Integrating Information, Education and Technology Services.
O'Brien, Linda; Sidorko, Peter
The higher education environment is undergoing significant change as it enters a global knowledge-based economy. Technology now enables students to undertake studies that are time and place independent. To thrive in a networked learner environment, new strategic relationships must be created between library and information professionals, information and education technologists, trainers and staff developers, instructional designers and media designers and producers. The University of Newcastle sought strategic advantage through integrating its information, education and technology services in early 1997. This paper explores the rationale for the formation of the division and the strengths and weaknesses of this approach as highlighted through a recent external review. Contains 11 endnotes.
