Overview

The new GE curriculum (CMO no. 20, s. 2013) sets minimum standards for the GE component of all undergraduate degree programs in private and public higher education institutions (HEIs) in the country. It will be implemented starting Academic Year 2018-19, and it aims to expose undergraduates to various domains of knowledge and ways of comprehending social and natural realities, in the process, developing intellectual competencies and civic capacities.

The new curriculum has a total of 12 courses (8 core courses, 1 mandated course, and 3 electives). These are interdisciplinary and stated broadly to accommodate a range of disciplinal perspectives and approaches. The goal is the holistic development of the person, which targets competency-based outcomes categorized into: (1) Intellectual Competencies; (2) Personal and Civic Competencies; and (3) Practical Responsibilities. CHED commissioned experts to develop a sample syllabus with up-to-date and appropriate materials for each core course. These are in English and Filipino (developed with the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF)).

To further support the HEIs, CHED also conducted the Training of GE Trainors for the core courses in both English and Filipino. The training focused on teaching the pedagogy and interdisciplinarity of the new core courses in order to produce the best GE faculty who could then train other GE faculty nationwide.

CHED has produced 900 trained trainors during its Training of GE Trainors last October 2016 and January 2017. Moreover, 2,884 GE faculty from 37 DHEIs nationwide have completed the Second-Generation GE Faculty Training last April and May 2017.

Modifying the guidelines of the previous two Second-Generation Trainings to accommodate more faculty, CHED is reopening its call for GE faculty applicants to undergo trainings in 20 CHED-approved Delivering Higher Institutions (DHEIs) nationwide.

Objectives

The modified Second-Generation GE Faculty Training for the New GE Core Courses aims to:

  1. Orient faculty participants about the philosophy of liberal education, away from the strictly disciplinal and remedial thrust of the old GE courses;
  2. Enable the faculty participants to teach the interdisciplinary GE core courses using the new materials;
  3. Recognize, share, and disseminate best practices in general education.

Available Courses

The following GE core courses will be delivered in both English and in Filipino:

  • Art Appreciation/Pagpapahalaga sa Sining
  • Ethics/Etika
  • The Contemporary World/Ang Kasalukuyang Daigdig
  • The Life and Works of Rizal/Ang Buhay at mga Akda ni Rizal
  • Readings in Philippine History/Mga Babasahin sa Kasaysayan ng Pilipinas
  • Purposive Communication/Malayuning Komunikasyon
  • Science, Technology, and Society/Agham, Teknolohiya, at Lipunan
  • Understanding Self/Pag-unawa sa Sarili
  • Mathematics in the Modern World/Matematika sa Makabagong Daigdig

 

Delivery

Faculty to be trained will undergo the GE courses as students, using the CHED-developed syllabi in English and Filipino for the GE core courses via face-to-face mode. The CHED-designated trainers shall include and/or develop other training materials, including the pedagogy of interdisciplinary courses.

The ideal class size is 40 faculty participants per GE core course per version, while the minimum number is 20. The faculty participant shall be endorsed by his or her SHEI.

To receive a Certificate of Participation (COP), the faculty participant shall attend classes and other required activities, and complete the training requirements specified by the CHED-designated trainor/s. A faculty participant may not incur more than 3 days of absences for any reason.

The modified Second-Generation GE Faculty Training shall be organized and conducted by DHEIs recognized and approved by CHED.

Training Duration

Each course shall consist of 54 hours of classroom time, plus time spent fulfilling course requirements. To allow flexibility, a DHEI may adopt any of the following models:

  1. Open schedule with a minimum 14 training days (consecutive or broken);
  2. All-Saturday Training Sessions (whether consecutive or broken) with a minimum of 17 sessions;
  3. 1 week of intensive training with the rest of the required hours spread out in schedules chosen by the DHEI.

Models other than those listed above shall require prior approval.

 

Eligibility

A tertiary faculty member who is teaching or will teach a GE course and is endorsed by his or her SHEI is qualified to participate. He or she must be academically and physically fit to undergo training.

The SHEI may nominate a faculty member for each of the 9 GE core courses, either in English, Filipino or both. Should the SHEI send a non-permanent faculty, it shall do so with the intent of rehiring or requiring return service after the training. A rehiring agreement shall be submitted to CHED to support the recommendation and commitment of the SHEI.

Sending Higher Education Institutions (SHEIs)

The SHEIs shall be selected based on the following criteria:

  1. SHEIs should be duly recognized higher education institutions by CHED;
  2. SHEIs with a greater need for training shall be given priority, based on the number of programs they offer, the size of their student population, and whether or not they have the capacity to train their own faculty members.

Every effort shall be made to ensure that the SHEIs are located near the DHEI so as to make training accessible to the participants at minimum cost.

 

Application for Faculty Participants

  1. The SHEI shall vouch in writing that its faculty participant is fit and, if not permanent, will be rehired or is able to return the required service;
  2. Faculty trainees shall apply to the DHEI and submit the following documents directly to the contact person/coordinator of the DHEI:
    • Accomplished application forms (available at the office of the DHEI coordinator or may be requested from the TPGE Secretariat at ched.tpge@gmail.com or gened@ched.gov.ph)
    • Recommendation/certification of the head or duly authorized representative of the SHEI; and
    • Accomplished training contract executed by the faculty trainee and the head of the SHEI
  3. DHEIs who have approved proposals and work and financial plans (WFP) shall submit: (a) the list of faculty participants and their respective institutional affiliations; (b) the application form of training participants; (c) certification of SHEIs allowing their faculty to attend the training; and (d) a billing statement based on the CHED budget, signed by the program coordinator and the treasurer/finance officer.
  4. The CHED shall then review and approve the final list of participants and the WFP. Funds will be released to the DHEI based on the number of faculty to be trained as indicated in the approved WFP.

Financial Privileges

Php 21,000.00 will be allocated for each faculty participant per GE course per version, inclusive of expenses for participants (food and kit/materials) and for resource persons (honoraria, food, travel, and accommodation), as well as 10% administrative cost to support the implementation of the training program. This amount shall be released to the DHEIs after the Memorandum of Agreement is signed.
