Item description for Advancing Campus Efficiencies (JB - Anker) by Sally M. Johnstone; WCET Associates...
Current technologies, when planned and used properly, can improve the academy for students and for those who serve students. This can be done by making the academic enterprise more efficient while offering students more opportunities to learn in styles and at paces that are more individualized than has ever been possible. Many of these new ideas incorporate the wise use of information and communication technologies.
Advancing Campus Efficiencies is a pragmatic and practical tool for deans, vice presidents, and presidents of private and public colleges and universities. Drawing on the Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunication s (WCET) more than 15 years of work on the effective use of technology to increase quality and efficiency in higher education, this book provides straightforward advice and nontechnical information to help college and university administrators respond to the calls for greater accountability in higher education and students increasing expectations for the availability of high levels of technology.
