Workshop Series: Preparing to Take the EPI

These four workshops are designed for Graduate Students who plan to take the English Proficiency Interview (EPI). The workshops are free, but registration is required. Space is limited, so register early at http://go.illinois.edu/EPI_Workshop_Registration. First-time test-takers and students re-taking the EPI are eligible to attend. Each workshop will focus on a different part of the EPI, including the EPI's structure, how it's scored, preparation tips, definition of terms, responding to open-ended questions, strategies for effective interviewing, and activities and resources you can use on your own to prepare for the EPI. During each session, you'll also have time to practice what you've learned and receive brief feedback. Detailed information about the EPI can be found at http://citl.illinois.edu/citl-101/measurement-evaluation/english-proficiency-interview.

Description:

 

Most teachers get evaluated by their students at the end of the course by implementing ICES.  But by then, it is too late to make changes that will make a difference for your current students.  You should check in with your students before it is too late.  Come to this workshop to learn how to design, implement, and interpret Informal Early Feedback (IEF) to improve the class experience for everyone.

 

Don't forget:  conducting IEF is an important requirement of the Graduate Teacher Certificate!

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
