Distance Collaboration and Technology Integration between Two Institutions.
Little-Reynolds, Laura; Takacs, James
The Collaborative Technology Integration (CTI) project consisted of workshops that involved collaboration efforts between faculty members from Mary Washington College (Virginia) and graduate students in instructional technology from West Virginia University. The project paired up individuals from the two schools to work together on the integration of technology into the curriculum. Partners relied on e-mail, file transfer protocol, faxes, and the telephone to share ideas, works in progress, and ideas for future work. The case studies described in this paper demonstrate two extreme examples that comprise the entire CTI project. In one case, the instructional technologist and the content area specialist had little contact over the time period, while the other project involved a team that was in almost daily contact with each other. Varying degrees of commitment to the project were observed in both cases; the degree of commitment was related to the clarity of the vision for the project. Each project, in spite of different degrees of communication, met the goal of technology integration into the target course, demonstrating that modern communications technology enables instructors to tap into the knowledge of experts at different locations.
