OVCAA Road to Wellness

OVCAA with the participation of ILC Diliman had a successful opening of their health and wellness program last October 2017.

The OVCAA Healthy Living and Wellness Program was conducted for the OVCAA employees. The program aims to teach the employees the benefits and/or advantages of having a good and healthy lifestyle, as well as for the employees to be aware of their current body weight and fat status.  The OVCAA wellness program was spearheaded by Prof. Gilda Uy and the members of the OVCAA Academic Personnel Committee.

Ms. Wennie Moralejo, the Administrative Officer of ILC Diliman, lead a talk on the evaluation of body weight and fat. She discussed the ideal diet to maintain weight and how to monitor the weight gain and calories intake.  It was emphasized that awareness of healthy lifestyle is the key to a healthy individual, and that every healthy individual contributes to the efficiency and growth of an office.  Prior to the talk, employees were scanned using the Tanita digital scale for body weight and fat indices.  

The College of Human Kinetics of UP Diliman also organized a seminar wherein they invited participants from other colleges/units to attend.  Tristan Jake Alcantara represented ILC Diliman in the “Gymnastics For All” which was held last October 16 at the CHK Gym Basketball Court.

CSC Exam Review

The UP DIliman Human Resource Development Office (HRDO) held a Civil Service Commission (CSC) Career Service Exam (CSE) Review from June 28 to July 31, 2017. The review was intended for UP Diliman employees and contractuals who have not yet acquired their civil service eligibility.

A total of 89 employees/contractuals participated in the CSE Review.  To accommodate as many participants as possible, the conduct of the review was organized into two batches, with each batch attending separate sessions on a weekly basis.  The review run for a total of five weeks.  

The review was conducted with the participation of and/or in coordination with the Interactive Learning Center (ILC) Diliman.  ILC Diliman initiated an online component for the review sessions, and provided the participants access to UVLê, the university’s learning management system.  Speakers/facilitators for the CSE review uploaded different resources and/or learning materials in UVLê.  Online assessment activities (e.g. exercise exams or short quizzes to simulate answering questions from specific categories) were also provided.  Using UVLê, participants were able to get more engaged and/or continue with the review at their own pace (by accessing the online materials and/or answering the online exercises at their chosen time and/or mode).
