Aiming to assimilate concepts and principles for effective supervision that help improve the quality of teaching and learning in the Alternative Learning System (ALS), the Educational Leadership and Management Course (ELMC) launched last March 22.
The course welcomed eight (8) ALS Focal Persons and 22 Education Program Specialists for ALS (EPSA) in Zamboanga Peninsula to undergo three modules in their 7-month journey.
On their ongoing journey, these ALS implementers underwent modules on how to track teachers’ and learners’ performance and deepening their understanding of the ALS 2.0 curriculum design and its implementation.
Highlights of ELMC’s first module include teaching them how to rate their teachers, and how to monitor learners’ participation.
Dr. Anita Tagadiad, lead facilitator for ELMC, shares templates to the participants they can use for rating the teachers and template guides for the assessment of learning of the ALS learners.
Rodgee Pausal, EPSA for Zamboanga del Norte Schools Division shared his experience in creating a session guide as part of their second module activity, “It was hard for me at first, but after going through the activities given all throughout the sessions, it became easy for me.”
During the second module of ELMC, Dr. Tagadiad explained how to articulate the competencies into enabling skills and essential knowledge for the ALS Learning Strands.
Zamboanga Sibugay ALS Focal Person Judito Gumandao said that the guides shown to them during their sessions will help the ALS teachers in delivering quality learning to the learners.
In the next months, the participants will undergo their module on Academic Leadership and Supervision (ALaS).
