The School of Graduate Studies sponsored the first of a series of Journal Group Discussions which aimed to provide opportunities to faculty to discuss their research, literature review and/or instructional materials in the field of education, governance and management; and strengthen the culture of research and intellectual discourse in the university.
The Journal Group Discussion is an idea of University President Dr. Raul G. Bradecina. It is a regular activity where a group of faculty come together and each one is assigned to present any of the following: (a) a review of selected literatures from scientific journals; (b) a research proposal or a recently completed research; or (c) an instructional material. The discussion is documented to help the presenter improve one’s work. A literature review may be developed further during the discussions which may be submitted for possible publication in the form of a Review Article.
Last July 11, 2018 the discussant was Mr. Charlie Balagtas, faculty of Master in Public Affairs (MPAF). He presented the initial report of his study entitled “Recreational Attitude, Preferences & Travel Cost Analysis of Potential Tourist to Malabungot Protected Area Landscape & Seaside.” Present during the discussion were visiting scientist expert Dr. Daniel Nover from the University of California in Merced, VP for Administration Dr. Arnel Zarcedo, Board Secretary Lea Odono, Research Director Luisa Lanciso, Extension Director Rosemarie Tabardillo, Planning Director Josenia Penino, and faculty of the Graduate School.
Last July 19, 2018, the discussant was Dr. Maria Wendy Solomo, faculty of Master of Arts in Education (MAED). She presented the initial report of her study entitled “Employment and Promotion Status of PSU Graduate School Alumni of 2010-2017.” Present and active during the discussion were Research Director Luisa Lanciso, Extension Director Rosemarie Tabardillo, Planning Director Josenia Penino, Arts and Sciences faculty Dr. Agnes Pesimo, and faculty of the Graduate School.
