IFIP TC3 has recently engaged with doctoral researchers in a successful and first online doctoral consortium. The event was held over a period of two days, on 18th and 19th May 2023. Sixteen doctoral researchers from five continents were involved in sharing their research work with experts from across IFIP TC3. The doctoral researchers included two from Kenya, one from Peru, three from India, three from France, three from Germany, three from the United Kingdom and one from Australia.

Research into technology supported learning
needs more “pedagogical provenance”


Keith Turvey – Principal Lecturer, University of Brighton, School of Education.

Norbert Pachler - Professor of Education and Pro-Vice-Provost: Digital Education, UCL.


In a recent article in The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/teachers-have-been-let-down-by-a-decade-of-inaction-on-digital-technologies-142938 ) Dr Keith Turvey and Professor Norbert Pachler challenged both policy makers and researchers to reflect on how effective the last decade of policy and research into technology supported learning had been in enabling the education sector to sustain teaching and learning throughout the coronavirus pandemic. They argue that:

“Teachers need to be supported by policy and research to help them develop expert knowledge on the use of digital technologies. Failure to do so may simply mean re-learning the same lessons over and over again. To help teachers prepare for the unknown challenges ahead we must build on the lessons of the past.”

The article builds on a recent review they carried out into technology supported learning and introduces the idea of “pedagogical provenance” as an important concept for designing research that can increase the potential usefulness of evidence about educational technologies to practitioners. Research methods that develop pedagogical provenance value and capture teachers’ stories of how methods of teaching using digital technologies came to be used, including the specific purposes and contexts in which they have been developed. Their research review paper is available at the following link: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compedu.2019.103736
