Poly Business Librarian Lisa Zilinski is the proud owner of Echo, a recently certified therapy dog. Lisa worked with the Psychology Club to help certify Echo. The German-Australian shepherd mix visited some cognitive science classes as well to help students discuss the benefits of animal-assisted therapy, as well as cognition and learning in dogs.
It was a great opportunity for the students to get a great hands-on, applied learning opportunity, which is integral part of a polytechnic education.
