UP NISMED introduced Lesson Study in the country in 2003 and officially launched it in 2006. Through the years, the teacher-led and school-based professional development program has involved over 500 teachers from more than 50 schools and universities all over the country. In lesson study, teachers are involved actively in designing instruction and in developing curriculum materials. A key consideration in lesson study is collaboration. Teachers work collaboratively in planning, developing, implementing, and revising a research lesson based on a long-term goal. Dr. Aida I. Yap, Director of

UP NISMED, along with Dr. Soledad A. Ulep, former Director, and Dr. Erlina R. Ronda, Deputy Director for Research and Extension, accepted the award on behalf of UP NISMED.
