In August of 2019, I was signed as the Communications Consultant for the NTI – a UN Joint Programme that targets SDG4c. As an individual specialist, I have been supporting the Education Section – UNESCO Paris to design, develop and disseminate key messages and reports to all stakeholders involved. The Norwegian Teacher Initiative (NTI) is a UN Joint Programme funded by NORAD that promotes an integrated response among key education partners and national education authorities towards the realization of SDG target 4C within the Education 2030 framework. The project involves four African countries: Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi and Uganda, and has two main outcomes: 1) improved coordination among partner organizations and 2) strengthened national teacher policies that impact teaching, learning and contribute to teacher targets. NTI’s aim is to mobilize key global education partners in favour of teachers and teaching for improved learning, and draws on the comparative advantages of seven cooperating partners: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Task Force on Teachers (TTF), The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Education International (EI), The Global Partnership for Education (GPE), The International Labour Organization (ILO), and The World Bank.
I served as the eLearning Specialist by the CLL/UWI for the “Spanish for Specific Purposes for Caribbean Airlines” course. I undertook the design and development of a self-paced, asynchronous learning solution for Caribbean Airlines Staff. I worked closely with the lead SME (Subject Matter Expert) to design and develop 10 online modules or multimedia learning objects.
