TEL edvisor SIG « ASCILITE | Learning and Teaching in an Online Environment | Scoop.it
In tertiary education, there is a wide range of highly skilled and knowledgeable people that provide advice, support and leadership about all facets of technology enhanced learning (TEL).

We are known as educational designers, developers and consultants, learning technologists, and academic developers, among other things. Collectively, we are TELedvisors.

We consider TEL to include all aspects of teaching and learning practice because in the 21st century, there is little that isn’t in some way inextricably intertwined with technology (cf. Selwyn 2017).
