Anihan Faculty Development

Anihan Faculty Morphing with Whole Brain Thinking

The Anihan Technical School, its faculty and administrators, had a professional development training titled: “Whole Brain Development and Demystifying Goals and Aspirations”, last August 7, 2018. The objective of this workshop was to improve teaching strategies, as well as illuminate queries and challenges that each of the faculty members is facing. The guest speakers gave special attention to the strategies, challenges and possible advantages one can acquire with the help of the Whole Brain Thinking Theory.

The training-workshop was conducted by Mr. Olwen Abergas, Master Teacher from the New York City Board of Education. This is the third year that Mr. Abergas has been sharing his professional expertise to the Anihan faculty as part of his personal commitment to social responsibility.

Principles of the Whole Brain Thinking Theory were imparted by Mr. Chip de Guzman, University of the Philippines-Baguio Faculty. The model of Whole Brain Thinking was developed by Ned Herrmann. Whole Brain® Thinking is a methodology designed to help thinkers, teams and organizations better benefit from all of the thinking available to them. It acknowledges that while different tasks require different mental processes, and different people prefer different kinds of thinking, organizations will get better results when they can strategically leverage the full spectrum of thinking available (Herrmann 2015). 

Overall, the workshop was an eye-opening experience to all. Teaching problems and challenges of the faculty were answered. It was demonstrated how mistakes, when well-accepted, are the key to correction: it allows both teachers and students to explore the process of learning.
