      about TLRP
    
     

Origins

The origins of the Programme can be traced to the mid-1990s when educational research was heavily criticised for being small scale, irrelevant, inaccessible and of low quality.  Whether or not these criticisms were entirely justified, researchers faced major challenges in demonstrating the value of investment in this field.  Fortunately, thanks initially to the imagination and commitment of the Higher Education Funding Council for England, a new opportunity was created though TLRP.  

The total budget, including the final phase on technology enhanced learning, grew to some £43m.  This drew contributions from a wide range of UK government bodies. The first generic projects began empirical work in 2000 and work on technology enhanced learning will end in 2012.
