Abstract: This paper describes a model for sustaining a cycle of service, innovation, reflective practice, and knowledge generation and dissemination in a higher educational context. The goal of this paper is to recount how the relationship between an in-house technology support unit and the instructors it served evolved over time. Illustrative examples of practice and milestones of important developments, including innovative practices and research output, are used to show how this occurred. The purpose of this paper is to describe the elements of that relationship as they relate to beneficial educational practices and values, and the emergence of a sustained cycle of creativity, innovation, support, and knowledge growth that benefited both the local instructional context and the education technology community at large.
