Keys to Achieving Quality and Excellence: Utilizing Research in Graduate/advance Educations (Conclusion); EDUCATORS SPEAK


Byline: Dr. Consuelo C. Canias-Callang

MEANWHILE, the value of classroom-based research is not only to fulfill requirements for graduation. These empirically-based studies can contribute a lot to efforts directed at achieving quality and excellence for schools or institutions of higher learning.

Relative to this, our experience at the University of Perpetual Help, Rizal, is that theses/researches are geared at meeting the Vision, Mission and Goals of the University.

For example, a study done on improving the clinical reasoning skills of Therapeutic Exercises I students through conceptual change instruction showed that for highly technical courses like Physical Therapy, instruction and learning can achieve the desired effects in improved student achievement through conceptual change instruction. Faculty members in the College of Physical Therapy are encouraged to try various ways of improving performance of the students.

An earlier study assessed the status and prospects of the College of Physical Therapy as part of the College's effort at self-improvement. The findings of the study have given rise to subsequent investigations which are expected to bring about the desired actualization of the Vision, Mission and Goals of the College.

As part of the concentrated effort to bring about the desired changes in the College of P.T., a recent study looked at the correlation between certain factors as qualifying examination results and other variables on the performance of their graduates in the Physical Therapist Examination. The Ibe report of 2000 on performance of Colleges and Universities in the Philippines in the various board examinations given by the Professional Regulations Commission gave impetus to the study. Hopefully, by "teaching to the test," performance can be improved in the graduates. The results of the study, hopefully, should help raise the percentage of passing for the Physical Therapist Licensure Examination in the next few years.

A study done in the College of Engineering looked at how the teaching of Integral Calculus can be helped in terms of increments in learning for students through Programmed Instruction. The positive result of the study for the teaching of Integral Calculus has encouraged similar developments for the other "difficult" Engineering subjects. Hopefully, improved academic performance will be observed in the next few years, which may bring about increased passing rates for board examinations.

An interesting study looked at the effects of multisensory teaching for improvement in attitude as well as academic achievement of students enrolled in the subject Travel Management and Operations, a subject for courses in BS Hotel and Restaurant Management and BS Tourism. …
