The use of technology for teaching continues to escalate on college and university campuses. However, the academy is still struggling with how best to plan and manage this activity.

Managing Technology in Higher Education offers faculty and senior academic administrators a wealth of practical recommendations for integrating communications technologies within colleges and universities. The authors provide recommendations on leadership, strategic planning, organizational structures, the governance of technology, quality assurance methods, training of instructors and administrators, and the management of resources in the context of organizational culture, barriers to change, and roles for government.

Based on examination of current practices in technology integration at over 30 universities and colleges, Managing Technology in Higher Education argues for a radically new approach to the management of technology in higher education institutions, focuses on innovation in the design and delivery of teaching, increasing flexible access for learners, and improving cost-effectiveness.
