"People are Process" is a term that
I coined to describe my approach to the human resource. It gives due respect to the person's dynamism and uniqueness, as an evolving individual.
In "developmental environments," as in a class room, or in a managerial or supervisory role, the facilitator/teacher/manager/supervisor approaches the person with utmost respect.
What do I want to teach? I teach the subject matter prescribed by the school.
How do I teach? I get my students to UNVEIL to me their learning aspirations. I have created a group process that enables them to hand these over to me on a "silver platter."
The rest is all FUN.
The Ateneo de Manila University gave me the "School of Science and Engineering
Dean's Award for Teaching Innovation" in 2002, for this methodology.
As they saw the effect on the students, the
"Ateneo Schools Parents Advisory Council" (ASPAC)
honored me with the
"Outstanding Part-time Teacher Award" in 2003.
My daughter, Tina Calasanz, studied my teaching methodology as she was taking her Master's Degree in Philosophy at the University of the Philippines. On March 16, 2002, she submitted her findings in a Paper to Dr Zosimo Lee, her Professor in Philosophy of Education, for which she received an "A" grade.
