More than 150 schools and universities participated in the first part of “EDTALK 2021: Achieving Learning Continuity through Innovative Teaching Strategies” webinar series organized by the PUP College of Education on May 8, 2021 via Zoom Meeting and Facebook live.
In her welcome remarks, College of Education (CoEd) Dean Dr. Minna Comuyog said that amidst the transformation of the education system due to the pandemic, the University hopes that the series will make way to interventions in making adjustments to achieve learning continuity.
Meanwhile, PUP President Dr. Manuel M. Muhi in his speech emphasized the role of educators in students’ awareness and reminded them to also empower themselves through the webinar. “Students will not be enlightened if not because of your efforts and service [teachers]. Maximize all these learning opportunities and use them to arm yourselves with knowledge,” said Muhi.
The six-part webinar series kicked off with the topic “Inspire and Transpire: Perks of Being a Motivation-Driven Teacher Amidst the Challenges in Education” which focused on how to keep being motivated amidst the challenges in the new educational setting.
Mr. Jerome Hilario and Ms. Genie Rose Ann Marie Oliman served as resource speakers on the topic. Mr. Hilario talked about turning challenges into opportunities to learn and develop. “We have to focus on the good in bad situations as the quotation goes ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonades,” he said.
On the other hand, Ms. Oliman discussed the importance of motivation to continue the profession. “If we are motivation-driven teachers, these setbacks won’t hinder us from delivering an effective lesson,” Ms. Oliman exclaimed.
A question and answer portion took place after the discussion. The webinar ended with key takeaways from Ms. Alyza Caddauan, the master of the ceremonies. “Teachers’ efforts and sacrifices, on some circumstances, are underrated. And sometimes, if others can't see it, we need to tap our shoulders and give ourselves praises and validation for the efforts that we have done,” Ms. Caddauan shared.
There are remaining five more topics about different issues in education which will be discussed in the succeeding webinars.
