UPOU Faculty Members Conduct Training Program for DOST-FNRI

A training program that aimed to equip selected Department of Science and Technology (DOST) personnel with knowledge and skills to design and evaluate suitable multimedia educational materials for their respective offices was conducted by UPOU faculty members.

Asst. Professor Luisa A. Gelisan of the Faculty of Information and Communication Studies and Mr. Lexter J. Mangubat, Instructor at the Faculty of Education gave talks and facilitated workshops on the conduct of front-end analysis (FEA), instructional design, and proposal preparation for learning materials development.

Front-end analysis is the first step in the instructional design process. It facilitates the identification of project requirements, in this case, learning materials development, based on the needs and characteristics of the target learners and the situation they are in. The conduct of FEA will help ensure that real needs/problems are addressed with appropriate solutions and acceptable alternatives. Thus, resources that shall be poured are invested efficiently and effectively.   

Instructional design, on the other hand, is the systematic development of instructional specifications using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction as well as in the development and production of learning materials in formats appropriate to the needs/situation of the learner.

A total of 60 individuals from various DOST agencies, central and regional offices, and DOST – Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) attended the training program. With the knowledge gained and skills acquired from the training, the participants are expected to design, produce, and evaluate multimedia educational materials for their respective offices based on instructional goals and learner preferences.

The training-workshop, organized by DOST-FNRI, was held on 24 to 26 April at Wyndham South Forbes, Silang, Cavite.
