UWI Staff Member
Pamela spent 10 years as a Business Studies teacher in Barbados and the United Kingdom. Most recently she had been employed as an Accreditation Officer with the Barbados Accreditation Council. Pamela holds a first-class honours Bachelor degree in Initial Teacher Education from the University of the West of England, a Master in Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Assessment from the Institute of Education now the UCL Institute of Education, and a Ph.D. in Education from The University of the West Indies (The UWI), Cave Hill Campus.
The title of her Ph.D. thesis was ‘Factors that affect the success of distance online students in the Caribbean’. Her previous research interest includes the effect that pedagogical styles may have on students’ academic achievement and factors affecting the attainment of black boys, from Caribbean extractions, in the United Kingdom.
Pamela is employed by The University of the West Indies in its Quality Assurance Unit and is assigned Open Campus. Her goal for that entity is to see it grow into its full potential through the maximisation of positive learning experiences to students. She believes that this goal may be achieved through the cultivation of a positive teaching and learning culture which permeates every facet of the Campus.
Pamela is inspired by the words of Philip Crosby who said “quality is the result of a carefully constructed cultural environment. It has to be the fabric of the organization, not part of the fabric”. She looks forward to assisting The UWI and the education arena both locally and regionally to further develop this mosaic of quality.
