‘TIM TALK” – 18-NOV-2015

As part of International Education Week, Dr. Tim Goddard presents a “Tim Talk” on  “International Education: Global Life in Local Spaces” on 18-Nov-2015 at 12:30pm.  The event will be be held in the AVC Learning Commons and will feature refreshments and door prizes.

During the presentation, Tim will address questions of internationalization on campus. What does an international education look like? How might domestic students globalize their degree? How can international students influence institutional life? What challenges face students, administrators, faculty, and staff who want to develop international awareness among all members of the campus community? Drawing upon the experience of the Faculty of Education as a case study, he will explore what an internationalized education might look like as well as the difficulties inherent in achieving such a vision.

For more information about the event, please contact Erin Clarke in UPEI’s International Relations Office.

GAMES NIGHT THANKS

We would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who came out for games night with students last Friday (06-Nov-2015).  A particular thank you to Ashley as organizer, and for her services as poker coach.  While we were unable to obtain student permissions in time to post actual pictures of the event, we recreated a famous work of art to help you imagine how great poker lessons can be.
