Teacher Professional Development Survey

Ecology Project International has been engaging teachers and students in experiential, place-based science learning since 2000. We would like to start offering more PD to teachers, and want to know what would be most useful to YOU.

Please take 10 minutes to complete this survey, so we can create PD opportunities that will fit your needs.

Once you complete the survey, you'll be entered to win one of several raffle prizes: $100 off an upcoming EPI Educator course, $25 gift card to EPI's online store, or a free EPI hydroflask.
