THANK YOU!

The Faculty would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who participated in the Graduate Education Research Conference held July 16 & 17.  The event featured the research work of the three finishing MEd cohorts, and it was a huge success.

PROCESS CHANGES

Please note the following changes to policies and processes within the Faculty of Education:

OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES

Overhead transparencies are no longer to be made with Faculty of Education printers or photocopier.  Instructors that have used transparencies are asked to find alternate ways to project their visuals, perhaps through smart boards or electronic means.

TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION

The University requires that any travel outside the province for University business or in the performance of University duties (with the exception of PDTR travel of 5 days or less) must be authorized in writing in advance of travel using the Travel Authorization Form.  That form can be found here.

BOOKSTORE INFORMATION

The UPEI Bookstore requests that ALL instructors provide them with information on textbook requirements, even if you will not require a textbook for your course.  This will ensure that books can be ordered in a timely manner, and that students are provided with accurate information on textbook requirements.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matters.

UPDATE ON SUMMER FRENCH CAMP

Let’s learn and plays en français is doing very well, with two more weeks of fun still to come!  Camp counsellors, Kristen, Shannon and Emily are doing an excellent job with activities to engage the children and get them all speaking French! Theses photos from their Discovering the World theme hint at all the fun that’s happening everyday! If you have a chance, stop by the camp to say “hi!”  You can find them in the sports centre next  to the interior walking trail.

Beau travail Kristen, Shannon et Emily!
