UK Technology Education at the Institute of Educational Technology (IET)

Here is what the UK site talks about with reference to Technology eudcation. Look at this website to see what are counter parts are doing with technology education in the UK.

The Institute of Educational Technology (IET) at the Open University provides advice on the use of modern technologies to support effective learning, particularly distance learning and e-learning, in higher education. We are committed to developing expertise in teaching and learning and to applying it, particularly to the benefit of the Open University. As you will see from the list of our research and development activities, we work collaboratively with leading scholars internationally and in the UK.

In addition to studying, evaluating and influencing OU practices, we also carry out basic research into learning and e-learning, and applied research into the use of new technologies. Additionally the Institute works in the field of professional development in HE and has a strong and successful record of postgraduate teaching.
