The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) hosted a meeting with stakeholders from the College of Physical Therapy (CPT) to discuss plans and concerns regarding the gradual return to face-to-face learning.
Faculty members, students, as well as parents and guardians joined the online session hosted through Microsoft Teams on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.
CPT Dean Prof. Alan Magpantay led the discussion, while members of the executive committee led by PLM President Emmanuel Leyco were on standby to respond to questions and clarifications.
Among the skill-based courses that will be offered in-campus are human anatomy and introduction to physical therapy (PT) and patient care for freshmen; orthopedic PT, assistive technologies, and integumentary PT for second year students; pediatric PT, geriatric PT, neurologic PT2 for juniors; and internship for fourth year students.
Classes will be on face-to-face mode on select days per week beginning April 4 until June 25, while the rest of the meetings will be offered as synchronous and asynchronous online sessions.
“We are thrilled to take more classes out of the online realm back to in-person learning sessions. Two years of distance education has been too long. We want to enhance our students’ learning by bringing back face-to-face classes,” President Leyco said.
“We will ensure that minimum health protocols will be adhered to as we bring our students back to the campus,” he added.
Campus-wide, senior students with laboratory classes are prioritized for in-person classes. The College of Medicine and College of Nursing are also offering select courses under the face-to-face mode of learning.
