C & E Publishing, Inc. has signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the Philippine Association of Schools of Medical Technology (PASMETH) on September 28 at the C & E Information and Resource Center in Quezon City for the development of eight new curriculum-aligned medical technology textbooks.

Mary Grace Eugenio, C & E product management division head and Dr. Aurora Zuñiga, product management unit head and consultant signed the MoA with Dr. Bernard Ebuen, PASMETH president, and Dr. Jose Jurel Nuevo, PASMETH vice president.

Under the agreement, C & E will have the exclusive rights to publish and distribute the eight new titles to be written by PASMETH’s duly selected members in accordance with the new course content for medical technology approved by the Commission on Higher Education. C & E will also sponsor a three-day textbook writing workshop for the authors in Baguio City in November as part of the textbook development program.

“This is a big opportunity for us to develop books authored by known professionals in the academe,” said Eugenio who was grateful that PASMETH entrusted C & E with the project which is in line with the latter’s commitment to promoting academic and professional excellence through quality educational resources.

To be completed during the K to 12 transition years of 2016—2017 and 2017—2018 when there will be few freshmen enrollees in higher education institutions, Ebuen considers the project as an opportunity for the professional development of faculty members.

“We should not stop from moving forward and we should take this challenge and turn it into an opportunity for us to enhance the capability of our faculty members especially that there are eight courses that would be included in our new curriculum,” said Ebuen. “Hopefully, this [project] will be materialized as soon as possible because we are planning to start the training of faculty members next year,” he added.

Witnesses to the MoA signing were Dr. Nini F. Lim, PASMETH treasurer; Prof. Petrona Benitez, PASMETH auditor; Prof. Celia Roslin, PASMETH press relations officer; Dr. Rogelio Cruz, Dr. Antonio Lim Jr., Ferdinand Mortel, and Prof. Mark Raymund Nava, PASMETH board directors; Prof. Magdalena Natividad, PASMETH ex-officio member; Rene Mupas, C & E’s assistant vice president for higher education; Malou Baticolon, C & E’s higher education senior sales manager for the National Capital Region and Luzon; Renato Gomez and Rowena Bermudez, C & E’s key accounts managers; Lourdes Lopez, C & E’s consultant for local publications in higher education; and Christine Samonte and Jehu Nimrod Chaingan, C & E’s project officers for higher education.

Also present were medical technology professors from PASMETH member schools Centro Escolar University-Makati, College of the Holy Spirit, De La Salle Health Science Institute, Our Lady of Fatima University-Pampanga, University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, and University of Santo Tomas, who will serve as authors of the textbooks alongside PASMETH officers Ebuen, Nuevo, N. Lim, Benitez, Roslin, Cruz, A. Lim, Mortel, Nava, and Natividad.

Prior to the signing of the MoA, an introduction to the textbook development process led by Zuñiga and an orientation on copyright law facilitated by Alvin Buenaventura, executive director of the Filipinas Copyright Licensing Society, Inc. (FILCOLS), were held.

Founded in 1970, PASMETH is the national organization of all recognized schools offering degrees in medical laboratory science (medical technology) and public health in the Philippines.

C & E Publishing, Inc. received a Gintong Aklat (Golden Book) award for Fundamentals of Pediatrics: Competency-based in the Natural and Applied Sciences category. The two-volume textbook was recognized in the opening of the 37th Manila International Book Fair at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on September 14.

Launched in September 2014, the book is the first contemporary, locally authored reference material on comprehensive health care for Filipino newborns, infants, children, and adolescents published since the release of the fourth and last edition of the pioneer pediatrics book in 2000. Its editors were Drs. Xerxes Navarro, Aurora Bauzon, Juliet Aguilar, and Olympia Malanyaon.

Fundamentals of Pediatrics was among 395 entries this year. Entries for the Natural and Applied Sciences category were assessed according to the book’s contribution to the field of study, accuracy of content, and depth of research. The judges were Dr. Fidel Nemenzo, vice chancellor of the University of the Philippines Diliman Office of Research and Development, and Dr. Marilou Nicolas, former dean of the University of the Philippines Manila College of Science.

Teresa Maria Custodio, chair of the board of judges of Gintong Aklat Awards 2016, explained that all aspects of bookmaking are considered in choosing the winners: production, design, and content. She emphasized the importance of narrative which shows how effectively the medium carries the message and delivers it to its intended audience. “Design should support content—it is a science,” Custodio said.

Organized by the Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP), the Gintong Aklat Awards are given every two years to outstanding publishers.

“The entirety of a book—its merit in all aspects of production—is the mark of an outstanding publisher,” said BDAP President Ani Rosa Almario in Filipino during her opening remarks.

The award has seven categories, namely Literature in Filipino, Literature in English, Food, Arts and Culture, Social Sciences, Natural and Applied Sciences, and Inspiration and Self-help. It also confers a Best Book Design award.

Tailored for medical students, residents, pediatricians, and healthcare practitioners who engage in child care, Fundamentals of Pediatrics has been endorsed by the Association of Philippine Medical Colleges Foundation as a valuable reference in all local medical schools and as a review material for licensure examinees.

