The new EPICT Group

The EPICT Group has been restructured to include a number of new partners. The main reason for this is to strengthen the international presence of EPICT and ensure continued development through a strong international collaboration. The partners are:

  • EPICT Australia
  • EPICT Ireland
  • EPICT Italy
  • EPICT UK
  • IPICT Lanka
  • Menon network, Belgium
  • UNI-C, Denmark

Currently we are discussing how to establish and organize work in our international Editorial Board. We hope to be able to provide further information on this shortly.

We see this as a clear strengthening of the EPICT concept, and we feel that the partners of the new EPICT Group cement the position of EPICT as a key player internationally in the area of teachers continued professional development.
