Instructional Delivery Performance and Educational Philosophy: Basis for Recruitment and Hiring

  • Rogelio A. Murro


This study determined the Faculty Members` Instructional Delivery Performance and Educational Philosophy of some selected Higher Education Institutions specifically in the Teacher Education Institutions Faculty Members. It employed a descriptive design in the analysis of data using the Educational Philosophy Self-Assessment Questionnaire- Checklist in identifying the respondents` educational philosophy and the Instructional Delivery Performance Evaluation Instrument (National Budget Circular 461) for their instructional delivery performance as evaluated by their immediate supervisors, peers, and students. A total enumeration method was used in determining the respondents and a total of sixty-two (62) science and language teachers as respondents. The statistical tools used to answer the research problems and to test the hypotheses were simple Percentage, Chi-Square, and Pearson’s Product-Moment Correlation. Findings revealed that there is a variation of educational philosophies among faculty members but they are not aware of their educational philosophy. There is a significant relationship between the field of specialization and educational philosophy. There is also a significant relationship between the educational philosophy and their instructional delivery performance. The instructional delivery performance is Very Satisfactory. Faculty members who adhered to progressivism performed Very Satisfactory in their instructional delivery. Faculty members adhered to a variety of educational philosophies without knowing them. Educational philosophies are related to fields of expertise and the effectiveness of instructional delivery. In terms of educational delivery, progressivist faculty members were a major hit. It is concluded that higher education institutions should hire progressivist applicants to teach language subjects. It is further recommended that when recruiting language and science faculty, the hiring committee should conduct an Educational Philosophy Inventory to determine the educational philosophy of the faculty applicants in order to recognize those who are progressivists for language and information processing for science subjects.
