T.I.P. shifts to flexible learning, holds first-ever online summer classes

In an effort to encourage its students to keep safe by staying home and learning online, the Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) is now conducting its Summer Classes 2020 digitally via the Canvas learning management system. This is part of the institution’s flexible learning efforts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

T.I.P. commits to helping its students adjust to flexible learning by thoroughly developing effective and enjoyable courses properly modified to fit this new learning environment.

In a written address, T.I.P. President Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz explained to the T.I.P. community the importance of the institution’s move, saying, “Learning cannot stop, and we need to use whatever tools are communally available to ensure continuity of education.”

With abrupt changes in the education system, T.I.P. understands that not all students have the means to enroll in online classes this summer. Dr. Quirino-Lahoz also addressed this, explaining, “This (offering of online classes) does not aim to discriminate against those who cannot avail themselves of such a modality. Rather, the goal here is to at least be able to serve a segment of students who are able and willing to do so.”

Flexible learning shall be part of the new normal in education. T.I.P. sees offering online summer classes as early as now as an opportunity to gather feedback from the online experience, that will be vital to crafting its future flexible learning initiatives and policies, especially leading up to the 1st semester of SY 2020-2021.

To further ensure education continuity for incoming senior high school students and college freshmen, T.I.P.’s Admissions Office has also transitioned to fully online applicant registration. Interested enrollees can now register via https://tip.edu.ph/admissions, as well as email their inquiries through [email protected] and [email protected].
