IMUS CITY, Cavite – Dr. Teresita Pareja, one of the panel members from De La Salle University-Dasmariñas (DLSU-D) University Research Office (URO), prodded 125 participants to “keep the fire burning” in conducting basic education researches during the 2nd Conference of Researchers for Action and Transformative Endeavor (CReATE) held on July 5 and 7 at Del Pilar Academy Audio Visual Room.

The “fire” figuratively refers to the “desire and enthusiasm” of the Schools Division of Imus City Education Program Supervisors, School Heads and Teacher-Researches to share their own action and full paper researches and proposals to improve its methodology and technical areas.

Three competent researchers from DLSU-D URO headed by its Director, Dr. Melanie Medecilo; Arch. Daisy Palattao, in charge of Intellectual Property Right (IPR); and Dr. Pareja, a research advocate and Chairman of the Department of Languages, composed the panel members who gave feedback on the proposal and research outputs of 17 presenters during Day 2 of the conference.

These proposals and research outputs were aligned to teaching and learning, human resource development and school governance agenda of the Department of Education. The panel members emphasized to researchers that by having the learners in mind as the beneficiaries of the actions to be taken to the issues/problems that they have raised, the quality of education and its relevant policies, processes and systems will improve.

During the lectures prior to the research presentations, participants were assured that their proposals will not come into waste since there is an available funding from the Regional Office for the conduct of the research and for the actions to materialize.
