OUR LADY OF FATIMA U EYES F2F CLASSES NEXT YEAR AS IATF, CHED VISIT ITS VALENZUELA CAMPUS
THE COMMISSION on Higher Education on Tuesday inspected retrofitted classrooms at the Our Lady of Fatima University in Valenzuela City to determine its readiness for face-to-face classes next year.
National Task Force Against Covid19 chief implementer Carlito Galvez accompanied CHED officials who inspected the facilities of OLFU, which plans to hold face-to-face classes in January.
CHED Chairman Prospero De Vera III said this was in consideration of certain degree programs and class activities that cannot be done virtually such as nursing and medicine.
Galvez said the health protocols set by OLFU could be a template for other schools to emulate.
OLFU said that if face-to-face classes would resume, only one student will be allowed per bed in its Clinical Simulation Center while a teacher will give instructions remotely through a monitor.
Limited face-to-face classes can be conducted as long as it will be inspected and approved by the CHED and the IATF.
