DIGITAL ECONOMY RESEARCH TEAM SUCCESSFULLY CONCLUDES FIRST PHASE OF RESEARCH PROJECT

The DERT team is delighted to announce that the first phase of their research project has come to a conclusion…with great success! First, students from two Island high schools – Three Oaks Senior High in Summerside and Colonel Gray in Charlottetown – successfully completed their projects with the help of a variety of industry professionals acting as cultural mentors. These projects, which ranged from video production, to animation, to murals, to live drama, were showcased at event nights in both cities. Most recently, adult education students taking English 621 at Holland College campuses across the province also had the opportunity to work with a cultural expert to complete multimedia projects. This past month, these students presented their portfolios of themed websites, original blog content, video production and more.

Congratulations to all of our participating students and graduates!

BOOK ORDERS

The UPEI Bookstore requests that instructors submit book orders for September classes as soon as possible.

If there are access codes/e-books for online course content, please include the ISBN for these items in your order. The Bookstore would like to give students more choices with the convenience of being able to pick up all of their course materials at the Bookstore. Many students take advantage of the different forms of payment the Bookstore offers, such as charging to their student account.

Please be sure to send the correct ISBN, especially for text packages and/or e-books to ensure ordering of the proper text books. If there is no text book required for a course, it would be greatly appreciated to notify the Bookstore also. Also, indicate if your course is cross listed.

If you require students to have other course materials such as specific calculators, dissection kits, clickers, graph paper, notebooks etc. you can email bookstore@upei.ca to ensure we will have sufficient quantities in the store.

You can order by using one of the following methods:

UPDATE ON THE MEMORIAL SHUFFLE

Memorial 402 has been shaken, stirred, and generally rearranged in terms of furniture.  Your trusty administrative team is slowly getting settled back, and is currently taking donations of plants, artwork, etc, to help in their efforts to spruce things up.  As well, an assortment of office paraphernalia (sorters, cords, phones, etc.) is available if you find your UPEI office could use a little something.

HURRAHS!

Nin-Na-Lnu-the-Mikmaq-of-PEI

The winners of the 2014 Atlantic Book Awards were announced recently and we send a big Hurrah out to Jesse Francis, the son of our own Carolyn Francis, as recipient of two of these awards.  Ni’n na L’nu: The Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island by Jesse Francis and A.J.B. Johnston (Acorn Press) won both the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association’s Best Atlantic-Published Book Award and the PEI Book Award – Non Fiction.

And a big shout out to the folks who got the heat going again in Memorial Hall.  After 2.5 days of heat deprivation, resorting to working in blankets and drinking copious amounts of hot caffeinated beverages (even more than usual!), the office residents of Memorial salute you (probably with another hot caffeinated beverage, but this time without mittens).
