Forging productive partnerships between learning, teaching, library and IT

Despite the hype around digital learning, the reality is that universities are often criticized for their slow response to the technological and societal changes occurring around them (Barber et al., 2013; Ernst and Young, 2012). With increasingly constrained budgets and uncertainty, IT departments and learning teaching experts need to work collaboratively and productively to progress our learning and teaching agendas. This requires cultural change, leadership and higher levels of engagement and partnership. This panel discussion will bring together leaders in IT and learning and teaching and library to discuss key elements that need to be addressed to transform our partnership in ways that will add significant value to 21st Century university education.
