The College employed a Blended Learning Methodology(BLM) . Our approach is not the same as technology-rich instruction. It goes beyond one-to-one computers and high-tech gadgets. Our Blended Learning Methodology(BLM) involves leveraging the Internet to afford each student a more personalized learning experience, meaning increased student control over the time, place, path, and/or pace of his or her learning.
At Global Accountancy College(GAC) we defines blended learning as: "a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace; at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home; and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience."– Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation
Currently there are two main mode of study namely: Face-to-Face(Blend) and Elearning (Blend) combined with it's Global Tutorial System(GTS).
Global Accountancy College officially launch its Global Tutorial System (GTS) to enhanced Its Blended Learning Methodology(BLM) on February 24, 2013 for ACCA, FIA, CAT, DipIFRS and CPA Examinations in Jamaica and the Caribbean.The College uses tutorials in additional to normal style lecture courses. The Global Tutorial System (GTS) includes one-on-one tutorial meeting between tutor, mentor and client. Clients are required to write weekly reports indicating what they have learnt from the various lectures that are assigned to them and the report forms the basis of tutorial discussions and Practice Questions. The flexibility of the individual tutorial allows each client to design their own study time table for ACCA, FIA, CAT, DipIFRS and CPA Courses.
Global Tutorial System(GTS) offers the best of both worlds! The online format combines the structured schedule and instructor and peer interaction of the Live format with the flexibility and portability of Self-Study. It is a combination of tutorials, lectures, demonstrations and seminars/classes which aims to deliver unparalleled individual academic support to our clients. Particularly, we seek to promote clients’ intellectual growth in a stimulating, relationship-based setting that adapts to individual learning styles and needs.
One benefit of the Global Tutorial System (GTS) is that our clients receive direct feedback on their course of study in a small discussion setting or one-to-one with their tutors and mentors. The Global Tutorial System has great value because it creates learning and assessment opportunities which are highly authentic and difficult to fake. The System allows you to study anywhere, anytime from any internet-connected computer or download materials and work offline. One of the objectives of the system is to foster the development of critical thinking which is widely lauded as one of the most vital educational goals today. Our teaching methodology seeks to develop inquisitive and independent minds capable of complex problem solving through deep engagement with significant ideas. It's learning that is flexible and convenient without geographical barriers. It's learning that relies on the Internet for access to learning materials as well as interaction with instructors and fellow learners.
Studying for your exams is a marathon not a sprint. It requires you to be well prepared, extremely dedicated, focus and expertly supported. We have designed and developed the Winning Formula to help you cross the finish line successfully.You will work within scheduled start- and end-dates, and assignment timelines. In some cases, the times you choose to work will be entirely up to you. Other courses will require you meet online with your class at a specific time. You will work within scheduled start- and end-dates, and assignment timelines. In some cases, the times you choose to work will be entirely up to you. Other courses will require you meet online with your class at a specific time.
Our philosophy is simple: there is more to learning than just finding information. For meaningful learning to take place that information must be structured and sequenced in such a way that a learner can move systematically from basic ideas and skills to more sophisticated ones. The strategies that work best in this process vary with the particular areas of interest concerned.
The founders of Global Accountancy College merge the skills and experience of university professors, certified classroom teachers, private instructors, curriculum and evaluation specialist, an educational philosopher, and university-based researchers into the effective uses of Web-based learning, in addition to a Web designer and a multimedia specialist. The college is the first to introduce the "Learning Hubs" concept in Jamaica where students can study at strategic locations. Together, Global Accountancy College(GAC), Becker Professional Education and ATC International will provide ACCA, FIA, CAT, CPA CIMA and CFA students with high quality study materials to maximise your chances of success.
Global Accountancy College uses only licensed Becker preparation methodology and study materials and is Becker Professional's exclusive representative in Jamaica.
