The third day of the activity featured insightful talks of speakers from different countries: Dr. Jocelyn P. Carag of CHED Region 02 (Philippines), Dr. Peter Ndiang’ui  of  Florida Gulf Coast (USA), Dr. Rania Lampou of Ministry of Education (Greece), and Dr. Pranay Pandey of Department of Education Bhatter College (India).
