ABSTRACT


The BS Human Ecology students specializing in Human Settlements Planning of the Department of Community and Environmental Resource Planning, College of Human Ecology in the University of the Philippines Los Baños undergo a Supervised Field Experience in their last semester as part of the requirements of the completion of their program.

HUME 198 or the Supervised Field Experience is a culminating integrative course requirement, which aims to teach the students how to apply the knowledge, skills, and attitude that they gained from the basic academic training in the planning and development of ecologically stable and self-reliant communities, through actual experience in the field.

One of the field experiences highlighted the use of participatory mapping and geographic information systems as tools for producing inputs for local development planning in Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines. Five BS Human Ecology students spent eight weeks in the area for their supervised field experience. They conducted participatory resource mapping with the communities in the municipality and used the results together with the secondary data they gathered to formulate an ecological profile of the municipality.

The students’ output is an ecological profile containing maps characterizing the municipality. Maps served as visual tools for this characterization. The students presented their outputs to selected representatives of the municipality and to the faculty members of the department.
