Project Description: 

This project was funded through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and awarded to the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX).  The University of Tennessee researchers were contracted to conduct the project, where the researchers worked with a Jordanian university, its professors and its students to strengthen the quality of the program by upgrading their technologies and updating curriculums and teaching materials.  The researchers also conducted workshops for Jordanian faculty and students, work on faculty-student communication, developed training programs, and worked to develop a joint master’s degree program.
