    Abstract

    Technology is increasingly being used to underpin business processes across teaching and
    learning, research, knowledge exchange and business support activities in both HE and FE.
    The introduction of technology has a significant impact on the working practices of staff,
    often requiring them to work in a radically different way. Change in any situation can be
    unsettling and problematic and, where not effectively managed, can lead to poor service or
    functionality and disenfranchised staff. These issues can have a direct impact on institutional
    effectiveness, reputation and the resulting student experience. The Work-with-IT project,
    based at the University of Strathclyde, sought to examine changes to working practices
    across HE and FE, the impact on staff roles and relationships and the new skills sets that
    are required to meet these changes.
