Librarians excel at teaching patrons how to use resources for their research and learning needs. Librarians can introduce these skills into faculty technology training since faculty research needs often intersect with their technology interest, be it mobile devices, technology-enhanced teaching strategies, or tools that support their research. The purpose of this paper is to explore a framework for collaboration in technology training through the lens of a “faculty learning community” and a “diffusion of innovation theory.” This will be examined through a case study of the author’s library, where a multi-year intentional and systematic collaboration with instructional design and Information Technology (IT) staff led to the library taking on a leadership role in technology training at its institution.
