Caliwan of accountancy discusses teachers’ roles and responsibilities in central Visayas region

Asst. Prof. Francisco M. Caliwan, Jr., Assistant Dean of the UST-AMV College of Accountancy, delivered a lecture on The Roles and Responsibilities of Accounting Teachers during the Education Forum of Central Visayas Region held on March 9, 2024, at the Cebu Institute of Technology, Cebu City. 

In his lecture, Caliwan enumerated the different responsibilities of a teacher inside the classroom, which are grounded in the trifocal functions of a university: teaching and learning, community service, and research. He discussed that teachers have instructional, research, and service tasks. 

For instructional tasks, Caliwan mentioned that teachers are responsible for effectively and efficiently delivering teaching and learning inside the classroom. He also discussed that inside the classroom, teachers wear the hats of facilitators, assessors, and trainers. For the research tasks, he remarked that teachers should actively engage in creative and scholarly pursuits, conduct research studies related to the courses handled, and help students develop research skills. Finally, for service tasks, he emphasized that teachers are responsible for participating in the college’s outreach programs, supporting programs that respond to the needs of society, and advocating for sustainability. 

Caliwan is one of the four speakers of the forum, alongside Hon. Maria Teresita Z. Dimaculangan, Member of the Professional Regulatory Board of Accountancy (BOA), who delivered a number of BOA updates; Mr. Lucky Cimatu, P&A Grant Thornton Senior Managing Consultant for Sustainability and Climate, who discussed Becoming a Catalyst of Sustainability; and Ms. Rose Dale Ando, Assurance Partner of Price Waterhouse Coopers Philippines who discussed updates on International Financial Reporting Standards. 

The Central Visayas Regional Forum is the sixth installment of the regional fora organized by the National Association of CPAs in Education.
