Following the CAFSama Nyo Kami activities, the IWEP Health and Wellness Team recently organized a webinar titled, “Making the Most Out of Remote Learning.” The activity aimed to present ways and tips on coping during this remote set-up, to reinforce positive aspects of remote learning, and to encourage students, faculty, and staff to carry on during these challenging times. This was held last May 17 via Zoom and Facebook live.

Prof. Dan Paolo R. Yema, director of Office of Counseling and Guidance and assistant professor from Department of Social Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, UPLB, served as the resource speaker in the webinar. Prof. Yema emphazised the importance of self-regulated learning and presented ways on how to develop this, such as planning, setting goals, self-monitoring, and reflecting performance, among others. He also gave tips on how to manage time properly and how to overcome procrastination.

The value of communication was also highlighted as Prof. Dan mentioned that the academic and counseling offices are always open for students’ queries and concerns. He ended his talk by reminding the students to value their role as encouragers of their fellow students. For the students, faculty, and staff, Prof. Yema reminded them that they are allowed to take breaks and that compassion should foremost be extended to themselves as well.
