Seniors College is a non-profit organization affiliated with the University of Prince Edward Island and Skills Development and Learning. It offers non-credit courses for seniors so they can continue the joy of learning without the usual pressure of exams or papers.

Seniors College is hoping to re-offer the very successful ‘Sharing Our Research’ program in which UPEI researchers share their area of expertise with our members. It is seeking UPEI professors & researchers who are willing and able to give one Friday morning session during the months of January and February 2017. Each class would be one to one and a half hours long, with a presentation, time for questions and discussion.

Researchers interested in participating are asked to contact Barb Mullaly.

A strawberry social and potluck was held 09-July-2016,  hosted by Dr. Liz Townsend in her beautiful home.  We wish to extend a sincere thank you to Liz for her warm hospitality, and to everyone who came out to share in the lovely day.

Huge thanks to all the Faculty of Education folks who helped make #DigPed PEI such a success last week. The three-day event generated intense discussion on campus and online, with enthusiastic participation from educators from UPEI, Holland College, the Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture, Workplace Learning, and the PEI Career Development Association, as well as from around Canada, the US, and the UK. Thanks to all who committed time & energy as participants and as keynote attendees (virtual and in person). Special thanks to Ron, Karen-Anne, and Jill, who helped organize and support what turned out to be a smooth and successful three days! Watch this space for news of emerging collaborations on campus as a result.
