For the sixth time, the Mindanao Center for Policy Studies (MCPS) in partnership with the Knowledge for Development Community (KDC), held a series of videoconferencing seminars from June to October 2019.
The recently concluded blended learning course on
Performance Management of the Public Sector was offered by the Korea Development Institute (KDI) School of Public Policy in Seoul, Korea to other Global Development Learning
Network (GDLN) Asia-Pacific Affiliates.
The MCPS served as one of the two Distance Learning Centers (DLCs) for the Philippines.
This was a result of the University’s partnership with SEAMEO – Innotech who invited USeP as partner in the GDLN learning series. Participants in the video conference sessions

Philippines Medical Center (SPMC), the Department of Education (DepEd) and local government personnel from the Island Garden City of Samal. They interacted with
participants from Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Korea, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam.
For the face-to-face sessions in Seoul, Korea, KDI selected four (4) participants from the
