Dejan Ljubojević - The final frontier - Technology-use Enhanced Reflection  


Following from Ehler's insight that TEL functions as magnifying glass on teaching practice, this presentation focuses on the unsung effect of TEL use on teaching, and the affordances the use of TEL provides for reflective praxis. Use of TEL in teacher education aids in exposing deficits in pedagogical planning or teaching/learning organization, effecting the improvements in Quality Literacy. Dejan is a lecturer at the Kingston University in London. Dejan's research in Technology Enhanced Learning has contributed to prominent UK research programmes. His present focus is in applying research to practice, exemplified in a software tool, that Dejan developed, for systematic development and refinement of curriculum design methods, processes and products.
