In its pursuit to take the lead in the field of research, LPU’s Research and Skills Development Office conducted the first part of their Research Capability Building Seminar Series last July 14, 2015. With the title “Seminar/Workshop on Action Research”, its primary objective is to emphasize the importance of research not only for the institute, but also for the community and for all stakeholders of the university.
The seminar started with a prayer followed by the singing of the national anthem. The event was graced by the presence of the Vice President for Administration/Registrar, Ms. Maria Teresa O. Pilapil, who delivered a very inspiring message. In her message, Ms. Pilapil stressed that failure should not hinder us from achieving our goals. As the saying goes, try and try until you succeed.
The seminar/workshop proper was led by the Research and Technical Skills Development Director, Dr. Mark Irvin C. Celis, who gave a brief yet profound discussion about action research. The highlight of the event was the workshop part, wherein the faculty members and non-teaching personnel (NTP) who participated in the seminar/workshop had their chance to make a research proposal concerning their own department/unit. At the end of the workshop, the proposals were collected and reviewed by the research team.
