DIPOLOG CITY, February 29, 2024 – The Department of Education Planning Service – Policy Research and Development Division (PS-PRDD) has undertaken a Key Informant Interview (KII) and Focus Group Discussion (FGD) concerning the revision of the Research Management Guidelines (RMG). They also paid a courtesy call to the top management, as DepEd Dipolog was chosen as one of two Divisions to represent Mindanao.

The primary objective of the activity is to gather insights into the effectiveness of the RMG in guiding research managers and conducting research within DepEd. Furthermore, officials aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing the RMG by identifying the issues and challenges faced by implementers in executing DO No. 16, s. 2017.

Following collaboration with the Divisions, they identified optimal strategies for the research management cycle and activities, as well as acknowledged roles of research managers that were not previously addressed in the RMG.

DepEd Dipolog extended congratulations to the head of Research, SEPS Atty. Terence Eyre B. Belangoy, for the successful interview.
