Experiential Education

"Experiential education" is the systematization of experiential learning opportunities, across campus and in the community. At UPEI, the new Experiential Education and Work-Integrated Learning office showcases and supports the university's experiential programs and initiatives, while building capacity to help students navigate an increasingly complex work world.

Professionalization Badge

In 2018-19, the Experiential Ed office is offering a new, non-credit digital Professionalization badge for UPEI students who want to develop and demonstrate their professional competencies. Sign up here to be added to our mailing list for workshop schedules and program updates.

You can access the Professionalization badge program and resources through our Moodle courses. Enrol yourself by following these links:
