Microsoft Academic Roadshow (Iloilo)

Every summer break, we conduct our Microsoft Academic Roadshow.  We visit a region and conduct trainings for faculty, giving them new courseware they can deliver when classes start.  This summer, we headed for Iloilo in Region 6 and trained trainors on two new course offerings: PHP on Windows (May 18-20) and Application Lifecycle Management with VSTS (May 21-23).  The event was organized by the Philippine Society of IT Educators (PSITE) Region 6 and the Iloilo Federation for I.T. (IFIT), and was hosted by Central Philippine University.

 

There were 55 participants from 14 schools all over Region 6 and guests from the Iloilo city government.  All faculty participants and the classes they will be teaching will be given FREE access to Microsoft software through MSDNAA-ELMS (aside from the complete training kits).

Many thanks to our friends, organizers and hosts for the generous hospitality you extended.  Special thanks to Rodney Gicana (CPU/PSITE6) and Bilson dela Fuente (USA/IFIT).  The food was overwhelming (I gained 5 pounds!).

Watch out for our next Academic Roadshow this semestral break (October-November).  Please visit our Faculty Connection portal (http://www.microsoft.com/faculty) and check out the new training materials you could freely download and use in your class.
