To gear up the Midway Colleges Inc. (MCI) faculties for the new academic year, the Academic Department piloted this year’s In-Service Training (INSET) held at the Academic Building I last September 4-8 and 11-15, 2023.
The said training is an intensive and comprehensive program designed to empower faculty members and academic leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the dynamic field of education.
Over the course of ten (10) days, faculty engaged in a variety of activities, including workshops, presentations, and discussions, all aimed at enhancing its teaching abilities and understanding of key academic policies, processes, and frameworks.
The training program covered a wide range of topics, from Professionalizing the Teaching Profession, Outcome Based Education, Microsoft Loop, 21st Century Skills, and Using New Technology for Teaching, ensuring that faculties are well-equipped to meet the challenges of modern education. Notable speakers and experts in the field such as Dr. Richard L. Oandasan, Dr. Jonathan V. Macayan, Dr. Bernardino C. Ofalia, Dr. Jerome T. Buenviaje, and Dr. Elenita N. Que shared their insights and experiences, enriching the learning journey.
Throughout the training, faculty collaborated on revising learning materials, critiquing outputs, and engaging in interdisciplinary assessments. These hands-on experiences will not only enhance their teaching materials but also foster a sense of teamwork and collaboration within departments.
The program culminated in a Mock Team-Teaching Demonstration, where faculties put their newly acquired skills to the test. This practical exercise allowed them to display their teaching prowess and receive valuable feedback from their peers and panelists.
As the In-Service Training 2023 ended, an awarding and closing ceremony celebrated the dedication and achievements of all faculties.
The event marked the end of an enriching training program, equipping educators with the tools and knowledge needed to provide high-quality and transformative education to their students in the coming academic year.
