In this discussion paper we propose a framework for embedding the scholarship of technology enhanced learning (SOTEL) within an educational design research (EDR) methodology. SOTEL updates Boyer’s scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) model to incorporate a critical integration of learning technologies and teaching praxis, informed by new learning theories. The paper explores this framework redefining SOTL as an iterative four-stage process that embeds the use of social networks to enable collaboration and enhance the dissemination and sharing of technology enhanced research and practice. The framework is illustrated in the design and the development of a SOTEL research cluster network hub.
