those two months before his exam, he became frustrated as he realized that there was still much to be done. But instead of being discouraged, he assessed his strengths and weaknesses. From then on, he concentrated on his weaknesses and paid particular attention to those important topics that he “was still uncomfortable with.”</p> <p>“Nag grind ako nang nag grind by answering more than 500 multiple choice questions per day, because I am aware that I really need a lot of catching up to do,” the Engineer said.</p> <p>“Minsan nga nagre-review pa ako 16 hours a day para lang maka-catch up. I know 16 hours a day is a lot, and I won’t recommend it either for future ECEs kasi super unhealthy no’n, but I don’t really have much of a choice during that time,” he added.</p> <p>Engr. Tenorio also shared how prayers have helped him along his engineering journey.</p> <p>“During and after the board exam, I really surrendered everything to Him! I am not a very religious person talaga. I don’t even have a bible verse na pinanghahawakan ko. Pero, I know for a fact that there is a God,” he stated.<br />  </p> <p><strong>‘Mula sa’yo para sa bayan’</strong></p> <p>Meanwhile, Engr. Tenorio advised his fellow PUPian especially the graduating students, to claim the license, to always believe in themselves and to trust God.</p> <p>“Kung meron mang board exams ang program niyo, i-claim na natin ang well-deserved nating license and let us return the favor sa ating Sintang Paaralan, PUP!” he said.</p> <p>“We really do need to return the favor sa ating bayan dahil sa pribilehiyong pinagkaloob sa atin na makatungtong sa ating Sintang Paaralan.” he added.<br />  </p> <p><strong>Moving Forward</strong></p> <p>On the other hand, Engr. Tenorio said he will remain in the company where he is currently working and will try to assess whether it is the best career path for him. He is also considering joining the PUP Academe.</p> <p>“I am also considering taking a master’s degree as there is some invisible force pushing me to part of the academe of PUP,” he said.</p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=VQ%2f7hyf8R%2bM%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Fri, 06 May 2022 14:08:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=VQ%2f7hyf8R%2bM%3d Psychology Department participates in development and launch of PH adapted UTC for substance use disorder Emy Ruth Gianan, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>Globally recognized Universal Treatment Curriculum (UTC) for substance abuse disorder will be distributed to various universities in the country, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) included. Distribution of this new textbook and curriculum is part of a multiyear program titled “Enhancing Treatment and Prevention in the Philippines” sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) and in partnership with the Colombo Plan Drug Advisory Program (Colombo Plan) and the Philippines’ Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB). The launch was held virtually last April 14.</p> <p>Noting its significant contribution to ensure a better understanding of substance abuse and addiction in the Philippines, Dr. John Mark Distor and Dr. Aimee Rose Arguelles-Manda of the PUP Psychology Department actively participated in the development of the UTC. They worked on the first chapter in the book, Physiology and Pharmacology. This explained the science of addition, outlined different psychoactive substances, and discussed family systems and social stigma.</p> <p>Dr. Manda, an International Certified Addiction Professional III (Supervisory Level), was also part of the team who wrote Chapter 2: The Continuum of Care. Her 18-year experience in the field of substance addiction helped her extensively contribute and expound on the principles of recovery and the different factors that affect treatment outcome, nature of motivation, and continuing care. Writers were expected to provide local data and contextualize the contents of the book to be more applicable to the Philippine setting.</p> <p>“I have always been keen to adapt Addiction Specialization in our Sintang Paaralan. Other universities have yet to offer this as part of their curriculum, and I believe that PUP can pioneer this. The Treatment and Prevention Curriculum can be integrated in our existing program and be considered as one of the Psychology Department’s niches. Producing graduates with this kind of specialization, who would actively advocate for drug use prevention and treatment, would be a great contribution of our university,” Dr. Manda shared in an email interview.</p> <p>Over the course of the program, a total of 10 faculty members of the University’s Psychology Department joined the 10-day walk-through training of the UTC basic courses. The latest batch of participants, who also witnessed the UTC book launch, include Dr. Pricilla Marzan and Dr. Christopher Sasot. Together with Dr. Manda and Dr. Distor, Dr. Geraldine F. Santos, and Dr. Rodrigo Lopiga also served as first batch of participants in 2018. Instructors Timothy Morales, Elfie Samaniego, Krisette Romero, and Arianne Nachor joined the second batch in 2019.</p> <p>The book covered eight (8) topics. This includes the following: Introduction to the Science of Addiction; Treatment for Substance Use Disorders; Common and Co-Occurring Mental and Medical Disorders; Basic Counselling Skills; Intake, Screening, Assessment, Treatment Planning and Documentation; Case Management; Crisis Intervention; and Ethics for Addiction Professionals. Each topic has been developed by a team of academic experts and professionals, two (2) of which came from PUP.</p> <p>PUP is an active member of the International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR), while Dr. Manda represents the University as a certified education provider in the International Society for Substance Use Professionals (ISSUP) given her international credential as addiction professional.</p> <p><img alt="Psychology Department participates in development and launch of PH adapted UTC for substance use disorder" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/vsX8Cn5/2022-05-02-psychology-department-participates-in-development-and-launch-of-ph-adapted-utc-for-substa.jpg" /><br /> <sub><strong>Photo source: </strong>Cruz, Kaithreen (2022, April 14).

