ESRC/EPSRC £1M+ Technology Enhanced Learning

Posted: Tuesday, 17 June 2008 00:00

The London Knowledge Lab has won a second ESRC/EPSRC award in Technology Enhanced Learning. LKL Prof Diana Laurillard is leading an interdisciplinary team of researchers, including George Magoulas as the Birkbeck PI. This £1M+ grant aims to develop an interactive environment - a Learning Design Support Environment (LDSE) - to enable teachers to lead the discovery of innovative pedagogical designs that exploit the potential of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and better integrate TEL in the mainstream provision, processes and practice of educational institutions. The LDSE will provide a space where teachers can explore, model and share ways of normalising their uses of technology, and build on each others work. The LDSE promotes a view of teaching that is closer to a science of learning design and is both a personal, reflective journey, and also a social, collaborative activity.
