Large research networks naturally form complex communities with overlapping but not identical expertise. To map the distribution of professional competence in field of ‘technology-enhanced learning’, the lexical semantics expressed in research articles published in a representative, large-scale conference (ED-MEDIA) can be investi-gated and changes in the topics covered can be tracked over time. Within this contribution, the two years 2000 and 2008 are used to con-trast the change in meaning structure. In both cases, first a quantita-tive investigation is applied, directly followed by a two-fold qualitative analysis. Results indicate that the field has opened up to new areas, thus diversifying research; at the same time, certain terminology dis-appears as interests shift and research is finalised for some of the un-derlying problems.
