Delegates 16 European Universities met in KMi today to kick off the STELLAR Network of Excellence in Technology Enhanced learning, the effort of the leading institutions and projects in EU TEL to unify our diverse community. The work of STELLAR will focus on the Grand Challenge for TEL, via a series of capacity building instruments and events.
The STELLAR Network of Excellence is motivated by the need for European research on TEL to build upon, synergize and extend the valuable work by significantly building capacity in TEL research within Europe, required to allow the European Union to achieve its goals via the Bologna Agreement and the execution of the Lisbon Agenda. STELLAR will move beyond the earlier networks by setting a new and critical foresight agenda for Technology Enhanced Learning. The Network will be executed via a series of integration instruments designed to increase the research capacity of European TEL at all levels.
