Technology Integration in Higher Education

Book Description

As technology expands and becomes more powerful and pervasive, there is growing discussion of the innovative ways that technology can be used. While it is obviously important to consider the technical aspects of any new technology, there is a critical need for more discussion related to the social and organizational aspects of technology in higher education.Technology Integration in Higher Education: Social and Organizational Aspects provides a sound overview of the ways that technology influences the human and organizational aspects of higher education. Aimed at researchers and professionals working in higher education, this text explores how  technology is changing the relationship between faculty and students, higher education experience, and the role of colleges and universities within society as a whole.
