Another feather was added to the cap of Pangasinan State University as it continues to be a fountain of knowledge for other government institutions.
Dr. Phillip Queroda, executive director of PSU’s Open University System (OUS), was tapped to give a talk during the Training of Trainers on the Capacity Development Program for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the Local Special Bodies organized by the Department of the Interior and Local Government-Local Governance Regional Resource Center I- (DILG-LGRRC) held in the Province of La Union.
DILG Regional Director Julie Daquioag said the activity aims to provide the CSOs with the knowledge and abilities they need to be more effective members in the LSBs of local government units.
Dr. Queroda expounded on the topic ‘Local School Board as Catalyst of Education’ which aims to strengthen the CSO’s involvement in local governance and in the LSB.
“It is always a privilege to share and impart knowledge and first-hand experiences to fellow educators and introduce to the civil societies what the PSU and the education sector as a whole, are undertaking to invigorate community involvement and provide quality learning for everyone,” Dr. Queroda said.
The OUS Executive Director is one of the top researchers and authors of PSU whose works have been cited for about 117 times in local and international research citations.
Other topics discussed during the face-to-face training include: Education as an Empowerer: State of Education in the Philippines, the Finance of Education and the SEF Budget, the Role of CSOs in LSBs and a Best Practice presentation.
