Training for Research Trainers

The RU conducts training workshop for research trainers to empower the university faculty to become effective research leaders in their respective field of expertise. The capability development activity consists of twelve (12) outcomes-based modules which strengthen the technical research skills of BukSU faculty vis-à-vis sessions on writing publishable papers and new research methodologies, among others.

As of July, 2019, the RU is on its 2nd Batch of Trainees for the Training for Research Trainers. This TOT is designed for the mentees to become research mentors themselves. New research methodologies are also introduced. Dr. Roberto N. Padua, Former CHED Commissioner and BukSU Research Consultant, is the resource person of the TOT.
