What is research?  For me, it has become the lens by which I view the world and all its complexities.

Research has…   … opened my eyes to the harsh realities faced by our countrymen who live in poverty  … shown me that there is still hope for our beloved country because there are enough people who care

Poverty in our country   In 2006, there were 27.61 million poor Filipinos (32% of the population)  45% lived on less than $2.00 / day; 22.6%, on less than $1.25 / day  About 4.0 million households (or 21.2% of families) experienced involuntary hunger at least once in the past three months (Sources: NSCB, 2010; World Bank, 2008; and SWS, 2010)

 “So massive and pervasive is poverty in our country that our response to it cannot be small.” - Tony Meloto, Gawad Kalinga founder; recipient of the 2006 Magsaysay Award for Community Leadership; recognized as ‘Social Entrepreneur of the Year, Philippines’ by the Schwab Foundation in 2010

Some of my research   More than just a housing problem: Learning from Gawad Kalinga’s experience  Gawad Kalinga: Innovation in the city (and beyond)  Innovation of Gawad Kalinga: Managing partnerships of meaning  The economic and artistic flows of Gawad Kalinga

Some of my research   Corporate social initiatives in the Philippines: Experiences of four major corporations  Shifting philanthropic motives: Shell’s corporate social initiatives in the Philippines  Preserving paradise: Shell’s sustainable development programs in the Philippines

Bayanihan  A spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective. From the Filipino word bayan, which refers to a nation, country, town or community. Similar concepts in other countries Gotong-royong (Indonesia / Malaysia) Dugnad (Norway) Barn raising (Rural North America) Talkoot (Finland)

Research has…  …allowed me to travel and see the world In Berlin, Germany (2012) In Seoul, South Korea (2010)

A challenge to teach   Students have short attention spans.  Very few students have developed the habit of reading. Students just don’t want to read!  For many, research is seen as difficult, timeconsuming, and even threatening.

Creative research   Utilize creative, non-conventional techniques.  Encourage the use of information technology and social media.  Design research assignments as a social, rather than as an individual, activity.  Provide detailed feedback and technical guidance.  Set high standards. Expect nothing less.

Integral human development  Forms of well-being Description Bodily development The physical structure of the workplace and the design of work processes and equipment are calculated to protect employees’ health and to respect their overall, physical well-being. Cognitive development Employees’ expected contributions to the work-process are made intelligible to them; jobs are kept “smart” to exercise and develop employees’ talents and skills; overall, employees’ cognitive abilities are matched to proportionately challenging work. Emotional development Through the freedom to take initiative without fear of reprisal, employees exercise responsibility and accept accountability for their work. Social development Internally, the organization encourages appropriate expressions of collegiality; the organization exhibits a “social conscience,” encourages the same in employees, and supports employees’ initiatives in the direction of service to the wider community.

Integral human development  Forms of well-being Description Aesthetic development Craftsmanship is encouraged, and within the limits prescribed by their uses, products are designed and manufactured with an eye for beauty, elegance and harmony with nature; services are conceived and delivered in ways that honor the human dignity of both the provider and the receiver. Moral development The organization’s managerial practices and work-rules recognize that human acts are as such moral acts; working relationships of every kind should demonstrate respect for human dignity of each party to them. Spiritual development Work is understood as a vocation, and valued as collaboration, in the presence of God, for the good of one’s fellow human beings. Source: Alford and Naughton (2004)

Self-reflection  The human development flower  Using the integral human development framework as your guide, assess your personal well-being by drawing a flower, with each petal representing one form of well-being. A large petal means that form of well-being is nurtured well, while a small petal means that form of well-being has not been adequately nurtured.  Answer the following: (a) Which forms of well-being are being nurtured in school? (b) Which forms of well-being could have been nurtured further?

Integral human development  Forms of well-being Description Bodily development My health and physical well-being are nurtured in school. Cognitive development My critical thinking and analytical skills are nurtured in school. Generally, lessons challenge me intellectually. Emotional development I feel free to express myself in class, without fear of being ridiculed. I take full responsibility for my actions. Social development My social well-being is nurtured in school. There are opportunities for healthy interaction with my school mates even outside of the classroom. Aesthetic development My artistic talents are nurtured in school. I am involved in creative activities (e.g. visual arts, literature, music, and the performing arts). Moral development My moral well-being is nurtured in school. I am taught to be mindful of the rights of others, and to treat others with respect and kindness. Spiritual development My spiritual well-being is nurtured in school. There are opportunities to reflect upon life’s higher purpose. Material development I have the means to acquire the materials things that I need and desire.
