UVLe Workshop

WHAT: UPCD UVLe Workshop
WHEN: 1July 2015
WHERE: UP Manila Library Learning Commons

The UP College of Dentistry held a one-day workshop for faculty members on the use of “UVLe” : the University Virtual Learning Environment last July 1, 2015 at the UP Manila Library Learning Commons.

“The name "UVLe" is a homophonic play of "OblĂȘ" which is a contraction of "Oblation"--a university symbol.  <It is an online virtual classroom system> powered by an open-source application called “Moodle”.  UvLe is currently being maintained and operated by the Diliman Interactive Learning Center (DILC).  It is a platform for students to freely interact or collaborate with their instructors and fellow students and is constructed with a pedagogy that imbibes self-discovery, self-instruction, "learning by doing" and experimentation.

The UPCD introduced this system to faculty members thru a hands-on workshop on its basic functionalities and use.  The workshop aimed to provide the basic training needed for faculty members so that they may be able to employ the system as a support tool for teaching their respective courses.

We have invited the Director of the Medical Informatics Unit, Iris Thiele Isip Tan MD, MSc, as the facilitator for the seminar/workshop.

The Graduate Program in Orthodontics underwent the same UVLe Workshop with Dr. Charlie Atienza as the Facilitator on August 2015.
