Romblon State U hosts 5th STIRDC Conference
THERE WERE six government universities and colleges in Region 4B joined the conference, with 54 technical papers accepted, 43 papers presented, including 23 posters viewed. and with one host – Romblon State University – Main Campus in Odiongan, Province of Romblon.
One of the invited guests from a regional agency inspired the participants by sharing her thoughts on the significance of doing researches. She gave it thru the acronym – RESEARCH! R=esponsibility, E=xcellence, S=cholarly, E=nhancement, A=cceptability, R=einvent, C=areer, and H=eart. But one of the moderators suggested that letters E and R could be added in the word and become RESEARCHER, because the last two letters stand for E=xtension (collaboration with various stakeholders), and R=ecognition or rewards (motivation to do and share).
