Para sa mga DS alumni 2012


Bago ang lahat, ipinapaabot ko ang aking pagbati at pakikiisa sa mga bagong henerasyon ng propesyonal.

Apat na taon na ang lumipas simula nang kayo ay pumasok sa pamantasan ng bayan sa kursong Araling Pagkaunlaran. Inaral natin ang dialektika ng lipunan at pagbabago. 

Ngayon naman ay nagsisimula na kayong bumuo at magtaguyod ng kanya-kanyang career sa iba't ibang larangan tulad ng human resource development, environmental research, policy development, medical studies, international studies, transnational crime research, market research, capital market development, business management, community organizing, social welfare, local government, women's health research and advocacy, at iba pa gawaing pangkaunlaran.  Gayundin, nagpapatuloy sa mga larangang ito ang dialektika ng buhay.  Kaya inaasahang taglayin pa rin ninyo ang lawak ng kaisipan, kritikal na pagsusuri, at tatag ng karakter na nahubog at nilinang ninyo sa pamantasan.  Magiging salalayan at sandigan ninyo ito magbago-bago man ang karanasan, konteksto at kapaligiran sa trabaho.

Balikan ang mga konsepto, teorya at mga kasanayang natutunan sa loob at labas ng klase.  Ilapat sa konteksto ng inyong mga bagong karanasan ngayon.  Gayundin, humalaw ng mga bagong kaalaman mula sa inyong kasalukuyang mga karanasan at imungkahi sa akin para sa integrasyon nito sa kurso.  Sa pamamagitan ng ganitong ugnayan sa pagitan ng kaguruan at alumni ay magpapatuloy ang pagiging buhay, dinamiko at napapanahon ng Araling Pangkaunlaran sa antas ng teorya at praktika. 

Maraming salamat at hanggang sa muli....




 

Paalala (Sumangguni rin sa mga naunang blogpost)

  • Econ 115 - Aralin mabuti ang 3 babasahin at mga bank flyer na natipon. 
    Agahan ang pasok para sa pagsusulit.
  • DS 121 - Paghandaan mabuti ang 2 pagsusulit (comprehension response and picture analysis)
  • NSTP - Husayan ang pagsusulat ng 2 reaksyong papel ukol sa mga artikulo nina Marasigan at Tolentino.
  • DS 127 - Paghandaan mabuti ang agri-cosplay at sumunod sa takdang oras ng haba ng pagtalakay.
    Simulan na ring mag-usap online para maaral at mapaghandaan ang climate change initiative flip chart presentation.  Padalhan dapat ng e-copy ang ibang mga kagrupo upang masimulan na rin nila itong aralin habang walang pasok.  Magpadala rin ng kopya sa jnponsaran@yahoo.com.  Tambalan din ito sa Miyerkules ng group study para mas maging malaman ang talakayan at mas mahasa sa presentasyon.  Ipinaaalala ko na bagamat ito ay binuo bilang grupo, ang presentasyon ay isa-isang isasagawa.
  • DS 126 - Aralin mabuti ang 2 babasahin ukol sa local innovations.  Pagkakataon ito para makahabol ng puntos.  Sa kabuuan ay 140 items na ang 2 magkasunod na pagsusulit. 
    Bagamat opsyonal ang policy lobbying matrix, tiyaking huhusayan pa rin ng mga magpapasa ang pagbuo nito.
  • DS 123 - Bagamat opsyonal din ang critical content analysis ng local TV ad, tiyaking huhusayan pa rin ng mga magpapasa ang pagsusulat nito.  Paghandaan din ang pag-uulat nito sa harap ng klase.
