Co-creation is a term encompassing various forms of active stakeholder 
engagement and collaboration aiming at (i) innovation and research 
results that are more relevant and responsive to society, (ii) wider and 
more efficient adoption of research and innovation, (iii) integration of 
society in innovation, and (iv) stronger ties of innovation with the 
individual end user/consumer. A multitude of approaches has emerged to 
support this aim including co-design, co-production, participatory 
design, Design-based Research, Research-based Design, Living Labs and 
DevOps, which we subsume under the term co-creation All of them have a 
strong ethos of equally valuing and involving the experience, expertise 
and creativity of all members of a user community and wider society 
(Sanders & Stappers, 2008). Co-creation is also an important means to 
adhere to the EU’s Responsible Research and Innovation agenda and part 
of the ‘Science with and for the Society’ objective (Horizon 2020, 2018).
Within the TEL domain, co-creation plays a particularly important role 
as design and development move from relatively well understood 
school-based or formal learning contexts into less structured and less 
well understood areas such as informal learning, workplace learning, and 
continuing professional development. Crucially, the use, effectiveness, 
and impact of these co-creation approaches in the TEL community needs to 
be better understood, allowing for the implementation of replicable 
studies as well as valid research insights meeting the standards of the 
TEL community at the same time.
Some key questions have still not been sufficiently addressed:
-          What co-creation approaches are used in the TEL community?
-          What are the issues facing co-creation in TEL?
-          What is the impact of using co-creation in TEL?
-          How to scale up co-creation activities in TEL?
These simple questions tap into some foundational issues regarding 
co-creation in Technology Enhanced Learning. The approaches for 
integrating co-creation in TEL address interesting topics like 
taxonomies of co-creative approaches, TEL workflow support and, 
specifically, interfacing existing pipelines of TEL (AGILE development, 
Problem Based Learning, etc.) with the principles and practicalities of 
co-creation. The issues challenging co-creative TEL mainly focus on 
maintaining the open ended volatile creativity of co-creation, while at 
the same time adhering to definitive, well-structured pedagogical, 
technological and academic good practices. The impactof co-creative TEL, 
while self-evident at the high level of discourse, touches into 
challenging topics like removing cross-disciplinary barriers, 
integrating diverse best practices and transforming simple topical 
collaboration into a true impact multiplier. As well, we invite critical 
reflectionson co-creation addressing restrictive issues and barriers 
such as the need for extensive research resources, compromises between 
stakeholders or adoption of conservative technologies, for example, as 
well as strategies to cope with them. Finally, the activities that scale 
upco-creative TEL, provide the most fertile, but also challenging, 
ground for tapping into the methodological strengths of co-creation as a 
concept and method. Crowdsourcing, open code and design, emergent ad-hoc 
creative commons, all are tools in the co-creative arsenal that need to 
be utilized appropriately so as to allow for the graceful and swift 
growth of all TEL aspects, from content creation all the way to 
dissemination and wider accessibility. Given this outline the following 
Topics of Interest for submissions in this Special Issue emerged.

*Topics of Interest*
Submissions are invited addressing any of the topics listed below. 
Submissions should clearly relate their topic to the use of co-creation 
in Technology Enhanced Learning.
• Co-creation case study in a particular domain and a particular design 
• Co-creation workflows
• Co-creation tools, systems, functionalities
• Co-creation in digital educational content development
• Co-creation approaches - commonalities and differences
• Workflows for digital content co-creation
• Engaging different types of stakeholders
• Activities used in co-creation approaches
• Co-creation as part of the design and development process
• Recruitment and motivation of participants and related organizations
• Managing expectations
• Prioritisation/managing of feedback diversity in co-creation
• Ethical issues around co-creation
• Impact of using co-creation (individual and/or institutional)
• Educational impact of co-designing and co-creating TEL resources
• Analysing data gathered through co-creation activities
• Evaluation of co-creation approaches
• Institutional perspective on co-creation
• Sustainability and scalability of co-creation
