DLSU holds the 2nd Interactive Discourse for Administrators and Educators Seminar

Manila, Philippines — The De La Salle University hosted the 2nd Interactive Discourse for Administrators and Educators Seminar (IDEAS) last January 22, at the Henry Sy Sr. Hall. Invited speakers were Metrobank Outstanding Teacher Awardee and National Book Award winner Dr. Tereso Tullao Jr. and Bianca Gonzalez, a well-known media personality and youth icon.

Dr. Tereso Tullao Jr. is a former dean of DLSU’s College of Business and Economics. He also holds and an MA in Law and Diplomacy and Ph.D in International Economics from Tufts University and Stanford University respectively. His talk, “Teacher-tested-Ways to Make Class More Fun and Interesting” gives practical and experience-based insights on how educators can draw students’ attention and make them more receptive to learning even the most difficult or technical concepts.

Bianca Gonzalez, a well-respected youth icon, delivered “Trending Topic: Social Media Habits Teens Can’t Break.” Gonzalez explored social media trends in order to make educators understand how new technological innovations in the internet such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram has led to much cultural change among the youth. Discussing these changes will lead to more accessibility and respectful exchanges between educators and students.

Administrators and educators from all over Metro Manila attended IDEAS to learn more tools that will help them be more competitive and competent in their profession. This annual administrations and educators’ seminar aims to encourage those in the field of education to foster a sense of love for learning.
