The summary themes that I took from the discourse were:
(1) 'eLearning developers' are also 'educational developers' by default - these are not mutually exclusive roles and it adds little to the debate by imposing artificial demarcation lines;
(2) technology-enhaced learning tools must be driven by the value-added they bring to the teaching and learning experience e.g. facilitating geographically distributed students working on a group project. Pedagogy first - technology second!
(3) Ireland's competitive advantage is that we have a relativeley small educational developerment community. However, we should be more pro-active in sharing stories and strategies to support common goals - this can be facilitatied by technologies such as the ILTA web site.
