The Legacy and the Future of Research Networks in Technology-Enhanced Learning

These are the slides of my presentation at the Orphée Alpine Rendevous in Font Romeu on February 1, 2017. I was asked to participate in the meeting as an European expert in the field of technology enhanced learning. The participants worked on grand challenges in TEL the other days. In his presentation, Mike Sharples put the grand challenges in an European and international context. He presented a lot of reports, mainly from US or UK institutions about the challenges in TEL. Fridolin Wild, an expert in the fabrication of grand challenges from the STELLAR days reflected on the challenges. His presentation was about our joint WEKIT project on augmented reality and wearable technology industrial training. The WEKIT project has reached its second year and we are starting to develop our technology platform to support technology developers and training providers in AR and WELL (wearable enhanced learning).
After the presentations we had two panels. The first was to give feedback on the grand challenges and the second was to explore future funding opportunities. Here is a challenge, too, since the according EU unit has announced that there will be no TEL specific H2020 call in 2017.
