Mary Jean P Yanger

Abstract


This study was conducted to examine the process of integrating Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED) and Bachelor of Secondary Industrial Education (BSIED) programs in the College of Education of Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU) Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines. The study revealed that 80% of the faculty-implementers endorsed the method of integration and infusion which emphasized faculty capacity and resiliency building, revisiting the Outcomes- Based Education Syllabi, design and preparation of learning resources, and guiding students in hazard mapping and assessing different risks in the schools and community. They recognized that the approach afforded them the opportunity to incorporate DRR key messages that led to the development by the students of DRR comic books. The faculty-implementers believe that the integration is relevant to the individual, family and community understanding of DRR which will result in resiliency in times of disaster.
