The research presented in this paper reports on making change happen and the challenge of tuming educators into change agents. The project is being carried out at the University of Applied Sciences & Arts Wester Switzerland, where there are over 20'000 students. lt is an action research project related to the inclusion of technology in the higher education classroom to add value to course design and delivery, and preparing educators for the next generation classroom. Following a phase of exploratory research, a series of four workshops have been developed and are currently being delivered across the 28 schools in the University. This project is the implementation of a programme which hopes to make such change becomes a reality and spread throughout the instituts. A description of the programme, its implementation and feedback from those involved provides the basis for discussion and suggestions are made for enabling change in the higher education arena.
