Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) is a broad term to refer to how technology, its applications, and affordances are used for teaching and learning.  Blended, flipped, MOOCs are a few key approaches to how teaching and learning is done with the use of technology.   The appropriate and effective use of technology for teaching and learning has become important in situations where face-to-face learning is minimised or not possible. 

 In various contexts across universities, teachers and students have made creative use of TEL tools and platforms to engage in learning.  This resource is curates information that might be of relevance for the NUS community.   

 If you have or know of anyone with good resources to share, we would be pleased to feature them.  Please write to us at

Is There Any Support in Exploring TEL?

NUS-wide, there are at least two avenues for us start a TEL-related project or to look into certain aspects of TEL. They are: 

Learning Innovation Fund – Technology (LIFT) 
Teaching Enhancement Grants (TEG)
