The University of Santo Tomas Graduate School Center for Conservation of Cultural Property and the Environment in the Tropics (USTGS CCCPET) conducted the cultural heritage mapping training to the second batch of Department of Education teachers all over the country.
The nationwide cultural mapping program was a collaboration of the UST GS CCCPET, Department of Education – Bureau of Learning Delivery – Teaching and Learning Division (DepEd-BLD-TLD), and the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).
The inaugural cycle was initially undertaken in October 2021. The second cycle of training covered a three week duration online through Zoom from July 18 to August 3, 2022.
With a total of 350 participants, the second batch of teachers came from two (2) Divisions of Region I, Region II, Cordillera Autonomous Region (CAR), Region III, National Capital Region, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Region V, Region VI, Region VII, Region VIII, Region IX, Region X, Region XI, Caraga and Region XII.
Assoc. Prof. Eric Babar Zerrudo Ph.D., Director of UST GS CCCPET lectured throughout the training with a special presentation of Prof. Joan Trocio-Bagaipo, Ph.D. of the UST Institute of Religion.
