HEIs continue to experience revolutionary changes that demand new or enhanced competencies among students to meet the requirements set by globalization, regional integration of higher education, transformative education, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Hence, CHED’s Office of Programs and Standards Development (OPSD) through the Technical Committee for Communication (TCC) is currently conducting the “Consultative Workshop on the Development of PSGs for Undergraduate Communication and Development Communication Programs” in Tagaytay City.
STELA’s BA Communication professor, Dr. Janet S. Tibaldo, joins the consultative workshop that aims to prepare a proposed updated curriculum map for the BA Communication program. More specifically, the workshop focuses on identifying the program’s desired outcomes, proposing new courses aligned with the desired outcomes and competencies, and proposing amendments in the definition of selected courses based on agreed outcomes and competencies.
Workshop participants are limited only to the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Philippine Association of Communication Educators or PACE, the oldest and biggest professional organization of communication and media educators and practitioners in the country. Dr. Tibaldo has been a PACE trustee since 2013.
As CHED TCC paraphrases Charles Dickens, “this is the best of times and the worst of times to define a desired communication curriculum.”
