CVSC HOSTS WEBINAR FOR PROMOTING ONLINE SUPPORT IN INSTRUCTION AMID PANDEMIC
Posted by Given Mark Inansugan on May 29, 2020 6:13 pm
Compostela Valley State College (CVSC) organized a webinar (web seminar) entitled “Webinar on Designing Learning Modules for Online Instruction” via Zoom Teleconference last May 28, 2020 to discuss remote learning tools and other possible strategies to help students and educators promote flex model of learning during the pandemic.
The webinar started a session with the speaker Dr. Monalisa T. Sasing, from the University of the Philippines (UP) Open University, the Deputy Director for Administration of UP National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (NISMED). As educators nowadays are concerned about how they would keep students engaged outside a classroom setting, it was discussed how ‘online’ teachers need to combine multiple strategies to reach learners, such as strengthening relationships with learners, engaging families and helping learners connect with their peers.
For the possible “no face-to-face” class next semester, CVSC commits to think differently about how the institution will serve students, especially those who are in need. This includes how CVSC teachers will be equipped with the knowledge needed in creating learning modules for online instruction.
Furthermore, Dr. Christie Jean V. Ganiera, College President, agreed to this perspective in the new teaching journey towards adopting the so called “new normal” setting. With this goal in designing learning modules for the CVSC students, Dr. Ganiera also emphasized teachers as “frontliners of education”.
“My personal purpose for allowing this webinar is to give you a hand, lightening your burden amidst the fear, the worries, the confusions you feel because you can no longer monitor in actuality the learning process of your beloved students. I know some of you think that these online and offline classes we are adopting cannot equate the face-to-face classes but we are left with no choice, that is why, my goal is to equip you in extending teaching-learning process through flexible learning innovations in the best possible way and I believe that this Webinar on Designing Learning Modules for Online Instruction is one of those supreme ways of coping,” said Dr. Ganiera.
These days, the typical classroom looks different than usual. With closure caused by COVID-19, schools have pivoted their operations to the online world, and many institutions are adjusting to virtual learning for perhaps the first time.
