CEBU CITY, March 9, 2024 – In a bid to continuously enhance the quality of education in the Philippines, the Department of Education recently organized a week-long workshop focused on the Review of Revised DepEd-Developed Learning Resources (DDLRS). The event, held at Hotel Fortuna in Cebu City from March 4 to 8, 2024, brought together key educators and internal stakeholders from various divisions across the country.

Among the participants was Dr. Monina R. Antiquina, Education Program Supervisor (EPS) in Araling Panlipunan, representing DepEd Dipolog. Antiquina, who serves as the assigned learning resource evaluator (LRE) of the division, played a crucial role in the workshop’s activities.

Organized by the DepEd Central Office’s Office of the Undersecretary for Curriculum and Teaching, the workshop aimed to refine the process of reviewing and evaluating the revised DDLRS. Throughout the week, participants engaged in orientation sessions focusing on both individual and team-based review methodologies. The workshop also facilitated mechanical checks of team review reports by facilitators from the Bureau of Learning Resources (BLR), ensuring thoroughness and accuracy in the evaluation process.

The workshop’s objectives align with DepEd’s commitment to continuous improvement in educational materials and resources. By enhancing the review process for learning resources, the department aims to ensure that materials used in classrooms are of the highest quality and relevance to the curriculum.

Dr. Antiquina emphasized in an interview the importance of collaborative efforts in enhancing learning resource evaluation. “This workshop provides us with invaluable insights and strategies to effectively assess and improve the quality of educational materials. By working together and sharing best practices, we can better serve the needs of our learners and educators,” she remarked.

The workshop equipped participants with improved skills for evaluating learning resources, expected to enhance DepEd’s quality assurance processes and contribute to nationwide educational improvement.
