Description

The Workshop on Closing the Digital Skills Gap for the Philippines was held last May 27, 2019 at the Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology, University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman. The workshop was spearheaded by the UP Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA), together with the Program on Data Science for Public Policy (DSPP) of the UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) as its organizer and secretariat. The workshop had the following objectives:

  1. To begin unifying efforts to close the digital skills divide by discussing curriculum, resources, plans, policy interventions, and recommendations for government institutions, particularly for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), that may include the successful application of early education strategies; individually adaptive and low-cost artificial intelligence-based math learning platforms; workplace experience integration in high school and college science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses; and lifelong learning instruction;
  2. To discuss the next steps, areas for collaboration, and the possibility of developing a loose network of academic institutions engaged in data science/analytics; and
  3. To contribute the Workshop output on academe’s initiatives as input to the Analytics Association of the Philippines (AAP) panel/presentation at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Project Data Analytics and Raising Employment (DARE) Forum to be held in July 2019.