Copies of the textbook are available at all C & E Bookshop branches nationwide. For orders or inquiries, interested parties may call tel. no. (632) 929 5088 or email C & E at customerservice@cebookshop.com.

Miriam College launches graduate certificate course on e-learning

Miriam College, in partnership with C & E Publishing, Inc., launched the Integrating Technology in Education to Advance Change (iTEACh) Program, a five-day graduate certificate course on e-learning, last May 31 at the C & E Information and Resource Center in South Triangle, Quezon City.

Designed for school administrators, teachers, curriculum designers, information and communication technology specialists, librarians, and media services staff, the certificate course introduced digital and mobile learning as the new platform that supports educational innovation in the 21st century. The course included e-learning experts’ lectures and hands-on workshops on the principles and practices vital to technology integration in education.

“We at Miriam College realized that there has been a continuous demand for training in e-learning to make e-learning products and services really more relevant,” Dr. Edizon Fermin, basic education unit director and high school principal of Miriam College, said during the participants’ orientation. He lamented the fact that many educational softwares developed by Filipino computer programmers are underappreciated and wasted due to the inadequacy of many educators in 21st century-teaching.

The iTEACh Program is equivalent to three academic units and part of Miriam College’s graduate degree program Master in Education major in e-Learning, a 43-unit, non-thesis diploma course which can be completed in two academic years. Participants of the certificate course who will enroll in the graduate program in the first semester from August to December 2016 will be exempted from taking the major subject “Learning and Teaching with Mobile Technology.”

Fermin, together with Marion Jude Gorospe, coordinator of the Summer Institute on Technology in Education Project of Miriam College, led the team of lecturers and workshop facilitators. Other resource speakers were Alma Gorospe from Marist School, as well as Raysel Evarem Palisoc, Lyle Fernandez, Florante Belardo, Jomar Aries Laurente, Justin Josef Villano, Kenan Jairus Quitco, Mary Ann Lascano, and Mon Ritchie Bacero from Miriam College.

Participants commended the joint initiative of Miriam College and C & E Publishing, Inc. in providing a free certification program for educators. “It was a fun new experience. Thank you and hopefully, this is not the last time that Miriam College and C & E Publishing are going to offer such an opportunity to us,” Anthony Ferrer from Bader International School in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia said on behalf of the participants.

Miriam College was recently granted a five-year autonomous status by the Commission on Higher Education. It is the only higher education institution in the Philippines that offers a major in e-learning in its masteral program in education. Over the course of five years, it has produced 21 e-learning research projects and 34 training specialists. A total of 439 teachers and 1,881 students have undergone its e-learning program.

C & E launches new edition of late WWII veteran’s memoir

Jointly with C & E Publishing, Inc., the family of the late Col. Eliseo Rio, author of Rays of a Setting Sun: Recollections of World War II, held the launching of the book’s new edition last April 5 at the Dimalupig Hall of the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Officers Club at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City.

First published in 1999 by the De La Salle University Press, the book is Col. Rio’s eyewitness account of the events that occurred during World War II, particularly the reverberations of the bombing of Camp John Hay in Baguio City on December 8, 1941; the heroic stand of the Filipino and American combatants on Bataan; the guerrilla campaign in the Visayas; and the surrender of the Japanese military contingent on Panay in 1945. With foreword by Rodolfo Biazon, former AFP chief of staff and senator, the book narrates as well the pivotal role of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) officers in the native resistance against the Japanese occupation.

The new edition includes U.S. Army Col. Kearie L. Berry’s handwritten notes on the “Battle of the Pockets” where Filipino and American soldiers defeated more than a thousand Japanese soldiers leading to the forced retreat of the enemy forces. Berry was the commander of the 3rd Infantry Regiment, 1st Regular Division of the Philippine Army until the first week of February 1942 when he took over the command of the 1st Regular Division from Gen. Fidel V. Segundo who was designated as the commanding general of another unit.

Rio was one of the cadets of PMA Class of 1942 who were commissioned ahead of schedule to the 1st Regular Division of the Philippine Army together with the Class of 1943 when the war broke out. He fought bravely in Bataan and escaped fortuitously when it fell into enemy hands; became a guerrilla leader in Panay; and served 21 years in the military. He died in June 2004.

Special guests provided impressions of the author and insights into the book. They were Dr. Benito Legarda, Jr., economist and historian; Dr. Maria Serena Diokno, chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines; Ret. Lt. Gen. Ernesto Carolina, administrator of the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office; Dr. Roberto de Ocampo, chairman and chief executive officer of the Philippine Veterans Bank; Ret. Col. Vicente Alhambra of the PMA Class of 1942; and Alejandro Padilla, senior editor and management consultant for higher education of C & E Publishing, Inc. and former editor-in-chief of De La Salle University Press. Ma. Estela Pedrosa, Ret. Gen. Eliseo Rio, Jr., and Ma. Elisela Vitriolo, three of Rio’s seven children, also delivered messages during the gathering.

Copies of the book are now available at all C & E Bookshop branches nationwide. For orders or inquiries, call telephone no. (632) 929 5088 or e-mail C & E at customerservice@cebookshop.com.
