UTech graduate helping students to study in Europe

For those who graduated from university last month, the ideology of the world being one’s oyster is still tenable. But with a challenging economy and a limited job pool (BPO included), the next move warrants heavy contemplation.

University of Technology, Jamaica graduate Sadé Campbell is offering students the chance to advance in academia while engaging new cultures, via her company, Your Way to Europe Consultation Services.

“We seek to assist students in finding a possible bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral or job training (apprenticeship) in Europe,” the 25-year-old told BUZZ.

“MANY CARIBBEAN PEOPLE OPT TO STUDY IN CANADA OR THE US, BUT THE FEE TO STUDY HERE (EUROPE) IS CHEAPER.”

Dear UTech, Jamaica Community,

As you are aware, Professor Stephen Vasciannie joined our University community as President in January 2017 on a three-year contract. I write to advise that for personal and professional reasons Professor Vasciannie has opted not to renew his contract when it expires on December 31, 2019. I am happy to note however that Professor Vasciannie has offered to extend his tenure to support the transitional arrangements for his succession. 

 

UTechJa_Broadcaster_Banner

The Council is grateful that Professor Vasciannie had accepted the invitation to take on the mantle of leadership at UTech, Jamaica during this season of its evolution as the GOJ-owned national University.

The Council records our thanks for the significant contributions of Professor Vasciannie to UTech, Jamaica during his tenure.  Among other things, we note with appreciation the following:

  • His strong personal leadership of UTech, Jamaica  towards achievement of Institutional Accreditation;
  • The launch of the University of Technology, Jamaica Press;
  • His strong interest in improving the UTech, Jamaica employee value proposition;
  • His strong student-centred approach (inclusive of the 60th Anniversary Scholarship Programme);
  • His overall thrust at modelling personable leadership;
  • His efforts to engender improved employee relations;
  •  His leadership in strengthening teaching, service and research.

These and other important initiatives have served to strengthen the University’s institutional capacity and brand, as well as enhanced the value of the University’s offerings. The institution moves forward with an even stronger platform for fulfilling its mandate as the national University.

The Council thanks Professor Vasciannie for his service and expresses its best wishes to him for the future.

The University Council in accordance with the Ordinance has established a committee chaired by the Pro- Chancellor with responsibility for the search, selection and appointment of the President.

Young Pushes For Papine As University Town

Dean of the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of Technology (UTech), Dr Garfield Young, is calling for a greater buy-in from all stakeholders, towards the establishment of Papine as a university town.

garfield_young-e1573586472177.jpg

Garfield Young, PhD, Alumnus
Dean, Faculty of the Built Environment, UTech, Jamaica

He made the call at the 2nd International Built Environment Conference, held at the institution’s campus in Papine on November 7.

Dr Young noted that the university has had the plans for some time and is hoping that it will move from being just a plan on paper.

“We have done a 3-D model of what Papine should look like; we have redesigned the traffic and we think that this particular part of Papine should be pedestrianised, and it looks good on paper. Papine is the intellectual heart of the Caribbean, not just Jamaica,” Dr Young said.

Dr. Eraldine Williams-Shakespeare, Lecturer, Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies (FELS), who recently defended her doctoral dissertation for the Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, with emphasis in Instructional Technology at the University of South Florida, USA, presented a synopsis of her research titled “Talk Matters: Graduate Students Perceptions of Online Learner-Learner Interaction Design and Experiences” at a FELS Research Dialogue Series session on Thursday, October 3, 2019.  Her dissertation examined graduate students’ perceptions of social interaction, cognitive learning, and over-all satisfaction in online courses with a focus on learner-learner activities.

A selection of participants listening as Dr Eraldine Williams-Shakespeare delivers her presentation at the Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies Research Dialogue Series on Thursday, October 3, 2019.

 

Using a mixed-methods design, Dr. Williams-Shakespeare explained that data were collected via a modified community of inquiry survey, content analysis of online course design and student interviews. Her research sought to determine the types of pedagogy and media used for learner-learner interactions in online courses, graduate students’ perceptions of learner-learner interactions in terms of social, cognitive and teaching presences in online courses and the relationship, if any, between course design elements, learner perceptions of learner-learner interaction and satisfaction.
