Sustaining a Virtual Support Organization: The Learning Technologies Partnership--A Model for the New Millennium.
Hoffman, Barbara; Austin, James; Williams, Karen
To meet the ever growing demand to integrate information technology into all aspects of university life, the University of Arizona has been exploring new support models. One of the most successful strategies for improving the instructional environment is found in the Learning Technologies Partnership. Created in 1995 to improve support and expand development opportunities for teaching faculty, the functional links between diverse service units--computer center, library, teaching center, video services, a new media research center, and the extended university--now support a "virtual organization." The impact of this virtual organization is felt across the curriculum. In its fifth year, the Partnership is preparing to step beyond "doing" to help lead the UA into the next millennium. (Author)
