The role of technology in the sphere of education has increased exponentially over the last two decades. As computers, the internet, and mobile technologies have come to assume a central and even ubiquitous role in our day-to-day lives, so too have they become increasingly important elements of the way in which we teach and learn, both within and outside of institutional educational settings.
The Western Network for Digital Education and Research (WNDER) is comprised of researchers, staff, graduate students, and librarians at Western University who seek to better understand the impacts of new technologies upon education. Our research encompasses all forms of educational technology, within the classroom and in online settings. We are interested in exploring new ways to deliver education to increasingly diverse communities of learners and in measuring the impact and outcomes of such technologies. Through eLearning, we seek to nurture innovation in education and to evaluate the efficacy and influence of instructional technology.
Membership in this group is free and open to all faculty, staff, and graduate students at Western University.
WNDER is delighted to acknowledge the support of the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, who have generously agreed to host this web site.
