EWS

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.

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.

Minister without portfolio
in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation (MEGJC)

 

The Government is considering a further $4-billion contribution to the University of the West Indies (UWI), to assist the leading regional tertiary institution meet its expenses.

Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation (MEGJC) Pearnel Charles Jr informed the Senate on Friday of the development, as he responded to questions from Opposition senators accusing the Government of reducing financial support for the institution.

In response to a number of questions which had been tabled by Opposition member, Senator Floyd Morris, Charles admitted that, while in the 1990s a system had been in effect requiring regional governments to meet 80 per cent of the cost of operating the university and students the other 20 per cent; Jamaica made a change from that model in 2009/10.

He noted that the changed system reflected the reorganisation of financing higher education in Jamaica, and the new model was developed through which a block grant was introduced with an initial contribution of $6.9 billion in 2009/10, which rose to $8.7 billion in 2019/20.

CELEBRATING UTech Jamaica Alumni – Richard Nattoo, Contemporary Visual Artist & Musician September 19, 2019

Fragility Part 2, an exhibition of new works by contemporary visual artist and musician, Richard Nattoo, was held July 27-August 24, 2019 at Gene Pearson Gallery.

 

Richard Nattoo Creates Unique Styles – Showcases At Kingston’s Newest Art Space – R Hotel’s Gene Pearson Gallery

Nattoo, a recent graduate of the School of Architecture at the University of Technology, Jamaica, uses his skills and competencies gained through his education to bolster his own work, giving them a precision and direction little seen in the local art landscape.

The exhibition comprised 13 etchings on glass prisms. Nattoo first introduced his etchings on glass at the 2014 Jamaica Biennial. It was an innovative and inspiring initiative by the newcomer, receiving positive attention and feedback from art lovers.

Capitalising on his pen, ink and watercolour aquatic surreal scapes, Nattoo sliced his 2D drawings into 3D machinations, etching each aspect on to individual panes of glass, creating a full 360-degree piece of work. Finally, by adding a light source the installed work seemed to be etched in light.

“The success of this and future exhibitions would prompt Nattoo to develop on this unique art style,” said Abigail Smith, curator at Gene Pearson Gallery.

A tale of two passions

Roshedo Williams pairs law with agriculture

 

WHEN Roshedo Williams isn’t in class at the University of Technology, Jamaica, where she is pursuing a law degree, she’s running a farm in Hartland District, St Catherine.

The 25-year-old is the operations manager at Tropical Ornamental Fish Farm, one of Jamaica’s largest. The role has her overseeing operational maintenance, purchase and delivery, and overall efficiency of the facility.

She isn’t clear yet about which direction the study of law will take her, but she is dead set on ensuring that it reflect a marriage with farming, especially since she has already reaped some benefits of the symbiosis.
