Some of the topics discussed in the webinar were biblical and theological understanding as well as the psychological and emotional challenges of women in times of crisis.
The conference was attended by more than 70 participants from Southeast Asia.
Prof. Villeza moderated during the 1st day of the conference.
Prof. Villeza served as moderator during the first day of the webinar. She was also a moderator for the ATESEA-sponsored webinar on Distance Education and Flexible Learning held last August 2020.
