Abstract

This chapter focuses on national and institutional initiatives in UK higher education (HE) to support and embed technology enhanced learning, and in particular with regard to the development in undergraduate students of research-oriented capabilities. The term “research-led” is widely used in the HE sector to describe universities that demonstrate a high capacity for good quality research whilst claiming that their research informs and enhances their teaching. The approaches described are based on the premise that developments should be led by clear pedagogical objectives coupled with the opportunities afforded to the curriculum by the technologies.
