Teachers from 4 Provinces to Receive Free ICT Training

Teachers from 4 Provinces to Receive Free ICT Training

The College of Computer Studies (CCS) is administering a series of training on information and communication technology (ICT) to teachers in four provinces: Negros Oriental, Siquijor, Cebu and Bohol. 

It starts its first session on May 14 to 18 in Silliman University, with its first batch composed of 30 teachers from Negros Oriental and Siquijor. Similar training sessions are scheduled off-site: Cebu on May 21 to 25 and Bohol on May 28 to June 1.

Themed “ICT in Teacher Education in Region 7: Benchmarking, Training, Technology Development towards Innovative Teaching and Learning,” the activity recognizes the need for teachers to be updated on recent trends and techniques in the use of internet technology.

Participants will be oriented on ICT operations and concepts using international ICT competency standards.

Silliman is designated Center of Development in Information Technology Education by the Commission on Higher Education. The series of training by CCS is a product of a grant from CHED through the Philippine Higher Education Research Network, of which Silliman is one of select members.

Leading the project is CCS Dean Dr. Dave E. Marcial.
