"  This activity proved to be successful with over one hundred participants attended. Sensing a broader interest than they initially expected, most of those who attended are administrators, deans, chairpersons, and faculty members.

 

The prayer led by Ms. Rose Cornejo, PSITE-NCR secretary, invoked God's blessing on the proceedings to start the formalities. This was followed by an audio visual presentation of the National Anthem.  The welcoming Remarks were delivered by Dr. Samuel Chua, executive vice president of PSITE-NCR.  Ms. Ma. Carmela Racelis, president of PSITE-NCR, acknowledged the presence of the institutional representatives. She also reported about the accomplishments of the organization last school year 2013-2014.

Ms. Jasmin Niguidula, zonal director for Central Manila, and the high spirited emcee introduced the indefatigable speaker, Mr. Jonathan Caballero. The latter is the current chairperson of the computer science department in TIP-Manila, and the vice president-Internal of PSITE National.

 

Mr. Caballero shared the PSITE National's benchmarking experience with the selected universities in Indonesia, Hongkong, and Singapore.

He also mentioned about the significance of SEOUL Accord as a multi-lateral agreement among agencies responsible for accreditation or recognition of tertiary level computing and IT-related qualifications. Further, he spoke with emphasis on the role of PICAB in accreditation. He said that PICAB was founded by four computing and IT organizations with wide professional membership, namely, the Philippine Computer Society (PCS), as the lead organization, the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP ), the Philippines Society of IT Educators (PSITE), and the Philippine Software Industry Alliance (PSIA). He explained that PICAB will use Dynamic Accreditation Base for IT Education (DYNABITE) System.

Dr. Milani Austria , zonal director for Eastern Manila highlighted that PSITE-NCR will bestow prestigious awards to its deserving members. She announced the mechanics, and qualifications for the Most Outstanding IT Educator, Most Outstanding Individual Member, and Most Outstanding Institutional Member.

 

There would never have been such a positive response from the attendees if not for the generous support of the corporate sponsors. As a way of thanking them each of its representatives were given fifteen minutes to introduce their company, and update the participants about the latest technology they offer. These include Tech Factors Inc. and Headstart Business Solution, Power Mac Center, TRI.ph, Cosmotech, Converge Inc, and ATI.
