Dr. Eraldine Williams-Shakespeare shares dissertation on Online Learner-Learner Interaction Design and Experiences

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.

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.

RE: Invitation to Join the Mentorship Programme, UTech Jamaica AY 2019/20

Dear  Alumni and Friends of UTech, Jamaica,

Can you remember a time when you felt lonely, confused, completely overwhelmed?

Can you remember a time when you were at a crossroads, needing to make a critical do-or-die decision, but didn’t have the experience or information you needed, or the confidence to just-make-the-decision and move on with your life powerfully?

Can you remember a time when you just needed someone that you knew for sure was in your corner? Someone who had time for you…to listen, to understand, to encourage…to give you room to explore and fail without judgment, as well as to celebrate with you when you got it right?

At those times, I hope you had someone who offered you a safe space and support to work through these challenging life experiences, and be better, stronger, and wiser for it. (more…)

Alumni Have Your Say

We believe that your perspectives will help educate the public on the great value of UTech, Jamaica’s contribution to Jamaica. The question is as follows:

Q: What is the value of UTech, Jamaica’s
Contribution to Jamaica?


 

UTech, Knights Have Your Say – What’s The Value of UTech, Jamaica’s Contribution to Jamaica | UTech, Jamaica Government Subvention Issue

Dear UTech, Knights and Friends,

In a letter to the editor of the Jamaica Observer, dated Monday 25th February, 2019 one Lipton Matthews wrote “UTech protest unwise” and made this reference Taxpayers could easily ask UTech to quantify its contribution to Jamaica, and if results show that the value created by the university is less than the input of taxpayers, then they will argue that UTech must receive less funding” (more…)

WHAT IS THE UTech Jamaica GOVERNMENT SUBVENTION ISSUE?

Recent news reports tell us that the House of Representatives has approved the second Supplementary Estimates. The Government plans to spend an additional $11.45 billion for this financial year. The Minister of Finance’s statement on the matter should be noted. He said that this “favourable fiscal performance resulted from a confluence of higher than projected revenue and grants and below programmed expenditure”.

Among the increases that were announced was a $963-million increase in subvention for The University of the West Indies (UWI). There is no doubt that UWI deserves every bit of these funds, and more. Stakeholders at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) had been expectant that there would be an increase in subvention. But, alas! Not a penny for the national university. There is no evidence so far that efforts are being made to address the glaring inequity in the per student subvention allocation for UTech’s students. Why was UTech ignored, again?

Dear Alumni,

In my other professional hat as a Life & Career Coach, on February 4th, 2019, I shared the post below on LinkedIn and my other social media sites, to help professionals think clearly about their current financial position. In addition, I wanted to help them think clearly about their options to improve their financial health. The post has been well received and so I thought that it may be of help to you as well. Please see below.

DID YOU KNOW that JAD $1M = $50,000 net a month approx? (***Please check with your payroll department or an accountant who knows our current tax rate to get the exact figure)
