Crossing borders brought changes and challenges to higher education and to many aspects of our lives that removed barriers among cities and countries across the world. Research plays a critical role in facing these challenges as it enhances the overall quality of education. It promotes better understanding of the impact of change and cultural exchange and in facing the emerging needs of the country through innovations and technology. In this connection, Cebu Normal university College of Teacher Education would like to invite you and your students to participate in the 3rd International (4th national) Teacher Education Student Conference (TEStCon).

Cebu Normal University’s (CNU) history began with the establishment in 1902 of Cebu Normal School as a provincial branch of Philippine Normal School. With the passage of R.A.

On June 27, 1998, the higher education institution (then called Cebu State College) attained university status and was named Cebu Normal University (CNU) pursuant to R.A. No. 8688. CNU has campuses in Medellin and Balamban.
