Dr Yishay Mor has been announced as the winner of the second†TELEARC award for PhD excellence, which will be delivered on the occasion of the 2011 edition of the Alpine Rendez-vous.† The†Technology Enhanced Learning European Advanced Research Consortium†(TELEARC) has been created with the mission to keep on the legacy of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence.† Its key objectives are: to contribute to the shaping of the scientific evolution of technology enhanced learning, to strengthen the scientific collaborations between research teams and foster integration of European research teams in the field of technology enhanced learning, to promote the excellence of European research in the area of technology enhanced learning, and to raise awareness in the area toward the scientific community, policy-makers and the general public.

The†Alpine Rendez-vous†is an event, legacy of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence, now funded by STELLAR, the FP7 European Network of Excellence on Technology-Enhanced Learning.

Dr Mor completed his PhD in October, under the supervision of Professor Richard Noss at the London Knowledge Lab.† His thesis, entitled, "A Design Approach to Research in Technology Enhanced Mathematics Education" explores the prospect of a design science of technology enhanced mathematics education (TEME), on three levels: epistemological, methodological and pedagogical.† Its primary domain is the identification of scientific tools for design research in TEME.† The outputs of this enquiry are evaluated by a demonstrator study in the domain of secondary school mathematics.† The main outcome of this study is a methodological framework for design science of TEME which combines design narratives and design patterns into structured cycles of enquiry.† This framework is supported both theoretically and empirically.† Inter alia, it is used to derive a contribution towards a pedagogical pattern language of construction, communication and collaboration in TEME."
