ITE Faculty Immersion Models

As part of the requirement of CHED Memo 53, Series of 2006 that at least 20% of the ITE faculty must have IT industry experience within the last five (5) years, the Technical Committee- Government Academe Industry Linkage (TC-Gail) of the Technical Panel for Information Technology Education (TPITE) identified seven (7) Immersion Models during their Focus Group discussions in Makati and Davao with industry players and the academe. These Models will also be presented and validated during their zonal consultations in Bacolod, Baguio and NCR. The identified immersion models will depend on the capability, capacity and economic environment of the locality where the school is located.

ITE faculty immersion models - is a good idea for our university to produce not just good employees but as highly competitive employers in the near future. I hope this project would achieve its goals not only for the benefit of students but also for the benefit of the entire society.
