    For decades, scholarship on factors affecting curriculum implementation has pointed to the importance of involving teachers, to varying degrees, in shaping the learning scenarios in their own classrooms (Ben-Peretz, 1990). At the same time, recent technological developments have changed the nature of teacher design work. Today, teachers design, re-design, and tailor not only analogue, but also Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) materials and activities. Typical teacher design work is near-to-practice, involving critical reflection on and redesign of one’s personal practice (Raval, McKenney, & Pieters, 2010); evidence-based customization (Gerard, Spitulnik, & Linn, 2010); and/or team design within one organization (Voogt, Almekinders, van den Akker, & Moonen, 2005).
