WINTER TEXTBOOK ORDERS

The UPEI bookstore is requesting textbook orders for Winter 2019 classes before
05-Nov-2018. 
Book orders for the semester can be submitted by email or through the on-line order form.

Please submit your book orders to the UPEI Bookstore as soon as possible.

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, please notify the Bookstore so that this can be noted on the student text list. Also, please indicate if your course is cross listed.

Please include the ISBN for any access codes/e-books that your course offers in your order. Please indicate if the access code is a requirement for the students to pass the course, or if it would be recommended for studying.

The Bookstore would like to give students more options for course materials (Binder editions, E-texts, Softcover, Used Books etc)

If you require students to have other course materials such as specific calculators, dissection kits, clickers, graph paper, notebooks etc. you can email the bookstore to ensure they have sufficient quantities in the store. Many students take advantage of the different forms of payment offered (such as charging to their student account), so being able to offer the supplies as well as the text provides them with the convenience of purchasing everything together.

The Faculty encourages all instructors to utilize the service of the bookstore as much as possible.

Your cooperation is much appreciated.

UPEI RECOGNIZES ORANGE SHIRT DAY – 28-SEPT-2018

every-child-mattersThis year, UPEI recognizes Orange Shirt day on Friday, 28-Sept-2018.  All students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to wear orange as an annual opportunity to discuss aspects of residential schools, and to continue discussions year-round.

Orange Shirt Day occurs annually at the end of each September, the time of year when Indigenous children were taken away from their homes and put into residential schools. It grew out of the story of Phyllis Wedstad, whose new orange shirt was taken away on her first day at residential school.  Her language and pride in her culture was also taken from her. Orange Shirt Day has been created in honour of Phyllis, and the many other children who attended residential schools. More information on this day can be found online at www.orangeshirtday.org.

UPEI Bookstore will be selling Orange Shirt Day shirts for $10 plus tax.

Thank you for your support in bringing awareness to Orange Shirt Day we hope that many of you will participate in wearing orange!

EDCAMP CHARLOTTETOWN 3.0: TECHUCATION

Ecamps define themselves as ‘un-conferences’ and function within a now well established worldwide model that includes: (i) a flexible free flowing agenda that gets chosen by the participants themselves on the day, (ii) the absence of formal speakers, (ii) a no-fee registration policy, and a democratic expectation that all participants join in the conversation equitably.  Edcamps encourage people to “choose with their feet” and freely circulate between discussions circles until they find the forums that genuinely engage them.  The events are community based and seek to break down silos and bring together educators, teachers, community and all key stakeholders in reform.  If you have never experienced an Edcamp, there is no time like now to try this remarkable formula.  Join us on June 9th for a day of dialogue and community building.

This year’s umbrella theme is entitled Tech-ucation and seeks to examine all aspects of the relationship between technology and education.  All conversation topics are welcomed.  The day event will be held in the Don and Marion McDougall Hall (MCDH) at UPEI.  Join us in Market Square at 9.30 over coffee and discuss the topic you would like to see discussed in sessions.

Follow all discussions on Twitter throughout the day at #edcampcharlottetown

For information and free registration, visit the Eventbrite page.
