The Fulbright Specialist Program’s “Global Curriculum Par Excellence: Sharing of Best Practices in Indigenizing and Engendering the Curriculum for Internationalization” training program officially started on September 19, 2023. The primary objective of this program is to equip faculty participants with the essential skills and knowledge needed to effectively utilize Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in their teaching methods and curriculum development efforts.

During the commencement of the program, Kaisipan Fellow Nina Maria Estudillo provided an overview of the iLearn, iCreate, iShare Digital Framework that the participants will be working with. She explained key concepts that will complement the lessons to be covered in the upcoming days.

Fulbright Specialist Maria Africa Beebe facilitated an open discussion where participants identified the limitations of advancing the curriculum through digitalizing classrooms. The discussion explored the challenges and potential barriers that may arise when integrating ICT into the curriculum.

A total of 15 participants attended the opening program. Among the participating colleges were Forestry (CF), Information Sciences (CIS), Human Kinetics (CHK), Public Administration and Governance (CPAG), Teacher Education (CTE), and Bokod Campus. These participants are set to undergo three weeks of intensive training, which will be delivered through a combination of face-to-face and online sessions.
