UE Administrative Officer Presents Paper in Local, International Conferences


Mr. John Israel U. Cunanan, the Senior Administrative Assistant at UE’s Textbooks Evaluation and Publishing Office (TEPO) since 2014, made a paper presentation of his research on the “Philosophy of Teaching in the Philippines and How the Schefflerian Philosophy of Teaching Can Be Significant to It” in two different events: at the 6th Iloilo Philosophical Association (IPA) National Conference on March 2, 2018, at the St. Vincent Ferrer Seminary in Jaro, Iloilo City, and at the 2018 International Symposium on Education and Psychology (ISEP 2018), which was held last April 1 to 3 at the International House in Osaka, Japan.

Mr. Cunanan, a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities graduate of the University of Asia & the Pacific who is also currently pursuing his master’s studies in Philosophy of Education at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, was an Araling Panlipunan and Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao teacher to Grade 7 students in school year 2013-2014 at UE Manila’s then Elementary and Secondary Laboratory Schools (ESLS, now the UE Basic Education Department-Manila).

This marks Mr. Cunanan’s latest research paper and paper presentations, following two earlier papers that he had authored and presented in two different conferences.

This third and newest paper of John’s is in line with the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) indicator that a good teacher is “able to articulate, apply, manifest and model a Philosophy of Teaching (PoT).”

Mr. Cunanan’s newest paper argues for two major positions: that selected textbooks for the professional education subject named The Teaching Profession do not adequately address the aforesaid PoT indicator, and that the work of 20th-century American philosopher of education Israel Scheffler can appropriately address the inadequacy.

Kudos, Philosophy Warrior!
