This paper presents best practices for instructional designers and faculty working together to develop face-to-face and online courses. It describes and explains the rationale for an approach that establishes new roles for faculty and instructional designers through the use of a nine-step model implemented by the leadership of a teaching and technology support center at a medical school. The primary theoretical background comes from change management theory as it relates to instructional and technology innovation, and is based on the work of D. P. Ely (1990, 1999), J. P. Kotter (1996), Ensminger et. al (2004), and E.M. Rogers (1995). These best practices for developing a partnership between faculty and instructional designers are presented in order to assist both faculty members and instructional designers to appropriately develop emerging relationships and realistic outcomes.
