Best Technology Practices in Higher Education

Edited by Les Lloyd

"This book distills the strategic lessons of IT of the past decade and presents them in a manner useful to everyone from senior administrators to technical staff. It will make the ‘hard decisions’ about IT investments easier for everyone. A fine job of selection and editing." —Charles Edmondson, President, Alfred University

A handful of progressive teachers and administrators are integrating technology in new and creative ways at their colleges and universities, raising the bar for all schools. In his latest book, editor Les Lloyd (Teaching with Technology) has sought out the most innovative and practical examples in a range of key application areas, bringing together more than 30 technology leaders to share their success stories. The book’s 18 chapters include firsthand accounts of school technology projects that have transformed classrooms, services, and administrative operations. The four major sections are “Best Practices in Teaching and Course Delivery,” “Best Practices in Administrative Operations,” “Technical or Integrative Best Practices,” and "Future Best Practices."

Best Technology Practices in Higher Education is an invaluable resource for technology and information staff, and for provosts and presidents who need to gauge how their schools stack up and to challenge staff to embrace the best that new technology has to offer.

"This book is a must for anyone in academia interested in how technology impacts institutional performance. It is a truly useful tool for both strategic thinking and daily decision-making." —Matt Certo, President & CEO, WebSolvers, Inc.

"Best Technology Practices in Higher Education, authored by national and international experts in the field, provides information on the most important technology issues in higher education. The result is a clear, practical guide that can be of great use to higher education administrators." —Anne B. Kerr, Ph.D., President, Florida Southern College
