Over 1,000 beginning and master teachers attended the hybrid conference held in Plaridel, Bulacan, which carried the theme “Fostering a Supportive Learning Environment.” DepEd Bulacan is one of the 10 extension program partners of UA&P - IST.

Ms. Lentija discussed the key characteristics of a supportive learning environment, which include positive and respectful relationships, a sense of belonging for all students, a safe space for learning and taking risks, high expectations for student success, and clear routines and procedures.

Mr. Buenafe, on the other hand, elaborated on the management theory of psychological safety and growth mindset, and showcased examples of positive and inclusive classroom practices, such as the classroom constitution and icebreakers.

The last two lectures of the series were given by Xepto Education, an industry partner of UA&P through IST.
