Committed to knowledge sharing for other higher education institutions (HEIs), Dr. Leomar S. Galicia served as resource speaker for the online seminar themed “Intensifying research culture: facing adversities and maximizing opportunities amidst global pandemic” which was held by the Polytechnic University of the Philippines-Sta.Rosa Campus last February 19, as part of the celebration of its 18th Founding Anniversary.
In his virtual talk, Dr. Galicia covered research culture and its nature, stating that it encompasses the behaviors, values, expectations, attitudes and norms of research community. He also covered characteristics that facilitate research productivity which include institutional, individual and leadership levels. He then zeroed in on the advantages of researching during the pandemic, some of which cover ease of data gathering, increased publication opportunities and collaboration becoming a norm.
Contextualizing adversity quotient in the global contagion, the Research Director of UPHSL-Biñan Campus also underscored the value of developing transversal skills (also called soft skills) which include research strategies, adaptability, team working and communication which he argued to be “timely and timeless.” He also stressed that “Filipinos are so resilient that we can weather the storms of life, both literally and figuratively.”
In the next part of his online discourse, he exemplified ways to create and intensify research culture and the quality objectives supporting it, specifying research capability, research productivity, research dissemination and research utilization. He argued that elevating research culture of an academic community necessitates interconnectedness and constant realization of these objectives.
Interjected in the entirety of Dr. Galicia’s talk is his position that a strong research culture entails a commendable working synergy, collaboration and participation of school leaders, faculty, non-teaching staff and students in order to create institutions of basic and higher learning that champion scientific inquiry and empirical data in their operations and informed decision making towards local and national development.
