The workshop series touched on action research in the fields of math, science, languages, educational technology, and educational leadership.

Speakers for the lecture seminars, aside from Williams, were: Dr. Mary Brydon-Miller, also from the University of Louisville ; Dr. Mimi Rojo-Laurilla, program coordinator of Speakers Bank and Innovative Business Programs of Annecto Inc. in Australia; Dr. Jerome Ouano, an Educational Psychology specialist; and  Dr. Sterling Plata, an advocate of assessment reform for a growth mindset.





BAGCED Co-hosts National Language Summit


The Department of Education (DepEd) and the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) in cooperation with the Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC College of Education (BAGCED) sponsored the Summit on the Survey of Philippine Languages on April 26, 2016, Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Verdure, 5th Floor of the Henry Sy Hall, De La Salle University, Manila. The activity was in line with the commemoration of the 10th death anniversary of a Philippine linguistics giant, Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC, who was a former Secretary of DepEd and the Chairman of the Board of SIL.


The national language project was the brainchild of Br. Armin Luistro FSC, DepEd Secretary and Chairman of the Board of SIL, in his desire to help preserve and revitalize the Philippine languages.


The event was a gathering of university and college presidents from all over the Philippines for the proposed survey and two-year research and community engagement of the current state of all 177 Philippine languages. The main objective of the event is for each higher education institution to adopt one Philippine language. For endangered languages this will help to ensure its preservation and survival through documentation. For more vital languages, it will give opportunity for collaborative work with the speech community to determine steps for language development. The main output of these research activities will be the production of the Philippine Ethnologue book that will document all language activities in the country.
