The aim of this paper is to describe the process and results of capturing, tracing, and visualizing the spread and evolution of Technology enhanced instructional strategies within medical and graduate education. The paper shows the resulting network of influences in relation to the adoption of these strategies across individuals and communities within Georgetown University as well as beyond its organizational boundaries. The paper concludes by proposing that a knowledge exchange framework may serve as an alternative to more traditional evaluation methods and return on investment models used in higher education.
