MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am the Head of the Centre for Excellence and Innovation in Learning (CEIL) at the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Science at the Fiji National University. I am also the Programme Coordinator for the Health Services Management Programme at the College.
The Centre was established to support exemplary teaching, and to facilitate the continued professional development of Academic Staff in innovative teaching practices. We aim to advance innovative teaching and learning by piloting, evaluating and supporting innovative teaching and learning practices at the College. The Centre sees ICT as being integral to this. As such I am always looking at the use of technology in innovative practices in teaching and learning globally in order to see what could work for my institution and of course what will work in a developing country that caters for the regional (South Pacific) needs in training and development.
Currently, I teach the Master of Health Services Management programme which runs entirely online and accepts students from the Pacific region. I am always on the lookout on how I can improve on the use of technology to deliver this fully online programme. We currently deliver it through Moodle and integrate other technologies and software to support this deliver. Whilst Fiji has reasonable, cheap, consistent and fast internet, this isn't always the case in other Pacific Island nations that rely on us for their education and training needs. My challenge then is how to deliver online courses in settings that have inconsistent, irregular and slow internet access.
I am keen to share my experience and learn from the MirandaNet Community. I am particularly interested in technology and innovative teaching and learning practices.
