Paper Abstract / Summary:

The curriculum review evaluates the nine areas of the curriculum, namely:  objectives, administration, faculty, curricular program, instructional facilities, laboratory, library, community involvement and practicum.   A Likert scale of four points was used for the responses which ranged from:  3.26 – 4.00 (Very Extensive);  2.51 – 3.25 (Extensive);  1.76 – 2.50  (Less Extensive); and 1.00 – 1.75 (Least Extensive) 

The analysis of the summaries of the different curricular programs on their curriculum reviews revealed the following:           

The objectives of the programs of AB ELT, Agricultural Engineering, Agriculture and Forestry, BEEd and BS Mechanical Engineering were considered excellent.  The objectives of those programs were very extensive.  

The administration component of the Agriculture and Forestry, AB English Language Teaching, Agricultural Engineering, BS Office Administration were considered as very extensive.   The AB ELT, BS Mathematics, BS Commerce, Master in Nursing, and Master in Business Administration have very extensive faculty force.  However, the AB Pol Sci and BS HRM have the lowest curriculum ratings in the area of faculty.     The curricular programs BS Agricultural Engineering, BS Commerce, Master in Nursing and Master in Public Administration were very extensive.  However, the programs of AB Pol Sci, Dentistry, and BS Mechanical Engineering have less extensive curriculum program. 

The instructional facilities of the AB ELT, BS Office Administration and BS Biological Science were considered as very extensive.  However, the instructional facilities of the Dentistry, BS Electrical Engineering and Medical Technology should be examined as the evaluations of the faculty members and the students revealed the lowest ratings in this aspect of curriculum review.         

The programs of BS Office Administration and BS Computer Engineering  have very extensive laboratories.  The AB ELT, MAN and MN programs have very extensive library holdings in terms of textbooks and references.  But, the BSHRM library collections were considered as less extensive, indicating the need to improve their library collections.

The objectives of some identified curricular programs can be enhanced through dissemination of objectives not only among the faculty members but as well as the students and the stakeholders. 

The curriculum can be focused on creating a policy for the department to enter into consortium arrangement for the sharing of expertise of the faculty members and for facilities.    The faculty load assignment  should not be more than four (4) preparations, send faculty members to seminars and trainings to update them with the latest trends of teaching methods, and encourage the faculty members to increase their involvement in research and extension activities. 

The monitoring of the sequencing of subjects, revising the curriculum based on the demands of the course and perceptions of the stakeholders and industries were some of the proposed actions to be taken by the different colleges in addressing their curricular programs.  The instructional materials should incorporate the students’ values of leadership, integrity, accountability and responsibility.  Instructions can be supplemented through industry visits and seminars.  

The instructional facilities should provide for the maximum utilization of information technology in the instruction and requesting state of the art equipment such as the UTM for the Engineering.  Furthermore, providing a separate room for students undertaking research and strengthening internet connection especially during the weekends can be added means of improving instructional facilities. 

Requesting for updating of library holdings, subscription to journals and periodicals and providing e-library were noted as the suggested means of keeping continuous improvement of the library resources.   

Researches and extension activities should be geared towards the attainment of the curriculum objectives.  The faculty members and students should also be encouraged to submit their research findings and output in the academic journals.  The evaluations revealed that there is a need to strengthen linkages with industries and other institutions, implement assessment of students, revise and implement competency assessments for students undertaking practicum and implement portfolio assessment in the evaluation.
