June 1, 2020 – PMDP’s first class to undergo flexible learning officially started today, marking another milestone for the Program in the year 2020. The Opening Ceremony, though conducted virtually, maximized alternatives to the traditions observed in the past via Google Meet.
Although most universities and learning institutions still view education as an activity that is most efficiently delivered face-to-face, mass gatherings at this time continue to be prohibited. In fact, PMDP’s Sensing Journey and Foreign Study Mission that previously required physically immersing in local and international communities, respectively, have to be re-imagined in a way that caters to the current situation without compromising the learning objectives. Using available digital collaborative platforms, the PMDP community laboriously re-worked the Program to be able to conduct classes for its scholars from various agencies across the country. Though discussions on adopting virtual learning have circulated in the past with much reservation especially among the higher management, the current public health situation has inadvertently provided the impetus for this transition. While internet connectivity still remains the biggest challenge, PMDP remains hopeful and ready to troubleshoot as the need arises.
