MUSTEL: Technology Enhanced Learning in Museums (completed)

About the project

MUSTEL: Museums and Technology Enhanced Learning draws on the interdisciplinary experience of a group of museum researchers to explore a set of core concerns within technology-enhanced learning, includingtheoretical approaches to understanding learning activities in museum settings, and lessons learned from the deployment of new technologies in such settings. The MUSTEL project was established by seed grants within the frame of the EU Network of Excellence Kaleidoscope.


The objective of the MUSTEL project is to integrate Kaleidoscope and other international research on technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in museums, to analyse existing installations and best practice, and to recommend design principles grounded in a common theoretical perspective on learning that will be useful for future TEL research in museums.


The principal Kaleidoscope members of MUSTEL are:
- Liam Bannon, Interaction Design Centre, University of Limerick
- Palmyre Pierroux, InterMedia, University of Oslo
- Victor Kaptelinin, Umeå University
- Kevin Walker, London Knowledge Lab, University of London, UK

Associated Kaleidoscope members:
- Dagny Stuedahl, Media and Communication, University of Oslo
- Tony Hall, National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG)
