Her paper was entitled Benchmarking the Practices of Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in Science Education. This was a collaborative research project funded by the DLSU-CHED-ZRC. The co-authors in this project are the following: Dr. Ferdinand C. Lacuata (National Teachers College), Dr. Maricar S. Prudente (De La Salle University), Dr. Rebecca C. Nueva Espana (Philippine National University), Dr. Adora S. Pili (Technological Institute of the Philippines), Prof. S. Bunagan (Arellano University). Prof. Murita S.

Caingcoy ( PMI Colleges), Prof. Herminio P. Ceballos (PMI Colleges ) and Dr. Delia C. Navasa ( St Scholastica's College ).
The paper sought to benchmark practices of TEIs which were successful in the attainment of the planned and implemented curriculum in Science Education. It stimulated much reaction and interest from the other participants because the results established a pattern which is similar in their own countries.
