The Department of Technology Enhanced Learning (DTEL) develops and evaluates innovative approaches to digital enabled teaching, learning and assessment, which align with the distinctive Surrey curriculum and are informed by educational research. We support teams in their design of contemporary, challenging, inclusive curricular and co-curricular activities. We encourage the use of digital resources to enrich learning and develop digital literacies.

The drive for projects can come from a variety of sources such as staff and student proposals, inter-disciplinary and inter-Faculty activity, and funding body supported projects. An evidence led and project based approach helps to ensure that development and research have clear aims, scope and timelines. We take a design led, collaborative approach and actively promote and support work with students as partners.

Project theme and examples

Examples of previous and ongoing collaborations include: providing resources to support independent learning, designing and delivering online courses, approaches to online assessment and feedback and integrating active learning including simulations.

Examples of recent and current projects:

DTEL can offer support and consultation through all of the stages of a project. We particularly support a design approach to focus on the different elements that need to be considered and related, particularly the challenge/s, design and the success criteria against which the project will be evaluated.
