    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review


    In any university-wide technology related implementation key stakeholders are required to provide support. This paper describes this important role with one set of key stakeholders:the university Blended Learning Advisors (BLAs) and Educational Designers (EDs) and presents data collected from interviews with 11 BLAs and EDs across a large university-wide implementation with over 45,000 students and 5000 staff members. Data was coded for emerging themes and is presented with results suggesting that the BLAs and EDs received sufficient training throughout the implementation and this then allowed them to work confidently and successfully with academics across the four academic groups to create a successful environment for the implementation. The BLAs and EDs played an important part with the academics implementing the platform into their teaching.
