UACT panel to feature Columbia education center
The University Advisory Committee on Teaching (UACT) will hold its second teaching and learning panel on Tuesday, April 18. The event will start at 4 p.m. in the Jones Room of Woodruff Library. Two faculty members from Columbia University and members of UACT will talk about Columbia’s Center for Education Research and Evaluation (CERE), and the possibilities for bringing such a center to Emory.

Currently, Columbia’s CERE offers faculty assistance with all types of teaching and learning, including curriculum planning, student assessment, syllabus design and test construction. The center also works to promote scholarship in health and science education.

For more information, contact Donna Troka, program development coordinator for UACT, at dtroka@emory.edu or call 404-712-8704.

April 10–14 is National Donor Week
April is National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month. Through the week of April 10–14, Emory Healthcare will have information tables scattered around campus, where those interested can learn about the needs and benefits of transplantation and organ donation. One donor can potentially save up to nine lives. Emory Healthcare urges the community to “Donate Life.”
