The President’s Message for the 49th BIOTA National Convention

The country’s changing educational landscape brought by the implementation of the K to 12 curriculum shift has challenged us teachers to re-examine our pedagogical practices and re-invent our classrooms. Despite some (initial) resistance from various stakeholders we are presently underway to formulating an enhanced, practical basic education curriculum that is deemed important as well as very timely for our country to continue in its economic progress. We as biology teachers and researchers are called to work in new, inventive, and creative ways in support of this shifting educational paradigm.
