Moving Beyond the Org Chart: Library and IT Collaboration for Course Design and Support

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


This ECAR research bulletin describes a Dartmouth College pilot project to provide faculty with a gateway to course design and delivery services. The Team Response for Instructional Planning (TRIP) project addresses the need for these integrated services. The bulletin is an early dispatch from the field, rather than a thorough evaluation of a completed project.The authors write as instigators and experimenters, working with a core group of colleagues on the messy business of developing new models for service and collaboration. The conclusions are designed to generate discussion and debate rather than to offer a set of validated best practices.
