SOA Mid-Assessment conducted

Written by Administrator on 10 July 2018

Halfway through, the School-on-the Air program of the University conducted its Mid-Assessment last July 4, 2018 at the Audio-Visual Room of the Extension Directorate with the SOA Coordinators from the partner municipalities in the province.

Geared towards identifying emerging needs and monitoring of the conduct of the program, said meeting is a convergence of inputs from the field through the SOA coordinators who keep an eye to the enrollees of the program. The activity also became the venue of sharing announcements and planning for the remaining airtime of the SOA.  

Among the matters discussed are the topics aired during the program to include livestock production, crop production, discussions on climate change and their effects to agriculture with intellectuals from different national agencies and researchers from the University, and testimonials from SOA enrollees who have actively put into practice their learnings from the previous SOA; suggestions on possible interviewees for their sharing on their experiences from the various technologies promoted in the program; monitoring on the collection of quizzes and other pertinent information about the enrollees; monitoring of active enrollees and drop outs; update on the distribution of carrageenan plant growth regulator to interested SOA enrollees and other support to be provided; post assessment and agreement for Top Achievers; agreement on the Graduation Exercises; signing of MOAs for sustainable and strengthened partnership; problems encountered during their monitoring activities, and other concerns.

The activity also served as a consultation time for the enhancement of the program. Concerns on the preferences of airing time, signal, and other issues encountered were brought out during the forum in hope that they will be addressed as the program continues.

To recall, the School-on-the-Air program commenced last March 14 spearheaded by the Extension Directorate, the College of Industrial Technology (CIT), and the College of Agriculture, Food, and Sustainable Development (CAFSD) in partnership with supportive agencies such as ILAARRDEC, PGIN and the LGUs, DOST through PCAARRD’s STCBF Project, and local media outlets such as DWFB Radyo Pilipinas and DWCI Radyo Piddig. Information dissemination and technology promotion through deliberate extension services truly make it possible for community people to help them help themselves. #KSM
