CiTL Official Launching

The sound of the goblets echoed throughout the room as the deans, directors, administrative and academic heads and faculty members congratulated the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CiTL) for what it has accomplished a year after the center was conceived.

Although CiTL has been serving the faculty-clients of the USTP community since 2020, the center has not yet been officially launched due to the sudden onset of the pandemic brought by Covid 19. However, last February 26, 2021 at 3:00 o’ clock in the afternoon, CiTL was officially launched and congratulatory messages flooded in affirmation of their support to the center.

Dr. Amparo Vedua-Dinagsao shared her message on how the center began and its core function as one of the 7-point agenda of the University
Engr. Rojien V. Morcilla gave his speech of the commitments of the center towards the University's vision and mission.

The event was truly a cheer of triumph for everything that the center has been through for the past year: from the birth pains of its creation, the abrupt shift from the normal face to face trainings and teaching to Flexible Learning and webinars, endless meetings for training schedules, sleepless nights whilecreating modules and action plans and more. These were reciprocated with boundless thank you messages, never-ending praises, and heartwarming comments from everyone in the university; add up the numerous faculty members who dared take the challenge of sharing their best practices to the whole teaching community which in turn allowed them to shine and encouraged other colleagues to better their instruction and strategies in engaging students during Flexible Learning.

Dr. Ambrosio B Cultura II, USTP President gave a heartfelt message where he emphasized that CiTL was one of the units who responded for the implementation of Flexible learning, while Atty. Dionel Albina, USTP-CDO Chancellor, praised the center for its accomplishments. Dr. Ma Elena Paulma, VPAA also recalled how CiTL was instrumental in the smooth transition from face-to-face classes to Flexible Learning. Looking back, watching the accomplishment videos, and listening to the speakers, one can truly feel the depth of commitment that CiTL has for the whole USTP community.
