TIDE is very active contributing to Learning Technologies research community initiatives. For example, the Head of Group is Vice-President of the European Association of Technology-Enhanced Learning, member of the Steering Committee of the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning, Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, and Chair of the IEEE ICICLE Learning Technologies Data Standards SIG.


From time to time, TIDE hosts community activities and research visitors, some examples:

  • FutureLearn Academic Network meeting
  • Tina Papathoma (OUUK, 2017), Peter Sloep (OUNL, 2016), Shirley Agostinho (U. Wollongong, 2016), Lori Lockyer (UTS, 2016), Roberto Martínez-Maldonado (UTS, 2016), Abelardo Pardo (U. Sydney 2016), Seiji Isotani (U. São Paulo, 2015), Jaime Caicedo (U. Cauca, 2015), Jhon Jairo Ibarra Samboni (U. Cauca, 2015), Francisco O. Martínez Pabón (U. Cauca, 2014), Valerie Emin (Lyon, 2011), Alejandra Martínez-Monés (UVa, 2010), etc.


TIDE members participate regularly in conference program committees and serve as peer reviewers for journals in the field. They are also active co-editing special issues in journals and co-organizing workshops held in conjunction with international conferences, some examples include:
