PEI Energy Systems has notified Facilities Management that one of their chillers has broken down. This chiller is one of the chillers that provide cooling for the Atlantic Veterinary College, Robertson Library, Kelley Memorial Building, Duffy Science Centre, Steel Building and the Health Sciences Building.  While there is still cooling provided with the remaining two chillers you may notice that the cooling is not sufficient with the anticipated higher temperatures over the next few days.  
 
PEI Energy Systems is working at the repairs necessary to have the chiller back up and running as quickly as possible.  I will provide an update as soon as we receive more information.
 
Facilities Management apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact Jackie MacPhail at jmacphail@upei.ca or 902-566-6034.

All are welcome to attend Sahra Alhanaya MEd Presentation, "Technology in K-12 classrooms and teacher education:  A literature review".

 Open to the Public, June 27, 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm. Closed session 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm in 280N of the AVC.

This study reviews existing research conducted between 2007 and 2017, regarding integrating technology in K-12 classrooms and preparing K-12 teachers for using technology in their classrooms. The present study examines studies concerning the integration of technology in K-12 classrooms and investigates professional development models for encouraging pre-service and in-service teachers to use technology.

This study synthesizes quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods studies in order to have a comprehensive view of existing research. Based on a review of 45 articles concerning integrating technology in K-12 classrooms, and 50 articles focusing on K-12 teachers' professional development regarding technology, this review found that there were relatively few empirical studies conducted in actual K-12 classrooms and relatively few studies of embedded professional development. This study seeks to contribute to current research focused on integrating technology in K-12 classrooms and on K-12 teachers' professional development about teaching with technology. It recommends more empirical research in K-12 classrooms and more research on K-12 teachers' embedded professional learning about technology.

Strategic Construction Ltd has been awarded the contract for the Memorial Hall Level 2 Renovations Project. Construction is expected to begin as early as Monday, June 25, 2018 and is expected to be complete by the end of August 2018. During this time there will be noise and possibly some vibrations. This area will be considered a construction zone. The project will focus on a portion of level 2 to be renovated to create a suite of office and support space, including, electrical, mechanical and architectural systems upgrades.

While the contractors have been instructed that the work be executed with the least possible interference or disturbance to the campus community, a certain amount of disruption is inevitable. Your patience and understanding is appreciated as we proceed with this renovation project that will enhance the facility.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jackie MacPhail at 566-6034 or jmacphail@upei.ca.
