Fonds documents Jack Jones' involvement in a series of teacher education projects in Anguilla and Montserrat that Nipissing University conducted with partners including the ministries of education of Anguilla and Montserrat, the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Responding to a lack of professional development opportunities for teachers in the Caribbean islands of Anguilla and Montserrat, the early projects provided teacher training workshops while later projects aimed to establish on-site teacher training processes in cooperation with the University of the West Indies. Jones played various roles in the projects, acting as an instructor, international liaison officer, and project director.
