UPEI continues to offer a variety of printing services on a user-pay basis. When UPEI migrated its networks from Novell to Microsoft Active Directory this past spring, there was an issue with the PaperCut system that collects payments from the printers. In order to maintain printing capabilities and avoid any service disruption, UPEI waived printing fees on a temporary basis.

The issue with PaperCut has now been resolved and UPEI will resume collecting fees on Monday, November 20, 2017.

Students requiring printing services at the UPEI may click here for more information, to ensure they have funds available, or to add money to their PaperCut account.

The Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre and the AVC Animal Welfare Club are starting a journal club. The group will meet once a month starting January 19, 2018 to discuss articles in the areas of:

  • animal welfare science
  • animal ethics
  • animal behaviour
  • anesthesia and analgesia

Please email acrook@upei.ca or jdamico@upei.ca to be on the e-mail list for future information.

Here is the plan:

  • Meet at lunch hour (12:30- 1:20) the third Friday of the month, starting January 19(Room TBD).
     
  • Anyone can sign up for the e-mail list. You will then receive an e-mail notice of the upcoming article for discussion about a week before the journal club meets, in which we will tell you who will be presenting the article, the citation of the article, a link to download it, and the abstract (so people can decide if they would like to attend and/or download the full article via UPEI paid access). This is better than attaching the pdf to the e-mail, for copyright reasons.)
     
  • One article will be presented per session (rotating presenters). The person who has chosen the article will submit it to Alice Crook a week ahead of time so attendees will have the opportunity to read the article before the meeting, but presenters should be aware that not everyone will have had time to read it and should address this in their presentation of the article i.e. begin with a background to the study before the critique.
     
  • The first 20 minutes or so will be the person who has chosen it taking us through the background to it (and why they chose it – why they think we should know about it) and the study itself (with critique). The next 15/20 minutes will be a group discussion around the subject invoked by the article. e.g. what can we learn from it? What can we do better? Critical appraisal is encouraged.

All are welcome to sign up and join these interesting discussions!

Learning is an action that only the student can own and control. As an instructor, what can be done to help a student maximize his/her learning capabilities? In this workshop, instructors will learn about three key skills that contribute to more efficient and effective learning. Those skills are how to take notes, how to read for learning, and how to study effectively.

Offered by the E-Learning Office, this workshop is available on two separate dates. Wednesday, November 22 or Tuesday, November 28 from 1:00-2:00 pm in Rm 265, Robertson Library. Register!
