SPECIAL ONLINE SUMMER TERM
Learning modalities for SOST will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning which may happen online or offline.
Centerpiece to this would be OLFU’s Learning Management System (LMS) known as Canvas. Course modules will be housed here, as well as quizzes, exams and other assessment tasks.
“Synchronous” means when learning is done together as a class within an appointed duration of time. This can mean online live lectures by teachers; watching video lectures together; holding class discussions; taking quizzes/exams, and more.
“Asynchronous” is mainly about self-directed learning where studies are carried out at one’s own pace, but still with the goal of completing the work within a deadline set by the teacher. This could mean doing research, readings, writings, group project meetings, accessing course modules on Canvas, completing specified assessment taks, and more.
Whether synchronous or asynchronous, all SOST learning will play out while students stay within the safety of their homes. Its mix will vary from course-to-course, teacher-to-teacher. To sum it up, the learning modalities of SOST will be convenient, accessible and self paced.
FIRST SEMESTER (SY 2020-2021)
The teaching modalities will be a mix of online class lectures & discussions, on-campus interface, and/or self-directed learning through research & writings, readings, and performance tasks. Online learning will initially be implemented which will slowly transition to flexible learning (combined online and face-to-face) once the COVID crisis improves.
The modalities to be used will depend on the call of the times. But whatever that may be, OLFU will strictly follow the DOH/ WHO health parameters, and will navigate its learners through the waters— fluidly and safely.
