A Design Approach to Research in Technology Enhanced Mathematics Education
This thesis explores the prospect of a design science of technology enhanced mathematics education (TEME), on three levels: epistemological, methodological and pedagogical. Its primary domain is the identification of scientific tools for design research in TEME. The outputs of this enquiry are evaluated by a demonstrator study in the domain of secondary school mathematics.
A review of existing literature establishes a need for a design perspective in TEME research, but at the same time suggests
Learning to work and working to learn in 2025

Transferring Kaleidoscope members' activities research into economic outcomes
The importance of research undertaken within academic and research organisations is widely recognized by governments, industries and diverse stakeholders. Indeed, the contribution of higher education in the generation of new ideas and knowledge, and as an economic driver, has probably never been as important.
