    Abstract

    This paper discusses recent developments in technology enhanced learning (TEL) across the UK higher education (HE) sector and considers the extent to which innovative practices have been able to flourish. In the context of an increasingly competitive marketplace for student recruitment, we explore the tension that HE institutions are now facing between establishing consistency in course provision as away of satisfying student expectations, whilst at the same time encouraging academic staff to experiment and innovate with learning technologies, with the accompanying risks that this may present to the reception of learning methods.
