HIP Taxonomy: Technology Enhanced Learning

Technology Enhanced Learning

Minimum Definition of Practice

Instructional practices that leverage digital technologies to enhance teaching and learning. (Digital technology is any electronic tool, system, device or resource that facilitates learning and improves student performance. Examples include, but are not limited to, social media, online games, multimedia, productivity applications, cloud computing, interoperable systems, and mobile devices. Digital technologies can be used to increase engagement, encourage collaboration, deliver support, and increase awareness and understanding.)


The System recognizes that a powerful teaching tool that can be used throughout all of the High Impact strategies listed is an ePortfolio. As such, particular attention to the use of ePortfolios was provided in two webinars in fall 2015.
The new System contract with D2L will make available an ePortfolio platform at no additional cost to TBR institutions.
