  9. 9. Stage 4 (Knowledge Construction, Collaboration) <ul><li>“ We see clusters of course development here, too. Some of this is can be the support services in place in the department, and some of it can be explained by the &quot;Diffusion of Innovations&quot; work by Everett Rogers.Rogers says that there are five interrelated attributes that accompany the diffusion of technology: its relative advantage when compared with other methods; its compatibility with the existing culture; its complexity of use; if it can be experienced in a limited way; and there is the ability to observe how others have used it. The clustering of faculty in one department or college speaks to the latter attribute. Part of the strategy we employ to enhance this effect is a series of &quot;Showcases&quot; at which faculty speak to faculty about their experiences.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Catherine G </li></ul>
