Jamaica. The Program convened a meeting between CCCJ and the Bureau of Standards of Jamaica (BSJ), a regulatory body that promotes higher standards in commodities, processes and practices. The meeting highlighted opportunities for a partnership between CCCJ and BSJ to support the Advance-supported degree programs at CCCJ in terms of content and pedagogy. The Program also conducted activities with faculty and students to assess the rollout of piloted curricula. For example, the Program met with a lecturer from the Health and Wellness Tourism to discuss suggestions related content overlaps and a need for more practical activities within the Spa Techniques module. The Program will meet with and work with CCCJ to address these recommendations in the coming quarter. Anecdotally, lecturers teaching the Agro-Processing and Business Management have commended the involvement of industry experts in the development of the curriculum and are keen on the industry relevant skills being included as part of course delivery. The Program also met with a total of 55 students from CCCJ studying Agro-processing & Business Management and Health and Wellness Tourism, as well as students from VTDI studying Animation, to collect qualitative data on their experiences with the revised curricula. In general students indicated that they became more adjusted to the curricula as the semesters went by and expressed that their courses were practical and relevant to the real- world. As part of a related feedback survey, 90 percent of students from a sample of 93 said they were enjoying their degree. Along with gathering direct feedback from faculty and students, Advance ’s M&E team conducted six classroom observations of the following courses: Food Chemistry (Agro-processing, CCCJ); Small Business Management, Applied Math, and Spa Techniques (Health and Wellness Tourism, CCCJ); Script Development (Animation, VTDI); and Public Relations (Events and Entertainment Management, VTDI). The purpose of these observations was to ensure that curriculum implementation is aligned with the curriculum outline, identify gaps in delivery and content, and review the use of soft skills in the classroom. The observations revealed that students are engaged in relevant, real-world activities; teachers use diverse and engaging pedagogical strategies including individual and group work, case studies, and debates; and students are developing a wide range of soft skills including self- efficacy, communication, critical thi...
Jamaica. The Program met with several representatives from VTDI, including the Principal, three non-teaching staff and 4 teaching staff, to discuss retention strategies, subgrant monitoring and management of the scholarship program, with particular emphasis on incentives reimbursement and improving communication channels. By the end of the meeting, the Program and VTDI had a clear plan of action regarding the retention and reimbursement of incentives to students, including monthly on-the -ground check-ins with students and increased efforts to submit incentive forms on a timely basis. The Program continued to conduct monitoring visits to meet with and talk to all scholarship recipients at CCCJ and VTDI. Feedback from recipients received indicated that they have been able to adjust to the routine of tertiary education and are enjoying their program of study. One cohort of scholarship recipients, enrolled in the Health and Wellness Tourism program at Excelsior Community College, mentioned that they see the value of the degree that they are pursuing, and they are grateful for the opportunity via the scholarship to receive the training. The Program visited the Xxxx Community College of CCCJ to conduct monitoring activities. During the feedback session, a lecturer committed to provide additional support services for Advance’s 10 scholarship students in Agro-Processing and Business Management programs. The lecturer gave the students general feedback on the previous semester’s exams, identifying that it was clear that students had knowledge but there were different challenges in students’ ability to adequately transfer that knowledge on the exam. As a result, the faculty at Xxxx Community College will conduct study sessions and exam preparation sessions to help scholarship students improve their study skills, develop improved strategies for writing exams, and improve their overall academic performance.
Jamaica. As noted in Core Administrative Activities, Activity 3, the Program worked with each of the three institutions to establish a curriculum review task force, which is in charge of overseeing the curriculum strengthening process. The Program also engaged two local industry specialists to work with curriculum task teams at VTDI and CCCJ to strengthen the Entertainment and Events Management Program and the Health and Wellness Tourism Program, respectively. This quarter, both specialists completed a diagnostic of existing curricula, interviewed lecturers in each degree program, and observed classroom practices and teaching methods to inform the curriculum strengthening process.
Jamaica. The Program completed the recruitment and selection processes for scholarship recipients at CCCJ and VTDI, awarding 38 total scholarships: 26 to students in the Health and Wellness Tourism program at CCCJ and 12 to students in the Entertainment and Events Management Program at VTDI. The Program participated in the scholarship student orientation process at VTDI, giving a brief presentation and distributing letters announcing selected scholarship recipients. The Program also attended the orientation process at two CCCJ institutions (Port more Community College and Montego Bay Community College). Through the recruitment and selection process, the Program generated important lessons learned on the need to tailor the scholarship recruitment and selection processes to each institution. For example, most of scholarship applicants to VTDI applied online while most students applying to CCCJ submitted hard copies directly to the universities. CCCJ also used Whatsapp to target potential scholarship recipients. The Program will continue using a blended approach of online and manual applications, as well as outreach through community organizations, to target future potential scholarship recipients.
Jamaica. The Program collected data on students enrolled at all partner institutions during Q4 which indicates that 87 students completed their academic studies in Year 6. A total of 29 graduates are either pursuing or are awaiting to be accepted in a bachelor’s degree program. The pandemic has limited the Program in reporting on new or better employment as students have opted to pursue further studies as opposed to seeking employment during the economic downturn. This shift indicates that Advance has been impactful in creating opportunities for higher learning as students who were once unable to access higher education are now using associate degree level certification to pursue further studies. Dominican Republic: The Program was able to get and validate enrollment data from both institutions, ITLA and ITSC, receiving the total enrollment figures for the nursing degree program at ITSC. Advance worked closely with institutions and provided feedback to improve future data collection efforts. Activity 3: Conduct a qualitative study to assess Program's outcomes on: 1) changes in pedagogy and teacher practices, 2) changes in institutions' capacity to increase access and better serve the needs of disadvantaged students Honduras and Guatemala: Advance finalized both reports in Honduras and Guatemala and shared final versions with USAID. The research team presented the findings internally to each country team to reflect on the findings and discuss ways that the research may help inform future work in Jamaica and the DR. It also served as a useful example for teams on how formative studies may be incorporated into the project cycle for learning. Advance also made a formal presentation of the findings to USAID and DevTech. A few findings from the Guatemala study include: • Advance strengthened the institutional capacity of universities by defining best practices, accompanying during concrete change processes in universities and providing theoretical underpinnings that allow staff to understand the rationale behind the best practices discussed in each area of intervention. A few examples include: o Pedagogy and technical knowledge: the guided visits and study tours attended by faculty within the framework of Advance managed to consolidate and update their knowledge and skills in their respective disciplines, strengthening their confidence in the classroom.
