The Adrian Dominican School of Education graduated its first Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction cohort from The Bahamas in May 2012. Barry faculty traveled to Nassau to provide face-to-face instruction to prepare effective educators for twenty-first century learners. Graduate Johnette Cooper-Lockhart said, “This is the best university in the world! This program has prepared me with quality instruction and practical hands-on tools to take back to the classroom. All of our classes were connected and very applicable to teaching and learning. We truly became a family of reflective lifelong learners.”

Former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Elma Garraway gave remarks at the Curriculum and Instruction Graduation Celebration, “I want to offer a special thanks to Barry University Officials for working with us to make the program a reality here in The Bahamas. It will indeed afford many teachers within our nation an opportunity to enhance their skills and competencies; hence our education system and our children will be greater benefactors.”

Associate Dean, Dr. Jill Farrell continues to travel to The Bahamas, engaging in conversations with government and school leaders about the current need for highly effective teachers for the twenty-first century student. Dr. Farrell often appears on The Guardian’s Morning Blend Radio Show with host and Barry graduate Dwight Strachan to discuss how Barry University’s graduate programs meet the needs of Bahamian educators.

In response to the desire for further training in these specialized fields, ADSOE launched two new cohorts this fall: the Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction (with an Early and Middle Childhood Education specialization) and the Master’s in Exceptional Student Education (Special Education). The Master’s in Organizational Learning and Leadership cohort is expected to begin January 2013.
