In “Teaching Rizal’s ‘ Noli Me Tangere’ and ‘El Filibuster­ismo’ for Wisdom and Citizenshi­p,” the focus of this year’s conference will be on Rizal’s life during the writing of his novels.

The speakers seek to enhance high school teachers’ knowledge and competence as well as Rizal college professors on updated research on the Spanish colonial period.
