T.I.P. launches student-friendly semester for undergraduate and graduate programs!

Going Modular: T.I.P.'s new approach to delivering online and flexible learning courses

The Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) is making major changes to its education system as it opens its virtual doors on August 24, 2020 for its undergraduate and graduate program students for the School Year 2020-2021.

T.I.P. shall be adopting online and flexible learning approaches for the coming first semester due to the continued threat of COVID-19. This is true for T.I.P.’s engineering, architecture, computing, business education, ARTS, teacher education, and graduate programs.

Alongside these changes in educational modality is T.I.P.’s shift to modular delivery of its courses. T.I.P. designed the modular format with students in mind to provide them with a study-life balance. As well as keeping in mind the challenges they may be facing that are brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. The modular approach shall be very manageable for the students because they shall only deal with 3 or less courses every 6 weeks. This pace is much friendlier and is very much in contrast to a regular semester where they shall take 9 courses simultaneously in one semester. Students shall not experience any online course burn out because they only need to focus on 2 or 3 courses at a time. They can pursue their hobbies and interests while enrolled in T.I.P.

“T.I.P. has always valued the health and safety of its community, which is one of its primary reasons for providing online/flexible learning classes,” explained T.I.P. President Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz. “This drastic change may sound intimidating at first for our students. But once they understand the logical design of the modular delivery of courses, they shall soon know that they can still achieve the expected course outcomes, and at the same time balance their academic load with their other responsibilities,” Dr. Quirino-Lahoz continued.

The school has heavily invested in its IT systems to anchor its online/flexible learning efforts. It has recently revamped its EmpowerED ARIS student management portal to facilitate enrollment in the new normal, as well as adopted the Canvas learning management system (LMS) for the conduct of classes and online student life. All other student services such as its Career Center, Student Group Tutorial, Student Affairs, Guidance Office, and even its Dental and Medical services are now all accessible in just a few clicks through Canvas.

T.I.P.’s efforts in shifting its education modality and student services online is part of its newest thrust towards reengineering its education ecosystem.
