CHED wants lab classes, OJT moved to January
By Prince Golez
The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) urged colleges and universities in the country to resume laboratory instruction and internships next year.
In a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte aired over state-run PTV-4 Wednesday, CHED chairman Prospero de Vera proposed that laboratory subjects be taught during second semester.
“In January, i-delay natin hanggang January at uutusan natin ‘yung mga universities na lahat nung subjects na may lab, OJT (on-the-job training), internship et cetera, i-reschedule nila sa second semester,” said de Vera.
“So sa first sem ang ituturo lang lahat nung mga klase na regular na puwedeng lectures. Theoretical doon sa first sem. Imo-move natin sa second semester ‘yung kailangang pupunta.
“So the options will be from the more open limited face-to-face in low-risk MGCQ (modified general community quarantine) areas to the most conservative do it in second semester,” he added.
