TELT was established by the University of Twente in January 2016. We are a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in different themes that involve education and ICT. We work closely together with the departments of CES-CELT and LISA.
Our mission is to improve the teaching practices of our lecturers with the use of new technologies for teaching and learning. Our main activities include:
- building expertise around emerging technologies
- experimenting with new technologies by facilitating innovative pilots
- assisting the organization in implementing solutions that have proven effective
- sharing our expertise and the results of the projects that we are involved in
An important challenge for the TELT team lies within separating the hype of expectations from the actual advancements of emerging technology. This pattern, that is followed by almost all new technologies, is called the hype cycle. It was first described by the technology research company Gartner, as illustrated below.
