The course aims to strengthen practitioners in implementing a research project by crafting a SMART research proposal. The course affords students the opportunity to plan research that addresses problems, issues, and concerns in education, social sciences, and management. It also an avenue where learners showcase their research skills through the application, review, and perusal of content and processes they have learned in the university program.
Advanced Research is a three-unit course that provides fundamental research methodologies, procedures, and techniques in conducting collaborative education, management, or social science research. It tackles research issues and agenda in educational research to prepare the students for an actual research inquiry. The product required for the course is a research proposal.
The “course is designed to deepen students’ concepts and techniques that are essential to data processing and analysis” (Teacher Education Council and Research Center for Teacher Quality, 2020, p. 108). The topics center on non-parametric statistics such as tests of association and agreement, tests for one sample, two, and multiple dependent and independent samples. This course will specifically enhance students’ skills in testing hypotheses using non-parametric statistics and in using statistical software/s to automate data processing (Teacher Education Council and Research Center for Teacher Quality, 2020). The prerequisite of this course is Basic Statistics (FD 502).
This course is primarily designed for postgraduate students which provides an in-depth discussion of vector spaces and matrix algebra with applications to solutions of systems of linear equations and linear transformation. Students of this course are expected to:
1. Determine and use appropriate techniques for solving linear systems and problems involving matrix algebra and vector spaces.
2. Critically analyze and construct mathematical arguments that relate to the study of linear algebra.
This course provides the learners with essential concepts related to research designs, methods, methodology, and research ethics. This will cover the basic concepts of quantitative and qualitative social science researches. The course aims to provide students with knowledge and skills that will help them prepare for independent research studies in their respective fields and for future doctoral, professional, and research career opportunities. Students are expected to conduct and present simple quantitative or qualitative research as an application of their understanding of the research process.
This course focuses on special topics in number theory that complements
the course studied in the undergraduate level.
Developmental biology is a course that introduces students to the developmental processes that lead to the establishment of the body plan of organisms beginning at fertilization through the stages of their development and on the entire organismal development with the corresponding cellular and genetic mechanism. This course is intended for Master of Biology students. It consists of 3 units lecture. This includes a comprehensive survey of the developmental processes of animals during the formation of gametes through the embryonic stages, birth, maturation, and aging illustrates the diverse patterns, control and regulation of or during a differentiation, growth, development and regeneration.
I. The course orients, and guides science teachers on the different principles and strategies in teaching biology and equip them become efficient and effective teacher in a technologically and competency-based educational community. The course emphasizes the importance of the use of student-centered approaches in teaching and the employment of a combination of strategies in teaching a lesson to promote conceptual understanding, enhanced science process skills and problem-solving skills of the students in science. Aside from teaching methods and strategies, the course includes topics on test construction, conducting item-analysis and conceptual trace analysis and performance based assessment.
I. The course includes the three major branches of genetics – classical genetics, molecular genetics, and population/evolutionary genetics. After a brief introduction of its historical background, content and concept, the course presents the physical basis of heredity - nature of chromosomes, cell cycle differences and significance between mitotic and meiotic division, Mendelian and Non-Mendelian genetics, DNA structure and replication, protiensynthesis in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, gene regulation, gene mutation, population genetics and genetic biotechnologies. The course aims to cover a wide range of genetics, from cellular to organism level, and will show how classical genetics, together with the latest developments in molecular genetics, are being applied to the problems of how genes in different species are organized, expressed and interact to give the final phenotype. The goal of this 3-unit graduate course is to strengthen students’ comprehension of genetic concepts, so that they can read and interpret classical and current literature in the field of genetics and apply genetic analysis to their own research problems. Aside from class interaction, the course is supplemented with carefully selected articles taken from recent sources (books, magazines, journals and general interest periodicals) that present a wide variety of topics that influence human existence.
This three-unit master’s course examines the historical, philosophical, and sociological foundations of education as they relate to early childhood education, with a particular emphasis on teaching a culturally diverse population. The students will examine the teaching field, current trends, and early childhood teaching as a profession. Anchored on reflective teaching, students will be required submit an autobiographical essay.
This course attempts to provide the students a frame of reference for understanding the complex and the inter-related tasks of arranging conditions in an organization in such a manner as to make possible greater self-direction by personnel managers in the performance of their work. Focus is made on the management of personnel of public and private agencies or enterprises.
