If I may extend the conversation to technology in general, I can provide one example that is working. At Saint Michael's College in Vermont we have a gifted information technology (IT) staff. Because the faculty respond rapidly to other faculty, the IT department patiently recruits mentors from among the faculty. I say patiently because the IT staff know the information better than the faculty. However, seeing a faculty member master a new technology gives hope and inspiration to others. So each summer when our students are off campus we have a week long workshop for around ten faculty members. The workshop is run by a small team of IT professionals, two faculty mentors, and some guest speakers. It works; it fills each year; there are now faculty mentors from a range of departments around our campus and the effect on the classroom use of technology is dramatic.Dmccabe 02:09, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
