Call for Papers: Thematic Series on 'Technology Enhanced Learning or Learning driven by Technology?'

Technology Enhanced Learning or Learning driven by Technology?

International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'Technology Enhanced Learning or Learning driven by Technology?'

Students’ expectations have evolved during the last decade about how and when to study. Traditional teaching methodologies based on static material or master classes are not always the best approach to promote learning. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been introduced to enhance the way the teaching is undertaken. Utilizing ICT in education, or in other words Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), can facilitate efficient e-learning models where technology helps learners to build students’ knowledge. Online learning is continuously promoting new methodologies for learning by using the technology as a cornerstone for this type of development. Onsite teaching focuses on maintaining the interest of the learner by applying active learning or by moving to blended learning and using the technology as a new resource in the learning process. Thus, instructors and practitioners face revolutionary changes in teaching methodologies since the introduction of TEL. Technology is evolving incredibly fast, new trends are appearing and, also, the expectations of all actors (i.e. teacher and learners). Technology is helping to develop new teaching methodologies but technology is not the only resource to foster students’ knowledge. This thematic series focuses on disseminating learning experiences and critical studies enhanced by technology and not compelled by the use of technology. 

This collection series aims to disseminate innovative teaching methodologies using TEL. Authors are encouraged to submit papers related, but not limited, to the following topics of interest:
• Innovative teaching methodologies in higher education.
• Online, blended and face-to-face learning experiences by using Technology Enhanced Learning. 
• Pedagogical models and theories underpinning Technology Enhanced Learning.
• Technology Enhanced Learning Systems.
• Active learning methodologies.
• Assessment and Evaluation in Technology Enhanced Learning.

Submission deadline: November 5th, 2018
