The University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development regularly offers seminar-workshops as part of its commitment to help upgrade the competencies of science and mathematics teachers and supervisors in the country. These courses provide an experiential base and motivation for further activity and learning in science and mathematics education for the teacher-participants through innovative and learner-centered teaching strategies. They aim to hone participants’ understanding of concepts, processes, and thinking skills in science and mathematics at the basic education level, as well as to increase their pedagogical content knowledge. UP NISMED can conduct specially designed seminar-workshops at other venues for a minimum of 15 trainees upon request. In such cases, the requesting party shall bear the cost of transportation and accommodation of the training staff. Arrangements, indicating the number of prospective trainees and proposed dates and venues, should be made with the Office of the Director.
