Technology enhanced learning (TEL) toolkit

The use of technology to maximise the student learning experience is a vibrant area of interest across all tiers of global education. Technology enhanced learning (TEL) is often used as a synonym for e-learning but can also be used to refer to technology enhanced classrooms and learning with technology, rather than just through technology.

Flexible pedagogies: technology-enhanced learning Our Flexible Pedagogies: preparing for the future research series includes a publication that focuses on a better understanding of technology enhanced learning, including highlighting some of the challenges and opportunities that TEL brings to HE.

How to start using technology in your teaching Based on his experience within medical education Dr James Pickering, Most Innovative Teacher of the Year (2014), offers a simple walkthrough highlighting the lessons he has learnt. He provides top tips and explores some examples of best practice, making this a great resource to get you started with incorporating technology into your practice.

This toolkit brings together ideas and pedagogies that are influencing today’s academic practice in relation to TEL. Exploring this toolkit will help you to:

  • Through our HEAtoZ you will be in the know about how technology enhanced learning is defining our academic world.
  • Hear from colleagues in the sector through case studies.
  • Where is the evidence? Get up to speed with the research that discusses ‘high impact’ pedagogical practices to foster student engagement and success.
