Four groups of students and professors from Notre Dame of Marbel University’s College of Education (CED) presented their research papers at the 2nd National Multidisciplinary Research Conference on March 16, 2019, at Tagaytay Country Hotel.

Themed “Sustaining the Power of Research for Innovation and Development in the Academe and Field Practice,” the event was organized by Olivarez College’s Center for Research Development and Publications.

In an audience of 200 students, academicians, and field practitioners from several disciplines, the delegates of CED discussed their studies on parallel sessions, particularly on physical education.

Rogelio Villa, Kent Peter Cuadrado, and Seth Bryan Escleto explored their research titled “Development and Evaluation of Module in Cheer Dance.”

On the study “Digital Tools in Teaching Indoor Sports for Grade 9,” Louise Claudette Ducase, Johann Paolo Romero, and Karel Allaine Paba explicated their findings.

Meanwhile, Lyka Esteban presented the paper “Development of Module in Sakuting Dance.”

NDMU-CED professors Liezl Gandola also attended to present her research titled Multimedia-Supported Module in Physical Education Course on Health and Rhythmic Activities.

The groups of Villa and Ducase sought the expertise of Analyn Cabatingan, PhD as their research adviser. Dr. Cabatingan also personally showed her support to her students.

The national conference featured activities such as plenary sessions, networking, parallel paper presentations, professional sharing, research collaborations, and speeches.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Maricar S. Prudente, a scientist, professor, researcher, and administrator. She sits as a Member of the Governing Board and Chairperson of Division 1 (Educational Governmental, and International Policies) of the Department of Science and Technology’s National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP).

Olivarez College will sustain their advocacy on research and innovation on the 3rd National Multidisciplinary Conference 2020 on March 14, 2020, at the campus in Parañaque City. The theme for the conference is “Research Collaboration in a New Dimension: Building Opportunity, Bridging Diversity.”
