Technology-Enhanced Learning in Higher Education: Where are we?

TEL in HE was a half-day seminar held on 21 May 2019. The overarching goal of the event was to provide a platform for discourse on TEL challenges and opportunities in HE context as well as to provide hands-on sessions on harnessing affordances of technology in different learning contexts.  

Opening Address by Prof. Dr. Marcus Specht, Scientific Director of LDE-CEL

TEL in different learning spaces

Interactive Session I: TEL in different learning spaces by Lisa O’ Neill. Lisa spoke on redesigning learning spaces with and through technologies. 

Seamless learning workshop

Interactive Session II: Designing mobile and seamless learning lessons by Ellen Rusman & Esther Tan. During the hands-on session, participants worked in small groups to design a seamless learning scenario leveraging technological tools to facilitate a continuous learning process.

Blended learning

Interactive Session III: Blended learning by Wiebe Dijkstra. Participants learnt how to develop a sequence of online and offline learning activities.

SRL workshop

Interactive Session IV: Online self-regulated learning by Martine Baars & Jacqueline Wong. Participants discussed the range of possible activities to support self-, co- & shared regulation as well as harnessing technological affordances (e.g., prompts, apps) in supporting self-regulation in online learning environments.

In the attachment are the slides of the plenary session as well as the workshops.

Thank you for your participation and interest in the event.
