As UPEI students prepare for the start of a new school year, faculty at the university are thinking about how to adapt to a changing student body. 

That was the topic of a professional development day at the university Tuesday. Faculty from all departments were invited to attend. 

"We can't just do things the way that we did 10 years ago," said Gerald Wandio, program co-ordinator for faculty development office, which hosted the event. 

"We have to find new ways of helping students learn. And this seemed a good opportunity to talk about it."
