Pressure on IT to do more with less, combined with increasing faculty demands and greater complexity of projects, is creating a divide between IT and faculty, which diminishes the effectiveness and creativeness of using technology in teaching and learning. This session will offer perspectives from two universities on ways to narrow the gap through building strategic campus and faculty alliances.
