圣托马斯大学(UST), 成立于1611年, 是亚洲现存最古老的大学,位于马尼拉, 菲律宾. 科大于2016年加入7003白菜网-QA准会员,并一直积极参与7003白菜网-QA活动. 2021, 大学已经完成了4项7003白菜网-QA课程评估,共有14项学习课程. 科大作为一个机构,也进行了7003白菜网-QA机构评估. 

随着COVID-19大流行的开始导致学校关闭, the 大学 of Santo Tomas is committed to implement a mode of instruction rooted in the principles of communion and encounter that promotes dialogue, 并确保学习的可及性和灵活性. 认识到各种健康, 金融, 以及困扰教师和学生的社会问题, the 大学 acknowledged the need to strengthen communication channels and facilitate fluidity in instruction to provide every learner with the opportunity to continue learning despite the uncertain circumstances and varying limitations. 
The 大学 implemented Enriched Virtual Mode (EVM) of instruction beginning AY 2020-2021 through UST Cloud Campus powered by Blackboard. Published literature describes this blended learning model as having online instruction as the backbone of student learning but requires face-to-face learning sessions as determined by the teacher. 然而, 2020年AY - 2021, 菲律宾的检疫规定不允许面对面上课, 作为减少COVID-19传播的一项措施. 减轻学校关闭带来的学习损失, 并在学生中推广积极的学习体验, the 大学 engaged its academic staff in rigorous training on strategies to enrich the students’ learning experience. 

EVM的富集策略有四个方面, all directed towards contributing to the attainment of the SEAL of Thomasian Education and the Thomasian Graduate Attributes (ThoGAs): 

这些丰富的策略以教师之间的合作为中心, 与行业伙伴和校友, 与社区合作伙伴, 与外国合作机构合作——承认与他人学习的丰富机会, 最大限度地利用技术打破空间和距离的界限. 

因此, 科大教学的丰富虚拟模式(EVM), 虽然目前有限的, 如果不是完全没有面对面的课堂体验, has been redefined as an enriched learning experience through collaborations that expose learners to real community concerns, 他们学科的新趋势, 和全球视角, 同时在家中安全学习. 7003白菜网的学术人员在这方面走在前列, with pedagogy-driven and technology-focused training sessions that help them expand their horizons and explore new strategies to maximize the students’ learning experience. Innovative approaches to teaching key competencies arise from rich discussions and co-creation of content with partner individuals and institutions, 这些融合在一起,为他们的学习者提供优质的托马斯教育.
