Last April 23, 2012, the PAP in partnership with Ateneo CORD sponsored a learning session entitled Writing for Media. The featured resource person was Roby Alampay, Editor of Interaksyon, TV5's news and information portal.  In the learning session, 33 participants were oriented on the difference between academic papers and media articles and how to shape articles based on their news values.  The session was in keeping with PAP's partnership with Interaksyon that aims to raise awareness for psychology and make Filipino psychologists more accessible to the public.


The PAP-Industrial/Organizational Psychology Division conducted simultaneous multi-stakeholder strategic planning sessions (titled PAIRALAN - Pagpapairal ng Planong  Pampaaralan: From Intended to Implemented) with the Ateneo Center  for Educational Devt (ACED) last April 21-22, 2012. Seventeen IO Division members and colleagues volunteered to facilitate the sessions with the 10 QC public high schools that included Balara HS, Camp Crame  HS, E. Rodriguez HS and Quirino HS among others. Facilitators were: Sally Caballero, Maria Vida Caparas, George Lu, Golda Crisostomo, Eugene Hontiveros, Doris dela Cruz, Susan Mostajo, Silfa Napicol, Emerico Rasing, Marivic Sanchez, Rodrigo Tomas, Agnes Montalbo, Joan Marasigan, Joy Calleja, Josephine Perez, Kay Dulay, and Raul Rodriguez.

Through the sessions, the principal, teachers, parents and barangay officials of each school were able to clarify their mission and vision, identify priority areas and goals based on an assessment of the school, and craft doable action plans that we hope to have considerable impact on the students.

Aside from facilitating the simultaneous sessions, the facilitators likewise gave important feedback on the program and will work with ACED to ensure that this will be improved for the succeeding runs (especially when we partner with them again in November).

This project was spearheaded by the Outreach Section of the IO Division headed by Sally Caballero and Marivic Sanchez.
