Teaching and Learning Research Programme: Technology Enhanced Learning
- Start date: 01 April 2009
- End date: 30 June 2013
TEL aims to improve the quality of formal and informal learning, and to make accessible forms of knowledge that were simply inaccessible before. But research does not translate easily into practice, at school, in higher education or in the workplace. The forms of pedagogy that characterise learning in these settings have remained more or less invariant even when radical technologies have been introduced.
Technology of itself doesn’t enhance learning! It depends how the technology is designed and implemented; how teachers are supported to use it; how outcomes are measured; what communities are in place to support it.
TEL, co-funded by ESRC and EPSRC and led by Professor Richard Noss at the London Knowledge Lab has 8 large projects across the UK running between 2007-2012 in a variety of learning setting looking at ways in which technology can be used to improve learner outcomes.
