Two-Day 4th PACU LAMP Summit was a success!

On March 30, the TOP Philippine University in Cebu wrapped up an insightful two-day 4th PACU LAMP Summit as the satellite venue of the gathering.

Being the satellite venue, Cebu Institute of Technology – University hosted University and College Presidents, Directors, Deans, and Faculty members for this insightful gathering that opened a platform for the exchange of best practices in curriculum and programs aligned with industry practices. The summit focused on the theme “One Size Fits All?? Education Trajectories, Transitions and Transformations”.

The gathering answered the question that when it comes to the students’ learning, one size doesn’t fit all. Learning should be brought to the students and not the other way around.

The LAMP Summit, initiated by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU), was conducted through a hybrid set-up, simultaneously across multiple locations and platforms with the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Philippines as the main venue.

The benchmarking tour afterward was a success, and we look forward to implementing the valuable insights gained from this summit.
