BACOLOD CITY, April 18 (PNA) — West Negros University (WNU) here has recently trained its 230 faculties on the Learner-Centered Approach on Education (LERCA), announced WNU vice president for Academic Affairs Dr. Lloyd Bautista.
Bautista explained that LERCA is focused on outcome-based syllabus design and development, student-centered learning technique and strategies, effective communication skills, effective slide presentation and visuals, and spiritual recollection.
This type of instructional platform is a requirement under the manual regulations of the Commission on Higher Education, he said.
“We are moving toward outcome-based education or student-centered learning, that is popular in the United States and parts of Europe, Australia, and New Zealand and we will incisively identify competencies and skills that students should know,” he said.
He also admitted that WNU has difficulties but they are now focusing on quality of instruction and education and publication and research.
What is important is the knowledge that they contribute to society and they are now improving their quality of education, publication, and research, he said.
With LERCA as their instructional platform, Baustista said they expect that many of their students will apply the skills, knowledge, and behavior learn from WNU. (PNA)
