This chapter describes the experiences of four projects under the Higher Educa-tion Academy (HEA) funded e-learning pathfinder initiative. The projects focused on institutional strategic change and in particular on embedding e-learning. Each adopted different approaches, tailored to their own specific institutional contexts. However the projects also worked at a cluster level, which enabled them to draw on commonalities and differences. Working within the cluster also enabled them to adopt a reflective approach to their projects and to consider the implications of their findings for future strategic change within their institutions.
