NSTP Diliman Resumes Program Mapping Initiative

Taking off from last year’s Program Mapping series, the National Service Training Program (NSTP) Diliman with NSTP Coordinators and Instructors held its first Program Mapping Workshop for the year last February 11, 2019 at the National Engineering Center, UP Diliman.

The two group outputs from the last workshop on November 19, 2018 were combined into one NSTP Program Map by NSTP Diliman. This was presented to the assembly at the beginning of the activity by NSTP Director Arlyn P. Macapinlac. With the purpose to review and refine the NSTP Program Map, Prof. Macapinlac led the commencement of the activity.

This was followed by the group workshop aimed to polish the program map. During the beginning of the workshop, it was determined that it would be easier to accomplish this goal if done by the whole congregation. The participants then proceeded to break out from their groups to listen to just one facilitator.

With the facilitation of Prof. Julienne Baldo-Cubelo, the NSTP Program Map was reviewed item by item, taking note of the words and concepts encapsulated in each row and column. Participation from the audience was lively. Prof. Rosella M. Torrecampo, Director of the Office for the Advancement of Teaching, was also invited to impart her expertise on the OBEdization of the NSTP Program Map. Suggestions and corrections were raised by Prof. Torrecampo on the spot.

At the end of the day, the NSTP Program Map was crafted and finished. NSTP Diliman will now be able to continue mapping the NSTP Common Module and NSTP Components: Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS), Literacy Training Service (LTS), and Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC).

These efforts are part of curriculum development of the National Service Training Program in UP Diliman. Coming up next is the NSTP Component Mapping Workshop in March.
