  •  Dialog with existing community partners
  •  Develop their own course syllabus
  •  Benefit from individual course design consultations
  •  Receive feedback from CEAL’s Student Advisory Group on Engagement
  •  Present their work at the EPI Symposium

The EPI is particularly relevant for those who wish to develop their teaching portfolio.  NOTE: Successful completion of the EPI satisfies Requirement B ("Learning about Teaching") for the CRLT Graduate Teaching Certificate.
