This paper is a reflection upon the genesis of a conceptual model for ‘intelligent deployment’ of technologies to enhance students’ learning. It developed from a creative epiphany stimulated by a ‘model’ used to support the teaching of a range of genres of writing to school children, which focussed on the importance of teaching about alignment of the form of writing for its particular purpose and audience. Explanation is given of how this has been elaborated and refined as a dialogic tool for planning for ‘intelligent deployment of technologies’ in one of the UK's Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning. The SOLSTICE Centre has a particular focus on learning technologies. The SOLSTICE ‘intelligence informed dialogue’ concept, which is derived from the above is shared and exemplified through the notion of 'New Academic Teamwork' grounded in trans-disciplinary, multi-professional pedagogic design approaches. The paper concludes with insights into how the SOLSTICE ‘Purpose, Audience and Form’ model has been used to creatively stimulate discussion and definition of trans-disciplinary research with potential to engage multiple international partners.
