2002 ePrep International Workshop
Nathalie Van de Wiele at the 2002 International ePrep Workshop
Compaq, Sophia Antipolis, May 5 & 6, 2002
Information and communication technologies for the expansion and the development of « classes préparatoires » for « grandes écoles » and similar establishments
Since the use of ICT had become a reality in CPGE teaching, the time had come to think about how and with what goals their use could be extended.
So that the teachers in CPGE could share their experiences and their ideas, ePrep organised, under the auspices of the "Union des Professeurs de Spéciales" (UPS) and in association with all the other CPGE teachers' Unions, the 2002 ePrep Workshop, entitled "Information Technologies for the development and expansion of CPGE and similar establishments".
Heralded by an article in the Monde de l'Education (pdf 469 KB), the ePrep Workshop, held on 6 & 7 May in Sophia Antipolis, brought together 170 participants (pdf 29 KB), of whom about 90 were teachers in CPGE.

And the support of
The Workshop was international in its scale with 8 countries
represented and was organised in plenary sessions and thematic
parallel sessions. It achieved the goals it set itself very
successfully: to create the ideal environment for information
and discussion, leading to a consensus as to the foundations
for a programme of actions.
The ePrep Workshop owes its success to all the partners associated with it (see below).
