Presentation For the Science for Impact- Building The Critical Mass. Workshop Facilitated by CTA and Jointly Organized by UNRE, NARI and USP School of Agriculture and Food Technology, Samoa

Theme 3. Producing the Kinds of Graduates Required.

Dr Alan Quartermain spoke on how UNRE has integrated its Degree programmes with Diploma programmes in Tropical Agriculture and Fisheries and Marine Resources. Integration allows for efficiency with common courses and recognition with a common first year and some joint courses of the common needs of agriculture and fisheries in resource management. Delayed streaming gives students more time post secondary school to determine desires and potentials, takes the pressure off the first year struggle to adapt and compete, reduces the loss of good potential agriculturists who cannot cope well with basic sciences and mathematics and allows students time to develop the skills and knowledge required for chosen careers. Degree students get a good practical grounding with their peers before the advanced science and management. Options exist for Diplomates to return for a Degree at a later date after work experience.

Transcript

  • 1. Combining Diplomas with Degrees – the UNRE History and Experience Alan Quartermain PNG University of Natural Resources and Environment
  • 2. Current Diplomas and Degrees
    • Diploma in Tropical Agriculture - 3 years - 2 campuses ENB and Oro
    • Diploma in Fisheries and Marine Resources – 3 years – 1 st year at ENB campus, 2 nd and 3 rd years at National Fisheries College, Kavieng
    • Bachelor of Tropical Agriculture – 4 years
    • Bachelor of Fisheries and Marine Resources – 4 years – 4 th year at ENB campus
  • 3. Integration of Agriculture and Fisheries
    • Common first year for agriculture and fisheries
    • Rationale is that many farmers are also fishers and fishers are farmers
    • Hence graduates may be required to understand and deal with people managing the resources and inter-relationships of gardening, farm forestry, fishing, aquaculture, coastal environments, waterways and natural vegetation
    • Common fourth year degree courses also in Resource economics, Research methods and experimental design, Statistics and data management, Biotechnology, Marketing and Aquaculture
  • 4. Integrating Diplomas with Degrees
    • Degree programmes built on existing Diploma programmes in both Tropical Agriculture and in Fisheries and Marine Resources
    • Generalised introductory first year with only the necessary basic science
    • Second year is very practical
    • Split into Diploma and Degree streams after second year
    • Differentiation then allows for different needs of the two streams in third year and concentration on advanced science in Degree fourth year
  • 5. Common First Year
    • Introduction to agriculture
    • Biology 1 and 2
    • Natural resources conservation and utilisation 1 and 2
    • Chemistry for agriculture and fisheries
    • Communications
    • Introduction to fisheries
    • Physical sciences for agriculture and fisheries
    • Introduction to management and economics
  • 6. Common Second Year – Tropical Agriculture
    • Sustainable land use
    • Plant production and soils 1 and 2
    • Plant protection
    • Animal production and aquaculture 1 and 2
    • Rural technology
    • Agricultural mechanisation
    • Farm management
    • Rural sociology
    • On-farm practice
  • 7. Comparison of Third Year Diploma and Degree
    • DIPLOMA
    • Extension methods
    • Post-harvest technology
    • Farmer experimentation
    • Monogastric animal production
    • Ruminant animal production
    • Crop production 1 and 2
    • Marketing
    • Farm business project
    • On-farm practice
    • DEGREE
    • Extension methods
    • Post-harvest technology
    • Research methods and experimental design
    • Plant nutrition
    • Animal nutrition
    • Six months industrial attachment
  • 8. Fourth Year Degree – Tropical Agriculture
    • Animal breeding
    • Plant breeding
    • Horticulture
    • Biotechnology
    • Resource economics
    • Advanced plant protection
    • Aquaculture
    • Marketing
    • Statistics and data management
    • Individual project
  • 9. Rationale
    • Delayed streaming gives more time post secondary school to determine desires and potentials
    • Takes the pressure off the first year struggle to adapt and compete
    • Reduces loss of good potential agriculturists who cannot cope with the level of basic sciences and mathematics
    • Yet allows time to develop skills and knowledge required for chosen careers
    • Note mathematics dropped as a separate subject but included later as needed where needed
    • Degree students get a good practical grounding with their peers before the advanced science and management
    • Options exist for Diplomates to return for a Degree at a later date after work experience
