The seminar-workshop aimed to enhance the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of the 30 faculty participants from the different colleges of the university in applying relevant principles and standard processes in a project management environment.
The said activity was followed by an Impact Evaluation Seminar-Workshop held at Microtel, General Santos City last May 8-10, 2019 to share to the faculty-extensionists an overview of impact evaluation. It also aimed to deliver them with the process of crafting designs on their respective projects based on the parameters of impact evaluation towards their extension framework.
As a result, the participants gained insights on how the university can create an impact to the community. Other related research and extension seminar-workshops will be initiated for the faculty members of the university such as monitoring and evaluation, syllabi integration, strategic planning, technical writing workshops and all related to strengthening the research and extension programs and projects of the university.
After all the trainings, a full-blown implementation of the extension projects will be carried out in a chosen community and the research proposals will be submitted to recognized funding entities.
