The teacher-participants also learned how to stain bacteria and fungi and how to prepare tissues from mushrooms, lichens, plants and animals for microscopic observations. The workshops were facilitated by several faculty members of the department: Prof. Gina Dedeles, PhD, Asst. Prof. Ma. Sheila de Jesus, Asst. Prof. Ma. Victoria Pangilinan, Asst.
