Auxencia A. Limjap

Outstanding Paper Award during EASE Biennial Conference held in Howard International House, Taipe, T (2009)

Expertise: Educational, Government and International Policies, Mathematics and Science Education

Dr. Auxencia A. Limjap, is recognized for her important contributions in the field of Far Eastern University Vice President for Academic Development, has been chosen as one of the recipients of the 2013 National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) Achievement Award. The award will be conferred on Dr. Limjap in recognition for her many achievements in the field of research including teaching innovations in De La Salle University and on-going engagement in research on educational, governmental and international policies. “I am humbled and honored to receive this prestigious award from the NRCP that recognizes my decades of hard work and achievements as an educator and researcher. I am challenged to continue engaging in educational research on learning and teaching. I wish to have a more intensive look at the kind of education our present generation of learners needs, to address the current demands of society. I see this award as God’s way of reminding me that I have a purpose to fulfil and that I should stay focused,” said Dr. Limjap. She was also at the forefront of changes in mathematics education in the country especially during her time as President of the Philippine Council of Mathematics Teacher Educators, MATHTED, Inc., in the early 2000s. She encourages those in research especially her colleagues in FEU, to never tire of looking for solutions to problems they encounter. “You should be discerning and critical. Exposing yourself to literature about your study is necessary so you can ask the right questions and search for what is true, valid and relevant. Be intellectually ethical and honest. Reach out to the larger community that may benefit from your study. After all, the value of a research endeavour still rests on the transformation you and your team has undergone, and its influence on the foundations of knowledge and on society.”Dr. Limjap will formally receive the award on March 26, 2014 during the 81st NRCP Annual General Membership Assembly at the Manila Hotel.
