TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING (TEL) IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Ms. Achala V. Bhor

“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”

These words by John Dewey stress upon the need for continuous evolution of the content and tools used in the teaching learning process. Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is a term that refers to the application of technology to improve the teaching and learning experience. Although it can be used to describe both analog and digital technologies, of late, TEL is used more often to describe the use of digital technology in the form of different types of educational software. The growing need to maximize access to higher education and situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic have underlined the critical need for TEL and also provided a thrust to its widespread adoption. The increase in prevalence of education applications, software for teachers, and e-learning services point towards the fact that technology is not just an additional resource but a critical tool for improving the process and outcomes of teaching and learning. Further, the digital format of TEL offers the scope for sustaining and improving the teaching learning process based on the evolving educational needs.
