THE FRANCISCAN ADAPTIVE LEARNING PROGRAM (FALP)
Saint Francis of Assisi College will be fully online for the School Year 2021-2022 through the Franciscan Adaptive Learning Program (FALP). The Franciscan Adaptive Learning Program (FALP) is a learning program that implements the concept of blended or hybrid learning. It is a combination of virtual classroom sessions and independent learning sessions using the Learning Management System (LMS). This mode of learning offers a more flexible approach and requires no physical exposure to crowded classes. With the occurrence of man-made or natural disturbances which may cause disruption of classes, adaptive learning is seen as one of the viable solutions for continuous education.
Under the Franciscan Adaptive Learning Program, SFAC offers two choices: Online Distance Learning Program (ODLP) and Modular Distance Learning Program (MDLP)
The Online Distance Learning Program (ODLP) utilizes synchronous approach in which learners of the same level learn at the same time and pacing, like a regular class. In this program, there will be three modes of delivery.
- The Guided Online Session (GOLS) refers to all live online learning activities with teacher assistance or interaction such as virtual discussion, tutorial, teleconference, or webinar.
- The second mode of delivery is called the Independent Learning Session (ILS) which refers to the time devoted by the learners to accomplish assignments or worksheets, read, research, or watch new or related topics. This allows learners to learn on their own.
- The last mode of delivery is the Consultation – Intervention Session (CIS) which refers to the period dedicated solely for academic consultations between the learners and their teacher.
The Modular Distance Learning Program (MDLP) on the other hand, is an asynchronous or individualized learning method for Junior High School where student-teacher interaction is one-on-one. The Modular Distance Learning Program will be delivered under our Franciscan Home Study Program, a DepEd recognized alternative learning modality, where learners take home and accomplish K-12 aligned self-learning modules.
