Thirty (30) participants comprised of the administrators and professors teaching research subjects in Colegio San Agustin - Bacolod as well as guests from the University of San Agustin – Iloilo underwent Basic Research Ethics Training.Resource Speakers for the aforementioned were from the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB), an agency mandated by the country to ensure that research projects adhere to the universal principles for the protection of human participants via Section 12 of Republic Act No. 10532 also known as the “Philippine National Health Research System Act of 2013”. The resource speakers included Dr. Ricardo M. Manalastas, Jr., Chair of PHREB Committee on Information Dissemination, Training and Advocacy (PHREB-CIDTA), and Dr. Doris R. Benavides, Lecturer in Ethics Training through PHREB-CIDTA. The seminar aimed to guide the participants regarding the moral dimensions of research and prepare them on how to avoid, recognize and correct ethical issues when reviewing research protocols primarily to safeguard the human rights of the participants of research. Furthermore, National and International controls and guidelines for ethics in research, focusing on the institutional Research Ethics Committees (RECs) and the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB) were also presented.This two-day activity is in preparation for the formation and accreditation of the Research Ethics Committee of CSA-B which will be responsible in reviewing the ethical soundness of the research projects to be conducted by the students and faculty of the institution. This endeavor is one of the institution’s steps to uphold its Vision and Mission in developing moral and social values (“Virtus”) of the educative community while encouraging pursuit of wisdom (“Scientia”) through the conduct of research projects.[gallery size="medium" columns="2" ids="2400,2401,2402,2403"] [post_title] => Preparing Towards High Ethical Standards in the Conduct of Research Projects [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => preparing-towards-high-ethical-standards-in-the-conduct-of-research-projects [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-06-16 12:27:44 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-06-16 04:27:44 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://www.csab.edu.ph/portal/?p=2398 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )[1] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2336 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2017-04-11 10:37:23 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-04-11 02:37:23 [post_content] => Three Research and Development (R&D) Project proposals from the College of Engineering (COE) have been awarded with institutional research grants. Through a Memorandum of Agreement between CSA-B, represented by the School President Rev. Fr. Andrew P. Batayola, OSA, and its faculty researchers, the aforementioned R&D project teams have been provided with corresponding research fund and research loads for faculty researchers.One of the R&D project team is led by the Dean of the College of Engineering, Engr. Eduardo C. Leonor, together with Mrs. Elena Morales, COE faculty, and Mrs. Gladys Arceo, Guidance Associate. The said project involves the creation of a tool to assess the dominant brain functions of students and the development of a program designed to improve latent areas. Another R&D project is being conducted by a team led by Engr. Isabelo Ganaba, COE Area Head for Mechanical Engineering (ME), Engr. Fernando Emnace (ME Faculty) and Engr. Jeremiah Dearborn Gangoso, Computer Engineering (CPE) Faculty. The aforementioned R&D project team is currently engaged in the development of a solar powered cooler and heater designed specifically to reinforce learning in refrigeration application for mechanical engineering students. A wired and wireless network trainer appropriate to the learning needs of the computer engineering and information technology students is also currently being developed by Engr. Rodolfo Doromal, COE Area Head for Computer Engineering (CPE).Guided by their corresponding R&D project plan, the progress of the R&D project teams continue to be monitored by the Research and Planning Office led by its Director, Paolo Hilado RN, DRDM, MN, vis-à-vis the anticipated results for each specified activity.  To date, all the R&D project teams continue to meet predetermined milestones for their projects. The aforementioned R&D projects are geared toward further promoting efficiency by tapping the potentials of the educative community to further strengthen endogenous technologies. As it is funded by the institution, maximum utilization is sought after upon the accomplishment of the said projects.[otw_shortcode_info_box border_type="border-top-bottom" border_style="bordered" border_color="#dd9933"]The Editor reserves the right to accept or reject any article submitted for publication in the CSA-B website, and to edit submitted articles in any way deemed appropriate and necessary.

They were Sheena May B. Lampa, Ma. Elyn Grace L. Magan, Eleazae D. Sabbaluca and John Ryan E. Sale whose study was entitled"Web-Based Practicum Monitoring System" .Ranking second among the seven groups was a second BSIT group whose members were Carl Anthony Belarmino, Arlyn Mae L. Nalangan, Catherine P. Palmares, and Franshian Ann E. Pilaro, while ranking third were Engineering students, Michael Angelo S. Calvo, John P. Feria, and Kevin S. Arillo."This event is expected to impress in the minds of our students that research is more than just an academic requirement or a need for higher accreditation because research is a vital tool in the development of our country as we break away from the vicious cycle of technological laggard and develop our own superior technologies thus boost national efficiency for an innovation-driven economy. Research is what developed nations possess," says Paolo G. Hilado, Director of the Research and Planning Office.The research presenters will be given further opportunity to present their studies as part of the Augustinian Students Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Engagement (ASSURE) to be hosted by the University of San Agustin, while health-related researches will be presented during the Western Visayas Health Research Conference in October. Worthy research projects will also be published in the institutional journal, Ad Sapientiam, an annual publication of CSA-B with a national copyright.Mr. Hilado noted that the school has a potential for quality research projects for utilization to aid in further improving organizational processes, however, this potential has to be further unlocked. Research ethics is another concern which has led Mr. Hilado to form a research committee during the forthcoming academic year. "Our school is determined to have its own Research Ethics Committee by the next academic year and to have it accredited by the Philippine Research Ethics Board mandated by the Philippine Government under the Section 12 of Republic Act 10532," adds Mr. Hilado.The panel of notable evaluators for the said research contest were Lerma D. Paris, RMT, MSPH, Research Manager of Western Visayas Health Research and Development Consortium (WVHRDC); Dr. Carmelo V. Ambut, Executive Director of Western Visayas Consortium on Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (WVCIEERD), Dr. Dennis R. Reobueno, Chief Specialist of Commission on Higher Education Negros Island Region (CHED NIR), and Rev. Fr. Tito D. Soquino, O.S.A.The research contest was established in order to give emphasis on researches benefiting the institution and the society, to highlight "Outcome-based research" and the importance of research ethics, and to serve as a venue for confidence-building in preparing students for research presentations in the provincial, regional and national levels.-- As reported by David S.
