TWO RESIDENT Thomasian researchers were named “research fellows” by the society of researchers in the Philippines during its 20th anniversary last May 19 at the Centro Escolar University in Manila.

Emily Tan and Allan De Guzman were named “research fellows” — the highest distinction given by Philippine Society for Educational Research and Evaluation — as a tribute to their significant contributions for the advancement of educational research frontiers through numerous publications.

In fact, one of Tan’s works titled “Research Experiences of Undergraduate Students of a Compulsive University” was published in the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education last year.

Tan said the study was intended to provide information on the experiences of undergraduate students.

“Our contributions were geared towards improvement of research management and mentoring. We aimed to enhance the research environment for the improvement of thinking, research, communication, writing, presentation and relational skills, as well as some personal values,” she said.

De Guzman, meanwhile, received the Jasper Research Award given by the Government of Canada and the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization for his paper “Creating Space for Legitimate Participation of Youth in Education for Sustainability through Service Learning: Toward a ‘liberatory praxis’ for Pedagogy of Sustainability.” It is a study on the impact of a changing education landscape on sustainable development.
The event saw the launching of the Asian Journal for Educational Research and Synergy, a brainchild of De Guzman, with Commission on Higher Education commissioner Nona Ricafort. With reports from Darenn G. Rodriguez
