Systems thinking plays a key role in producing the understanding of a big picture — a broader view of looking at the overall system needed to develop a learning community more effectively. Practical expectations to improve the functioning of Human systems, here teacher preparedness, on identifying possible interventions, relate at description and partial evaluation of how the systems work. This paper circumscribes linguistic situations and considers individual differences, reluctance for a pedagogical change and administration as interventions in a specific human learning system of importance in education during teacher training. Thereby, an Intervention Solving Protocol [ISP] was addressed to the following problem: How can we improve a learning community of students enrolled in teacher training? In what follows, intervention-solving protocol called ISP explicates the interventions to bring about a transformation to attain the desired state of linguistic education, improved communication and enhanced thinking.
Problem-based learning (PBL) is a pedagogical method that challenges students to think intuitively, learn co-operatively in groups to seek solutions to real world problems. These problems are used as the building blocks to engage students' curiosity and initiate independent learning of subject matter. Authentic, alternative assessment plays a key role in the effective implementation of a PBL unit. The discussions in this paper are drawn upon the learning experiences of students enrolled in a tertiary institution that has developed its curricular design based upon a rigorous PBL model. Based upon student feedback, some crucial issues focusing on the inherent strengths and pitfalls of authentic assessment techniques in the context of a PBL environment are explored. Students’ comments on possible improvements to the assessment system are also analysed in this paper.
This is a study on the “Personality Characteristics of Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) Sta.

The present study was aimed to assess the teachers’ encouragement in the classroom for the promotion of students’ creativity. A survey method was used for the present research with a sample of 373 subjects from ninth class. For collection of data four instruments were used, namely Student Information Sheet (SIS), two tests of ‘Creative Thinking’ (Verbal and non-verbal) and Teacher Encouragement Scale (TES). The TES was developed specially for this research project. It was designed for the students to rate the extent to which their teachers encouraged creativity in the classroom. The analysis of Teacher Encouragement Scale (TES) showed no significant difference was found for sex and medium of instruction. Students from boys’ schools were more favourable towards the teacher encouragement than girls and coeducation school students. The highly creative students had more favourable attitudes towards teacher encouragement as perceived by students than their counterparts of average and low creative groups. It indicates that level of students’ creativity proportionate to the teacher encouragement.
