Abstract

In 2003, the University System of Georgia sponsored the Peru Summer Institute for Faculty Development. A fortuitous meeting between Peruvian and U.S. faculty led to a faculty exchange with the shared goals of expanding cultural horizons, enhancing faculty through improved teaching and collaboration, and preparing students for the increasingly global reach of information technology. The experiences of this faculty exchange provide a framework for future collaboration between Peru's information technology professionals and their colleagues in the United States. But perhaps more importantly, faculty and students discovered a synergy between designing information technology systems and the cultural contexts under which such systems operate.
