ICEP Europe has been involved in a number of high profile projects with both national and international partners. Below is a short introduction to each project. To find out more click on a specific project at the bottom of the page.
The EAGLEs project aims to develop an innovative and practical training package for young unemployed people to acquire positive coping skills based on positive psychology principles as well as professional skills that will facilitate their personal development, their employability, and foster their entrepreneurial spirit.
The ALS (Adaptive Learning System) project aims at providing children presenting with learning disabilities a technology based adaptive learning approach, allowing a better inclusion and easier access to education and basic skills.
The iTIDE (Inclusion Training in Intellectual Disability for Educators in Europe) project is a European Commission Erasmus Plus funded three year (2014-17) initiative being conducted by partners from five European countries, including the Institute of Child Education and Psychology (ICEP) Europe, and the University of Limerick, in Ireland. This initiative aims to address the deficit in training in special needs education by making available outstanding online open access, practice-leading training materials.
A longitudinal study over three years examining how special education is provided within Irish schools, the experiences of pupils/students with special education needs (SEN) receiving this education and their associated outcomes.
With the current proliferation of online courses, there is a new and different dimension in the learning culture of teacher education. Many tutors are moving from traditional pedagogies of face-to-face (F2F) teaching to become online educators often with limited or no pedagogical training in this context. This project investigates the implications of this move to online training.
The purpose of this research project was to investigate the professional development requirements of second level teachers who have a specific remit to work with students who have special educational needs in mainstream school settings in both Northern and Southern Ireland.
