The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a massive shift in how we work, learn and connect with others. Effects rippling from the Covid 19 emergency include changes in the personal, social, and economic spheres. 

The Business Studies department and the ELC jointly hosted a webinar titled Learning the New Normal Way on March 3, 2022 at UTAS, Ibri. Dr. Fitzgerald Kintana took the audience through an informative presentation that focussed on challenges faced by teachers while embracing and adapting the new normal way. The gaps he stated were: limited experience in synchronous online teaching, lack of training needs, time constraints and naïve logistics and instructional strategies. He introduced the audience to Tech-Champs, who led the way to implement a technology-based curriculum and further added that they are indigenizing the curriculum and the hybridization of technology in the new normal. The presentation had plethora of information on asynchronous learning activities. The audience was exposed to the truth of e-learning and shared challenges students face while going digital and strategies to keep them engaged in digital classrooms. 

Dr Fitzgerald, the presentation with a thought-provoking quote “Technology, will not replace great teachers, but technology in the hands of great teachers can be transformational    -George Couros.”


Dr Fitzgerald Kintanar is the Dean, College of Education CTU – Argao Cebu, Philippines. He is a classroom teacher, community teacher and researcher.
