The CTU is globally-recognized research and innovation, smart, community-responsive, and sustainable technological University, thus holding the 1st National Sustainability Summit 2022, on June 23-24, 2022, in its extension campus – Argao.
With its theme: “Transforming Education through Research and Innovation for Sustainable Development”, the faculty across the campus has the opportunity to present their research papers for Education, Arts and Sciences.
At the commencement of the summit, Dr. Rosein A. Ancheta Jr., University President, gave his welcome message to the presenter and the academe individuals from various State Universities across the country who participated virtually.
Furthermore, prior to the advent of the paper presentation, different keynote speakers shared their messages and presented their research that will also serve as a stimulant for the infant and aspiring researchers.
In addition, despite our ongoing fight against the invisible foe (covid-19), it was not a limitation for the presenter to deliver their papers virtually, for the organizers created a breakout room in a zoom individually for Education, Arts and Sciences where participants could present their papers.
Within the two-day summit, there were 11 presenters in the field of Education, ten papers in Arts, and four in Sciences critiqued by the assigned panellist.
Pursued the mechanics and guidelines imposed for the best paper, the E-Learning Instructional Materials Development: Addressing the Needs for Sustainable Online Education of Dr. Cristie Ann L. Jaca won as the best paper in Education; in Arts, the paper of Dr. Melanie Albaraccin entitled
