  • 2. Bristol Centre for Research in Lifelong Learning andEducation (BRILLE) Home page: BRILLE conducts theoretical through to applied research revolving aroundthree distinctive yet complementary research themes Designing for Digital Learners (D4DL) – John Cook Investigating the application of Technology Enhanced Learning to mediate,augment, support and transform learning Researching Children and Young People – Penelope Harnett Focussing on the lived experiences of children and young people andanalyses different policy and social contexts which impact on their lives Post-compulsory education, social justice and the student experience – RichardWaller Working in areas of further, higher and work-based education. It alsoinvestigates issues of education and social justice and the experience ofstudents across all phases and sites of education
  • 3. Designing for Digital Learners (D4DL) Home page: Designing for Digital Learners or D4DL is an open Special Interest Group (SIG)that investigates the application of Technology Enhanced Learning or TEL ( devices and social media) to mediate, augment, support and/ortransform learning. The nature of learning is being enhanced and mediated by the likes of mobiledevices and the networks and media to which they connect people. Consequently, there is a need to re-examine approaches to the design of, andresearch into, learning experiences that incorporate TEL within learningcontexts. Interdisciplinary research focus (from theoretical all the way throughto applied). This research theme will follow an ‘educational design research’methodological approach; this is an approach that tends to have interventionistcharacteristics, is process oriented and contributes to theory building.
  • 4. Designing for Digital Learners (D4DL) D4DL also takes a pedagogically driven approach to investigating learning,mediated by digital media, across a variety of contexts (e.g. FE, HE, schools,work-based, informal). Digital media can include such innovations as augmented reality, locationbased services and the affordances of mobile devices and social media ingeneral. We are open to those thinking about research, to those with a clear agenda fora Masters, EdD or Doctoral study, or if you have finished one of these and arethinking ‘what next’, or if you are an established researchers, etc See Designing for Informal and Lifelong Learning (DILL) at for an overview of myprevious work in this area
