Our research is at the forefront of development in TEL, driving innovations in teaching, learning, and assessment which have worldwide influence.

We develop and evaluate new methods, models, systems, and technologies. We investigate how innovative technologies can help people learn in different places – using their smartphones, for example, or through technology embedded in the environment – and how these technologies can enhance learning and empower learners.
