“The mission of the FEU CTLCE is to find out about the best ways students learn to think, learn to love learning and learn integrity. Those three things are the core questions every teacher asks: how do we get our students to think? How do we get our students to love learning? How do we get our students to learn integrity?” shared Dr. Ma. Teresa Trinidad P. Tinio, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
