Primer on Perpetual Flexible Learning Options (College)

  1. 1. Primer on the UPHSD Flexible Learning Options (FLOs) for Students and Parents in the Tertiary Level SY 2020-2021
  2. 2. FOREWORD The University of Perpetual Help System DALTA acknowledges the difficulties posed by the continuing spread of Covid 19 to the delivery of instruction in all levels. True to its commitment to provide quality education to the learners in this critical time, UPHSD is embarking on its Flexible Learning Options (FLO) and implementing an online distance learning (ODL) plan for the first semester, School Year 2020-2021. Mindful of its mission to produce Perpetualites who are “Helpers of God” and who contribute to nation building, the University strives to continue to provide quality instruction through various forms and formats so students can develop essential competencies in the safety of their homes. The guidelines contained in this Primer provide guidance to students and their parents on the implementation of the online distance education of the University through flexible learning options and modalities. However, details and announcements are communicated to the students and their parents by their respective departments. Challenges are expected to emerge at the onset of its implementation, but we hope that these will encourage students to become more responsible, responsive and self-directed. We further hope to inspire the faculty to explore engaging and innovative ways to deliver the curriculum through more authentic learning tasks and experiences. It is our fondest prayer that students continue to value their education and learn as best as they could, despite the constraints of the current learning modalities and their personal circumstances.
  3. 3. GENERAL POLICIES AND GUIDELINES • The University utilizes a Learning Management System (LMS) for remote learning. It shall serve as the official UPHSD digital library. Students can access courses, lessons, resources, materials, links and other online tools and communicate with the faculty through the LMS. Students shall remotely log in using the Username and Password provided by the University. • The virtual classrooms will use both face-to-face (F2F) online classes and self-paced instructional modules. • Class schedules shall provide for both synchronous and asynchronous engagements of students. • Synchronous or online meetings can be done through videoconferencing using Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Zoom or other accessible media.
  4. 4. GENERAL POLICIES AND GUIDELINES • Asynchronous learning engagement is encouraged when there is no real-time interaction between students and faculty and simultaneous conduct of virtual classes or assessment. • Asynchronous learning can also be facilitated by providing students with self-paced learning modules containing learning tasks and experiential engagements which are presented in portable learning packets for those who have limited or no internet connectivity. • Once the situation improves and the community quarantine measures are lifted, blended learning will be implemented.
