Technology Enhanced Learning Group (TELG) The E-learning Group work with the Technology-Enhanced Learning Group (TELG) – a forum for discussing matters related to the intersection between technology and learning and teaching. TELG report to the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Committee and meet four times a year. An academic member of staff represents each Institute. Please contact your Institute representative or the E-learning Group if you would like to raise a matter for discussion.
