Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A Mellon workshop created teams including faculty, librarians, instructional technologists, and students from nine educational institutions to incorporate technology into curricula. Instructional technologists and librarians from Mount Holyoke and the University of Massachusetts Amherst recount initial and subsequent collaborative efforts in infusing technology and information literacy into curricula. Their experiences illustrate differences and challenges of collaboration in small colleges and large universities. Regardless of size of institution, both experiences resulted in changes in the way these constituents across campus participate in teaching and learning. Former support staff roles of instructional technologist and librarian evolved into dynamic roles based on partnership.
