Pre-conference Workshop at OnlineEduca Societal challenges, policy priorities and TEL: proposing a TEL research “relevance test”

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 10:00 to 18:00
Hotel InterContinental, Budapester Str. 2, 10787 Berlin, Germany. Room: Charlottenburg II

The Workshop, that has been organised by the HOTEL project with the support of the European Union’s FP7, gathered some of the most important Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) support and foresight initiatives of recent years, with the aims of reflecting on the issue of TEL research relevance. The discussion tackled the fact that TEL research, despite its recognised level of excellence and the strong efforts that funding agencies – especially the European Commission – are deploying, does not seem able so far to reach the relevance level which is needed to transform educational systems. The event was opened to Policy Makers at different levels, TEL Industry representatives, Teachers and researchers in higher education, Educational Practitioners, Media, Educational providers, and anyone interested in Technology-enhanced Learning.
