Cotabato City (September 14, 2020)—The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) and the Development Academy of the Philippines – Graduate School of Public and Development Management (DAP-GSPDM) concluded the final and fourth Curriculum Co-Development Workshop on Friday, September 11, 2020.
The said workshop was intended for the curriculum development of Master in Public Management Major in Regional and Local Governance and Development (MPM-RLGD) program for BARMM senior officials, and was in collaboration with DAP sa Mindanao (DsM).
“It was the 4th and last co-development workshop between BARMM and DAP, in which we discussed the syllabi for the major courses of the would-be scholars,” BARMM Cabinet Secretary Mohd Asnin Pendatun, who also served as reactor in the workshop, noted.
Courses on Muslim Governance, Post-Conflict Reconstruction, Public Safety, and Peacebuilding, Human Security and Sustainable Development, Regional and Local Governance, Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations, Program Administration, Productivity, and Quality Management, and Strategic Human Resource Management and Development were presented during Friday’s workshop.
Pendatun explained that the major courses presented were specifically designed to reflect the Bangsamoro context.
“This partnership of BARMM and DAP is also part of the 12 Point Priority Agenda on strengthening bureaucracy and institution building of BARMM. This is technically a program of the Office of the Chief Minister (OCM),” he added.
He further said that BARMM will soon launch the MPM-RLGD program for BARMM senior officials, where at least 35 participants from the BARMM ministries and offices will be selected to partake in the said ladderized program.
“The people we hope to include in this program are those who will help ensure that our bureaucracy will be stable and progressive,” Pendatun stressed.
Certificate and diploma will be given to scholars who will finish the core and major courses, while the Master’s Degree will be confered to those who finish the Action Plan Project (APP), which is equivalent to a thesis paper.
The first leg of the workshop, which started March 2020, focused on the finalization of the course objectives, design, and framework. The second workshop covered conceptualizing moral governance or towards moral governance agenda, while the third tackled the core courses.
