Emerging learning technologies (ELTs) have become a core facet of university life, but their role in teaching and learning is contested, and generally, not wellunderstood. By analyzing the perceptions of both academics and students towards ELTs, this paper aims to expand understanding of the role of ELTs in teaching and learning in one school in a research intensive university. Online surveys completed by both academics and students and smaller focus groups identified diverse perspectives on the uses of ELTs in the processes of learning in higher education. These results inform a strategic planning process at the school level to implement an Emerging Learning Technologies Preparedness Plan. Moreover, this discourse on the role of, costs and opportunities that ELTs afford is significant and timely to look at how to take a whole-of-school approach; and identify and evaluate pedagogical principles that foster active teaching and learning practices.
