CE-Logic Inc.’s 2021 National Conference tackles the current situation and technology reshaping today’s library systems and practices

For more than a decade, CE-Logic, Inc. has been persistent in providing librarians and educators timely and relatable discussions by conducting the annual CE-Logic National Conference. With the outbreak of COVID-19 last year, the conference has adapted and transformed into a virtual event. Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, the recently-concluded activity has been successful with the help of CE-Logic’s event partners, speakers, and more than a thousand participants.

 

With this year’s theme, “Envision Education Beyond the New Normal: Reinventing and Reengineering Research, Instruction, Education, and Librarianship,” experts on education and information science tackled the current situation and technology reshaping today’s library systems and practices.

 

On the first day of the conference, Dr. Edizon Fermin, VP for Academic Affairs of the National Teachers College, discussed “Free and Freed: Libraries as Flexible Learning Hubs.” The discussion was followed by Dr. Jonathan Macayan, Dean of the School of Languages of Mapua Institute of Technology, who addressed the “Implementation of Outcomes-Based Education in Distance Learning.” Lastly, Dr. Tirso Ronquillo, President of Batangas State University, shared his insights in “Building an Academic Continuity Plan,” topics highly relevant given the current disruptions experienced by the education sector.
