STELLAR Network of Excellence

Unifying diverse communities within European TEL Research

STELLAR represents the effort of the leading institutions and projects in European Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) to unify our diverse community.

This Network of Excellence is motivated by the need for European research on TEL to build upon, synergize and extend the valuable work we have started by significantly building capacity in TEL research within Europe, which is required to allow the European Union to achieve its goals via the Bologna Agreement and the execution of the Lisbon Agenda. The European TEL agenda has been set for the last 4 years by the Kaleidoscope network with a huge strength in pedagogy and scientific excellence, and the Prolearn network with a complimentary strength in technical and professional excellence. Integrating this excellence and moving on to the higher strategic formation of policy based in leading research is the key challenge for the next stage.

STELLAR moved beyond the earlier networks by setting a new and critical foresight agenda for Technology Enhanced Learning. The Network was executed via a series of integration instruments designed to increase the research capacity of European TEL at all levels.

STELLAR's instruments acted upon the backbone of an interlocking set of 3 Grand Research Challenge actions, themed as Connecting People, Orchestration and Context.
