European Association for Practitioner Research on Improving Learning in education (EAPRIL)
Representative Frank de Jong  
Country that organisation based in International

Within the context of initial and lifelong learning, the aim of EAPRIL is to develop and promote learning and professional development of individuals, teams, organizations and networks. EAPRIL wants to promote and develop educational and training practices in educational, business and professional contexts, including workplace learning. EAPRIL brings together practitioners, researchers and policy-makers together in order to support practice-based research and its contribution to practice and theory.

The association promotes practice-based research on learning in different contexts (such as HRD, consultancy and schools) and across fields (such as engineering, medicine, nursing, business and education) and at different levels (individuals, teams, organizations and networks). EAPRIL is unique in bringing together those interested in the crossroads between research and practice and professional learning and education. EAPRIL's vision is that both academics and practitioners play an important role as researchers in the process of constructing shared knowledge and developing practice and theory.

The Department of Pedagogy and Education is part of the School of Social Sciences, University of Évora. Its main goal is to understand educational phenomena and formative processes, helping to improve the quality of education and training. To attain this, they need the cooperation of all school staff - teachers, trainers, education professionals, researchers, public and private institutions - and therefore the development of projects, partnerships and the achievement of internal and external collaboration are a vital part of internal dynamics.
