The instructional teams of MTEL courses are international, well-known and established researchers and scholars within the field of online and distance learning (ODL) and technology enhanced learning (TEL). They are members of faculties at prominent institutions of higher education and distance learning, as well as of professional organisations of ODL around the world. In addition, most instructors serve on editorial and advisory boards of international scholarly journals within the fields of educational technology, open educational resources, and ODL.

In addition to its distinguished staff, the MTEL programme makes use of mentors, who are research associates at the University of Oldenburg, and provide teaching and learning support within each MTEL course. The programme further enhances the quality of its courses by incorporating the use of visiting experts – well-known ODL and TEL experts in the field – who interact and hold dialogue with you in online discussion forums.

Our instructional teams are/have:

  • International, with instructors from UK, Germany, Canada, Switzerland. Turkey, South Africa, and USA;
  • Extensive experience in technology enhanced learning;
  • Affiliated with several online and distance learning (ODL) associations and editorial boards;
  • Extensive teaching, administrative, and management experience in many academic and institutions and corporate environments both in ODL and in traditional environments;
  • Broad experience as consultants and scholars in the areas of ODL and TEL;
  • Academic backgrounds include instructional technology, instructional design, education, psychology and other related fields.

Instructors are also members of the internationally networked Center for Open Education Research.
