Module Development in Home and Family Living for College Students of a State University in the Philippines

Mark Raguindin Limon, John Paul Castillo Vallente


This paper generated a module in Home and Family Living along the six units in Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE): The Filipino Family; The Teenager; Making and Keeping Friends; Looking towards Marriage; Towards Responsible Parenthood; and Home Care Nursing. This instructional material was prepared on the assumption that given adequate and meaningful instruction in the different units, the module can enhance the teaching-learning process, and help students master the content and skills required of a TLE teacher. In the development of the module in HFL, the researchers followed the research and development cycle called research-based development technology, using the ADDIE Model’s stages. The major steps in developing the module included analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation; each stage is composed of different phases. After the construction of the module, it was examined and content-validated with regard to objectives, content, instructional characteristics, and practice test items, using a rating scale by seven experts from the different fields in Home Economics. The module was found highly valid in all its aspects, and revisions were made based on the suggestions given. Subsequently, 25 TLE students and seven teachers assessed the usefulness of the module. The evaluators adjudged the material useful as revealed by their testimonials; therefore, it was concluded that the material was more effective than traditional, lecture-based classroom teaching strategy. It was recommended that this validated module be published, reproduced, and utilized to supplement the existing materials employed by the students and the teachers to help them develop the required competencies, and further master the content and skills required of a TLE teacher.
