The National Fisheries Research and Development Institute’s Training Division (NFRDI-TD) has recently conducted a successful virtual workshop on Developing Modules for NFRDI Trainings last June 25-26 and 29. The activity was attended by personnel of NFRDI, BFAR- National Freshwater Fisheries Technology Center (BFAR-NFFTC) in Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, and BFAR-Batangas Inland Fisheries Technology Outreach Station (BFAR-BIFTOS) in Batangas who have been resource persons of trainings conducted by NFRDI-TD.

Participants were asked for “fan sign” pledges, which contained target dates of completion for their training modules

Ms. Cyrenes M. Moncawe and Ms. Lea Mae S. Dela Cruz of NFRDI-TD were the lecturers of the workshop. They attended DA-Agricultural Training Institute’s (DA-ATI) Training on Module Development in Baguio City in April 2018, and they shared what they’ve learned to potential module developers of NFRDI and BFAR. Topics discussed during the lecture were the basic concepts of module development and the standard format used by DA-ATI, while practical session of the workshop consisted of actual drafting of the modules by the participants.

Participants’ outputs were presented and were commented by Mr. Francisco F. Santos, NFRDI-TD’s Training Section Chief, Dr. Mudjekeewis D. Santos, Scientist II and OIC of NFRDI-TD, and Dr. Rex Traifalgar, Director of UPV’s College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.

As part of the workshop activity and to achieve completion of the draft modules, the participants were asked for “fan sign” pledges which contained target dates of completion for their modules. (LMDelaCruz)
