Camp General Mariano N Castañeda, Silang, Cavite – The Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) has moved to the flexible blended type learning modality in adherence to the guidelines set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). According to PNPA Director PMGEN GILBERTO DC CRUZ, head-on classes with the cadets are prohibited until a vaccine for Corona Virus Disease 2019 (CoViD-19) becomes available.
In addition, wide screen LED TVs and sound reinforcement system were purchased and will be installed shortly in different learning areas along with the newly established internet connectivity inside the camp.
Despite the restrictions brought about by CoViD-19, PMGEN CRUZ does not prefer offline learning scheme and still wants to ensure interactive education for the cadets through online platforms. “I made it clear with the Dean of Academics to secure all professors’ alignment on this matter. Every lecturer must be virtually present during classes and all lessons shall be embedded in online modalities to make sure that interactions are achieved” the Director said.
PNPA cadets will show their abilities in adopting the new normal situation despite the massive changes and adjustments in the educational system caused by the present pandemic, added PMGEN CRUZ.
