Technology for Equitable Learning Opportunities and Design

About the project

Technology enhanced learning (TEL) is being adopted in various ways at the University of Auckland (UoA). Large class sizes, need for flexibility and demand for digital technologies have led to flipped lectures, blended learning and large online courses. However, the absence of a guiding framework and/or resources on best practice with reference to global standards in TEL means there is minimum evaluation and critique of the impact of such innovations.

Case Studies Published

The TELOD project:

  1. Highlights how technology can support or hinder learning opportunities by increasing awareness of inclusive teaching practices and approaches.
  2. Develops strategies and tactics for inclusive teaching based on the minimum essential of inclusive design and good TEL practice principles identified in frameworks such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Quality Matters.
  3. Builds capacity among the UoA teachers to use technology for equitable learning opportunities through support and resources for 1 and 2 above.

Have something to share?

It’s often the good examples that get shared, but not everyone talks candidly about the failures of TEL. We can all learn so much more from the failed projects or those initiatives that challenge our thinking around inclusive design and equitable access/opportunities. Have you got a story to share? Why not tell us about your case of TEL. We particularly welcome the student voice and the cases where things may not have gone as planned.
