UPV TLRC celebrates 27th Anniversary Celebration

The University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) Teaching and Learning Resource Center (TLRC) is celebrating its 27th anniversary with a three-day series of activities, including an opening program held on 22 April 2024, open house, and pasalamat. Its anniversary theme is “Making Waves, Dreaming Better.”

In his opening message, Dr. Clement Camposano, Chancellor of UPV, challenged the TLRC staff to work closely with University stakeholders to elevate its services in light of emerging technologies today.

Dr. Alice Joan G. Ferrer, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, recalled what the TLRC was like during her time as a newly hired faculty of the University in her message.

TLRC OIC Director Asst. Prof. Katherine Valencia presented the accomplishments of the unit in 2023, which include seven major activities that enriched teaching and learning, 133 usage of the TLRC AVR and MILC AVR, and 2,520 computer usage of students, faculty, and staff. TLRC also had three collaborations with other UPV units, including the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the Human Resources Development Office. Their collaborations made the following possible: Seminar-Workshop on Institution of Minor Programs, Orientation for New Faculty Members, and Minor Program Curricular Proposals Writing Workshop.

The unit extended its gratitude to members of the faculty, who acted as resource speakers in its seminars and workshops. It also recognized the selfless contributions of TLRC’s 17 student tutors for the peer tutorial program, four of whom graduated with honors. In total, 18 tutees benefited from the program.

She also highlighted the services available at the TLRC, which include ring binding, printing and photocopying, the TLRC Bigtime Access Card, computer use, Studio, and lamination, all designed to help students in their academic requirements. Looking ahead, Valencia and the staff of TLRC aim to become UPV’s Center for Advancement of Teaching and Learning as a teaching and learning support unit.
