Empowering Excellence: System Research Colloquium and Sharing of Best Practices

The 2023 JBLFMU Research Colloquium & Sharing of Best Practices took center stage on January 12, 2023. This illuminating event, hosted by JBLFMU-Molo, was a key highlight during the commemoration of JBLFMU’s 75th Foundation Anniversary. Proudly representing JBLCF-Bacolod, a contingent of 20 participants actively engaged in the proceedings.

The first segment of the program, the Research Colloquium, featured a trio of JBLFMU Graduate School alumni presenting their research papers. The intellectual discourse enriched the atmosphere, fostering an environment of shared insights and discoveries.

Dr. Elisa V. Garcia, representing JBLCF-Bacolod, seamlessly transitioned into the subsequent Sharing of Best Practices session. Her presentation, titled “Research Made Easy: Streamlined Approaches for Literature Exploration and Effective Utilization of Online Resources in Research,” encapsulated the institution’s commitment to simplifying the research journey while harnessing the power of technology.











A pivotal element of this event was the acknowledgment of exceptional achievements in research by faculty and staff members. Distinctive awards were conferred, underpinned by four key criteria: citations, publications in ISI and non-ISI journals, research collaborations, and recognition from external entities. The following distinguished individuals from JBLCF-Bacolod were bestowed with honors for their outstanding research contributions:
