Developments in Collaborative e-Learning Models for a New Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Training in e-Learning in Greenwich and Oxford
Abstract: In 2003-04, The Universities of Greenwich and Oxford agreed collaboratively to develop a new Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Training in e-Learning (CeTTeL). Led by the University of Greenwich, the bid was supported by Oxford University Learning Technologies Group and Educational Studies Department. Joint discussions enabled iterative design for new models of e-practitioner research, e-learning pedagogy and dissemination. Greenwich focused on scholarship in learning and teaching and practitioner research. Oxford focused on the interactivity between pedagogy, research, and technological development. The resulting models specified a new dialogue between scholarship, research, practitioner-focused student-centred pedagogy and technological advancement, initiating a process for overcoming a key national issue: UK learning technologies research and development rarely connects with teacher-practitioner technology usage. This paper outlines joint work in progress on the emerging models.
