Higher education is not only teaching, it is both teaching and research (PAGE conference)

  1. 1. Carlo Magno, PhD. De La SalleUniversity Counseling and Educational Psychology Department
  2. 2.  A university is an institution of higher education and research, which grants academic degrees in a variety of subjects.  derived from the Latin universitas magistrorum et scholarium, roughly meaning "community of teachers and scholars”
  3. 3.  The University of Paris (c. 1150, later associated with the Sorbonne), the University of Oxford (1167), the University of Palencia (1208), the University of Cambridge (1209)  Goal: Form scholars
  4. 4.  German university system conceived byWilhelm von Humboldt (1810/1970).  Universities should shift from the mere “regurgitation of knowledge” to promoting independent inquiry and productive thinking among students by involving students in research.  Professors are expected to engage in their own research, as they are supposed to serve as models of how to produce knowledge in an intelligent, systematic, and scholarly manner.
  5. 5.  Fundamental shift in their institutional focus that made them a strong force in shaping the ideas that built the American nation in the 20th century. The importance of scientific research are embarked for their nation’s security
  6. 6.  Interplay between universities, government, and industry in the production of knowledge.
  7. 7. CHED RA 7722:  Ensure and protect academic freedom for the continuing intellectual growth,  the advancement of learning and research,  the development of responsible and effective leadership,  the education of high level professionals, and  the enrichment of historical and cultural heritage.
  8. 8. MediumTerm Development Plan:  mobilizing knowledge to improve productivity through generation, transfer and utilization of research outputs/technologies
  9. 9.  Teaching: Scholarly inquiry by faculty and students  Tradition of Publication  Competencies of Students: Scientific thinking  Expectations from the faculty
  10. 10.  Scholarly inquiry by faculty and students  Students do not depend on their teachers to learn information, but they need to generate their own knowledge.  Teacher provide tools and methods for students to learn and students in turn use these tools to become independent learners.  Students become self-regulated
  11. 11.  Students are self-regulated when they are:  autonomous who control, monitor, direct, and regulate their actions.  displaying motivation, goal- directed, and controlling their action.  Acquiring and judiciously apply positive learning strategies
  12. 12.  Scholarly inquiry:  Use the latest research findings to explain various phenomenon  Engage in a discussion of the latest development in the field  Predict and generate the next step to theorizing
  13. 13.  How do we facilitate scholarly inquiry?  Access to scholarly information like journals and published studies.  The courses are geared to equip students understand the content of scholarly journals ▪ Statistics ▪ Research methods ▪ Theory courses
  14. 14. Publication Public Presentation Write reports Our work is reviewed by a panel of experts Our work is evaluated whether we are contributing to theory
  15. 15.  Levels of Publication ISI abstracted Journals Abstracted journal International Journal Local journal Conference proceeding In house publication
  16. 16.  Requirements  Appreciation, value, and utility of producing scholarly work  Recognize the work devoted in developing and publishing a paper  Faculty as good role models in producing publications
  17. 17.  Competencies being developed are geared in the pursuit of lifelong learning.  If we are in a research university students should develop scientific thinking (Magno, 2010).  systematically exploring the environment,  constructing models as a basis for understanding the evidence of it, and  revising those models as new evidence is generated
  18. 18.  Scientific thinking involves (Magno, 2010): Practical inclination - scientific thinking in ordinary living such as everyday reasoning, and math applications Analytical interest - discover knowledge, and such thinking deals with concepts, hypoth eses and theories, and abstractions Intellectual Independence - the ability of a learner to make knowledge claims independent of the traditional authorities of the teacher and textbook Discourse Assertivene ss – building arguments and critical thinking
  19. 19.  If we want to create a scholarly culture in a university, then we need to develop a thinking that allows practical inclination, analytical interest, intellectual independence, and discourse assertiveness.
  20. 20.  The work of a higher education faculty should not be defined by their teaching load!!!  Proportional amount of work is given for teaching, research, and professional practice.  Recognize the diversity of work styles that characterizes an active faculty in pursuit of a creative work.  Produce publications, and profess the ideas published.

  25. 25.  Teaching — the learning environment (worth 30% of the overall ranking score)  Research — volume, income and reputation (worth 30%)  Citations — research influence (worth 30%)  Industry income — innovation (worth 2.5%)  International outlook — staff, students and research (worth 7.5%).
  26. 26.  Problems:  Some universities invest on their athletic teams but not in funding the research of the faculty.  No rewards correspond to a faculty’s publication.  No time is given for a faculty to do research  Teaching load is structured within a semester where a faculty rarely has time to go out for field work.
  27. 27.  We still need to acknowledge and create a system in the Philippine Universities that would allow the faculty and students to do research.  Needs to recognize that both teaching and research should go together
