Irish Evaluation Network
EQI provides a base and support for the Irish Evaluation Network, the development of which is supported and promoted by a Co-ordinating Committee composed of individuals' interested or involved in evaluation in Ireland.
The Network was established in late 2002, to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, seminars and conferences for people involved in evaluation in Ireland . It currently has run a variety of activities including Conferences and Lunchtime seminars.
As part of EQI’s commitment to enhance professional capacity in a range of evaluation related areas it has, in partnership with the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) agreed to host the Ollscoil Initiative. Conceptualised as a ‘space’ where individuals and organisations interested in the creation of and reflection on materials relevant to the professional lives of teachers and educators within Ireland and beyond Ollscoil is intended to act as a springboard for future engagement and reflection.
