De La Salle Lipa (DLSL), De La Salle University (DLSU), and De La Salle Santiago Zobel (DLSZ) launched the Philippine Journal “Sinaya” on April 29, 2021 during the virtual De La Salle University SHS Research Congress from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. via Zoom.
Proponents of this project aim to introduce a new form of academic activity in relation to collaborative research work of senior high school mentors and learners in the country.
The advocates acknowledged that the academic journal is the most essential method of sharing the results of research activities. Essentially, learning encompasses the creation as well as sharing of knowledge among stakeholders.
The project ensures that research teachers from the De La Salle schools as well as other participating educational institutions are the ones doing the actual research. At the same time, the community, the church and the nation can benefit from the knowledge generated and shared by students and teachers. This endeavor also helps train future Filipino researchers while fostering collaboration among the De La Salle schools.
Promote Lasallian Education
By and large, the said initiative advocates the Lasallian brand of education specifically through the journal with three annual issues. Sinaya published nationwide will certainly be an impressive addition to the accreditation exhibits of the three schools.
The pioneer and flagship journal for the senior high school teachers and students of the country is bilingual (English and Filipino). It shall be triannual with the following themes: Category A – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; Category B – Accountancy, Business, and Management; and Category C – Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts.
The vision is envisaged by the commitment of De La Salle University, De La Salle Santiago Zobel, and De La Salle Lipa to create an impact in society by involving senior high school mentors and researchers in knowledge creation.
