About the call for members of the Education Advisory Panel (EAP)
The Education Advisory Panel
(EAP) is a new advisory group being established to support user-centred design work on developmenteducation.ie. The EAP will involve a diverse group of educators that can give direct feedback on the piloting and implementation of the programme. As an independent quality-check mechanism, the EAP will be tasked with giving feedback and suggestions as part of consolidating a user-centred design approach in the programme.
