For the writing workshop on instructional design using genderized approach, participants were divided into three disciplines: social sciences, humanities/languages and math/science and technology. Prof. Lacsamana joined the humanities/languages group, Prof. Villanueva was assigned with the math/science and technology group and Prof. Vicente, Ms. Gamo and Ms. Asalan worked with the faculty for the social sciences.

An echo seminar will be organized by the PCCR delegates for the faculty members of the College of Criminology and the General Education Division to share the insights learned. This will be the first step towards a new and genderized set of syllabi for the Bachelor of Science in Criminology curriculum for the academic year 2018-2019.
