From 1991 to 2005, the Education Research Program (ERP)’s research agenda was crafted together with educationists and disciplinal experts to make education research more relevant to communities.
One strand of inquiry in the agenda focused on functional literacy and non-formal education. The emphasis of the research inquiry was on comprehensive community-based development through education interventions for adults.
Another strand of inquiry was on the indigenization of curricula to suit the knowledge, values, practices, culture, and skills of members of indigenous or cultural groups.
Family studies and education inquiries also comprise another set of research projects within ERP.
The institutionalization of the K-to-12 Basic Education Program created major changes in the basic education curriculum which affects not only higher education but also early childhood and technical education. Many transitory scenarios and challenges have come to fore as the Philippines undergoes massive reforms.
ERP crafted an education research agenda for five years (2018–2023), together with fellows and colleagues who are entrenched in education delivery and/or research.
The objective of the agenda is to direct ERP’s work that will contribute to the deeper understanding of education issues and the social issues arising from reform.
Below will be the objectives that will be met by crafting the agenda:
- To consolidate research and to create themes of Filipino scholarship on education topics
- To understand current issues in the education landscape
- To nurture a critical group of faculty researchers on education that is ably supported by competent research staff
Activities and Projects
As internet use and access to social media continue to rise in the Philippines, the production and distribution of false and malicious information online also become more prevalent and sophisticated. With disinformation as a widely used tactic to advance political and commercial interests, it is necessary for online users to find better ways to evaluate information. Based on the online civic reasoning curriculum formed by Stanford History Education Group, the workshop provides strategies and activities to help online users in spotting fake news online.
