Description & Coverage
Description:

Institutions of higher education are at the forefront of the technological interface with life and society. Such technological innovations within university research centers, university library resource developments, and new tools available for teaching and learning, are nurturing in new educational approaches and debates concerning the appropriate use of new technologies.

Cases on Digital Technologies in Higher Education: Issues and Challenges provides a collection of practical case studies exploring the application of digital technologies in higher education along with strategies to address new challenges facing educational institutions in the 21st century. This book establishes a selective synthesis of research on technology to help guide individuals within institutions of higher education faced with technological change. Focusing greatly on engineering education, it addresses technological concerns in order to find solutions that will help maximize the utility of new digital technologies and minimize their adverse effects in a variety of learning environments.
