The Asian University Digital Resource Network (AUDRN) held its 2nd National Convention and 3rd Conference last July 23-24 at the University of St. La Salle in Bacolod. It carried the theme “Local Knowledge in the Face of the ASEAN Integration 2015.”

It was a gathering that inspired so much courage for schools to push for local knowledge initiatives in the mainstream as a way of making them competitive in the global market.

Miriam College was at the forefront of this very important and relevant discussion, which focused on the regional and local challenges during the ASEAN integration transition. More importantly, the school was able to share its best practices by way of innovative and new modalities for learning thereby trailblazing new paths and directions in education. 

Dr. Rosario O. Lapus, Miriam College and AUDRN president, together with Dr. Maria Lourdes Quisumbing-Baybay, AUDRN executive director, led an impressive delegation composed of heads of schools, scholars, local knowledge advocates, and practitioners from AUDRN’s 21-partner universities and colleges. Dr. Lapus, as outgoing AUDRN president, was elected Board Member representing Luzon.

Dr. Edizon Fermin, Basic Education Unit director and High School principal was the plenary speaker during the 2nd day of the conference and delivered a highly informative and revelatory “state of the Philippine Education” address in his paper entitled, “Agos at Unos ng Hunos: Situating Senior High School (SHS) in the ASEAN Context.” 

The Center for Strategic Research Director, Dr. Joey Q. Alagaran presented a paper entitled, “Explore, Engage, Empower:  Integrating Media and Information Literacy for Sustainable Development in the Communication Education Curriculum.”

Four members of the High School faculty presented their papers as well during the parallel paper presentations. The  papers were: Localizing the International: Teaching Social Studies in Miriam College High School by James Marc J. Catudan; Prospectives of the Female STEM Students in the Philippines by Florante C. Belardo; Ang Buhay ng mga Tauhan sa Labas ng Pahina by Salvador Biglaen; and Delivering School-based Library and Information Services through Free Web Tools by Jude Gorospe.
