Last July 10th, a place-based learning experience was conducted by CAS Asst. Dean, Prof. Fernando Alarcon, after he uniquely held his Malabon History class at the Malabon Heritage Library Museum. The CMU students also learned from Prof. Egay of the City Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office, and her assistant Ms. Ma. Louella Francisco, after they facilitated a discussion about Malabon History, Culture, and heritage.
One of the most important academic pursuits of anyone is to learn history. And as CMU students, they are being taught about the history of Malabon so they can appreciate more its beauty, experience the joy of discovery, and to challenge their intellect.
This activity is part of the initiative of the new CMU Administration in creating more experiential education to improve the learning experience of the students.