The study titled “Solo ON and OFF Duty: Challenges of Selected Solo Parent Employees in Call Center Companies and the Implication of Republic Act 8972” has been accepted for publication in the International Journal for Research Innovation in Social Science (IJRISS) Volume VI, Issue III of the Research and Scientific Innovation and Society on its March 2022 release.</p> <p>The published article describes the saga of the solo parents in relation to the 20-year-old Republic Act 8972. The researchers sought the expert opinion and personal testimonies of the participants in addressing the complex problems of today’s solo parents. Findings of the study served as basis for recommendations in aid of legislation to the local government units (LGUs) with support from the non-government organizations (NGOs) in championing the cause of solo parents.</p> <p>Ralph Joseph C. Tuazon led the group of researchers, with Jessa C. Butiu, Sittie Farhannah C. Natangcop, Jessa Mae L. Lonzaga, and Marie Katrina A. Lim.

He shared interesting insights on the shared principles of all major world religions especially as they impact on the “modern” concern for inclusion or inclusivity.</p> <p>“Actual religion is better understood as spirituality within the context of Christianity, engaging in living principle that we are eternal spiritual being,” Acharya Das quipped.</p> <p>EMO Director Dr. Rolan Malvar, in his welcoming remarks, underscored how faith-based organizations should be means by which we can unite communities towards development work rather than being founts of misunderstanding, factionalism, and conflict. Dr. Vivencio Ballano of the Sociology Department was a reactor for the main talk. He affirmed the insights of the main speaker while pointing out how Catholic theology evolved to be responsive and inclusive given current social dynamics and concerns.</p> <p>As the university’s advocacy unit related to community extension and outreach work, CID offered this webinar as part of its lynchpin program of sponsoring a series of online educational lectures on key issues that help clarify and promote the various concerns of inclusion and diversity in our university and the broader community.</p> <p>The Webinar is one of the many initiatives and activities of Extension Management Office (EMO) under the Office of the Vice President for Research, Planning, and Development (OVPEPD). It is part of the year-long series of online CID talks on relevant issues borne of inclusion concerns dubbed as the “Polytechnic University of the Philippines’ Inclusion and Diversity Talks” or PUnDIT.</p> <p><img alt="CID organizes webinar on inclusion and religion" class="image image-full" src="https://i.ibb.co/mGMXWtF/2022-04-28-cid-organizes-webinar-on-inclusion-and-religion.jpg" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=xAZ%2fl4J80jI%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Thu, 28 Apr 2022 15:58:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=xAZ%2fl4J80jI%3d Three CS research projects receive PCIEERD FLAG funding Mary Rose Arce, News, College of Science <br/><p>All three (3) research teams from PUP College of Science received funding from the prestigious Facilities and Laboratory Access Grant (FLAG) Program of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) - Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD).</p> <p>The projects are geared towards developing emerging technologies and exploring innovations in line with the PCIEERD sectoral priority areas.
