Technology-Enhanced Professional Learning
Welcome to the HEA Technology-Enhanced Professional Learning Special Interest Group (TEPL SIG) (previous HEA Supporting Sustainable eLearning Forum SIG). The mission of TEPL SIG is to provide a platform for exploration and debate of ideas and findings arising from research in technology-enhanced professional learning and their application in learning practice both in the Higher Education and in other types of organisations.
TEPL SIG addresses professional learning in two ways. Firstly, through promoting dialogue between researchers and practitioners active in the field of technology-enhanced professional learning, in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Secondly, TEPL facilitates capacity building by providing opportunities for early-stage researchers to meet and work with leading researchers and practitioners in the field of TEL.
Technology-enhanced Professional Learning: processes, practices and tools
'Technology-enhanced Professional Learning: processes, practices and tools' is a new book we have recently published to mark 10 years of our Special Interest Group in Technology-enhanced Professional Learning (TePL). Technology-Enhanced Professional Learning addresses the need for continuous workplace learning that derives from the emergence of new, specialized, and constantly changing work practices. While continuous learning is fundamental to enabling individuals to function in and productively shape contemporary workplaces, digital technology is increasingly central to productive workplace practice. By examining the intersection of human learning processes, emergent work practices, and patterns of use of digital technology to support learning and work, this edited collection brings the disparate fields of professional learning and technology-enhanced learning together to advance theory and practice in both realms.
The book is edited by the SIG Directors, Allison Littlejohn and Anoush Margaryan, who have selected a group of authors and commentators who are distinguished researchers. These twenty-two contributors are based in ten different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Estonia, Finland, the Netherlands, Serbia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America). Their research spans Professional Learning, Technology-enhanced Learning, Computer-supported Collaborative Work, Human Resources Development, Computer Science and Information Systems. They offer a range of thematic perspectives including expansive learning, expertise development, networked learning, mimetic learning, organisational learning, distributed and crowd work, semantic web, collaborative technologies, and simulation games.
