As the recent school year drew to a close, a team of UE Basic Education Department-Manila faculty members had the distinction of representing UE by presenting a research paper involving the University.

Teachers Louise Mae C. Bangsal, Rizalyn P. Ramos (also the Department’s Primary Level Coordinator) and Dianne G. Rodriguez (also the Department’s Guidance Counselor), presented their joint research on “Inclusive Education Program: The University of the East Experience” at the recent 5th Asian Conference on Education and International Development (ACEID), which was held on March 25 to 27, 2019 at the Toshi Center Hotel in Tokyo, Japan. They did so under the leadership of UE Manila Principal Nieva J. Discipulo in collaboration with the UE Guidance and Counseling Office.

The UE team’s paper is a documentation and evaluation of the program to assist the growing needs of UE Manila’s Basic Ed students, especially those with special needs. It is thus attuned to the theme of “Independence and Interdependence” of the conference, which saw 180 participants from five continents.

The conference was organized by the International Academic Forum (IAFOR) in association with the IAFOR Research Centre at Osaka University and IAFOR’s Global University Partners. It was a venue for participants “to reflect on the technological and logistical advances brought by globalization and analyze the desirability, extent and limits of independence and autonomy of their selves and their stakeholders who are educated in highly grouped identities.” As such, the conference sought “to determine solutions on how this interconnectedness through technology can help students and teachers to have an opportunity to work together as a responsibility to the one world we share beyond nationalities, religion, politics, culture and financial realities.”

The research presentations were from a diverse array of education professionals, ranging from faculty members, school administrators and other educational institution representatives to government agencies touching on special education, educational practices and praxis, policy implementation, technology and global education. Consequently, the acceptance of the UE research paper in ACEID 2019 has paved the way for the UE Basic Education Department-Manila to network and benchmark on the practice of Inclusion in the different Asian countries.

The ACEID 2019 keynote speakers were Professor Yozo Yokota, who is currently the President of the Japanese Center for Human Rights Education and Training and Special Advisor of the Japanese Ministry of Justice, and Specially Appointed Professor Haruko Satoh of the Osaka International School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) at Osaka University in Japan.

Besides presenting at the conference, the UE delegation also got to visit Soka University on the invitation of Dr. Tatsuki Toda, the Dean of Soka University’s Graduate School of Engineering, who was a plenary speaker at the UE CAMANAVA Studies International Conference on Quality Education for Sustainable Development held in UE Caloocan last February 8 to 10, 2019, and met with UE College of Arts and Sciences-Caloocan Professor Maria Cecilia D. Salangsang, who is currently pursuing her Ph.D in Environmental Engineering for Symbiosis at Soka University.

Congratulations, Basic Ed. Warriors!
