GFPS-CHRE EXPLORES CREATIVE PEDAGOGY AS TRAINING STRATEGY
Taps PETA Artist-Trainers
To continually develop capabilities as GAD trainers, the GFPS-CHRE tapped artist-trainers from the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) as resource persons for the Training-Workshop for Enhancing Capabilities of GAD Trainers via Creative Pedagogical Methodologies, which was held on May 17-19, 2015 at the Hotel Rembrandt, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
The training is a direct response to the lack of sustained capacity development programs for GFPS-CHRE members as one of the concerns identified in the University’s mainstreaming efforts—especially because the group’s training needs have become deeper and more specialized.
