ABSTRACT
In this paper we will reflect upon some of the experiences that the author had whilst supporting the embedding of Information Technology (I.T.) into a U.K. mathematics department’s undergraduate teaching. The paper includes some examples of the kinds of problems that can occur, and some potential solutions to these problems, in particular with the regards to issues on the expectations of staff and the effects of the discipline’s and the department’s own culture.
