Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning
The Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning focuses on theoretical and practical challenges related to educational uses of technologies for teaching and learning in formal and informal educational settings.
The Centre is a hub for research and practice in technology enhanced learning. Underpinned by a small core team mostly based in the Department of Educational Research, the Centre has Associate Members drawn from a range of other departments across Lancaster University and from other groups worldwide with whom we maintain close links. We encourage the participation of a range of PhD students currently conducting their thesis research, and we benefit from the ongoing contributions of Alumni Members who previously obtained their doctorates in the Department.
Please visit our PhD pages to learn more about our flagship programmes.
RT @StudiesinTEL: Charles Barker examines systemic contradictions in a video-supported presentation activity, and shows how using #activitytheory in this way can point the way forward to re-designing the activity system. https://t.co/NpGX7uKzkd
RT @StudiesinTEL: Joanne Roxburgh uses #activitytheory to examine literature on 'lurkers' (non-posting students) in online learning communities, arguing that the phenomenon reflects a range of tensions in underlying activities, not technology or compliance problems. https://t.co/1i7r8BTyR8
RT @StudiesinTEL: This week we release two more articles from our #activitytheory special issue. Both reconceptualise complex issues in digital pedagogy. See below for more details on papers by Joanne Roxburgh and Charles Barker. @CtelLancaster @EdResLancaster
