Western Mindanao State University helps Mindanao TEIs on CQA
Curriculum Quality Audit (CQA) as a way for Teacher Education Institutions (TEI) to check and align their curriculum with current education reforms is gaining more ground in Mindanao as the Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) partnered with various higher education institutions to help them conduct their own audit.
WMSU signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College (ZCSPC) in Zamboanga City, and will soon be formalizing their partnerships with the Basilan State College (BaSC) and Claret College of Isabela, both in the province of Basilan; Sulu State College in Sulu, and with the Zamboanga State College of Marine Science & Technology (ZSCMST) in Zamboanga City.
WMSU President Dr. Milabel Ho said CQA has been considered as “one of the best practices at the WMSU College of Education”.
“We are very pleased and proud to be able to share this with other institutions because of the help of the Research Center for Teacher Quality,” Dr. Ho said.
RCTQ had helped 32 universities including WMSU which are considered Centers of Excellence/Centers of Development (COEs/CODs) in Teacher Education in the review and revision of their respective teacher education programs after being trained on Outcome-based Pre-Service Teacher Education Curriculum Quality Audit (CQA).
“The positive reception of the TEIs from the faculty to the top management made me realize the need for disseminating the CQA process in various parts of Mindanao. To many, the CQA process seemed to provide the opportunities for those left behind by government programs because it empowers them to improve their quality of teaching,” shared Dr. Byron Go Silk, associate professor at WMSU who also serves as one of their CQA specialists.
