Edited by Judith Boettcher, Mary Doyle, and Richard W. Jensen
Because technology is moving at a rapid pace, institutions are rethinking how they approach planning. Accelerated life cycles demand that attention be paid to planning on a continuous basis rather than on a "once every so many years" model. This publication, sponsored by Datatel, provides planners with a set of guiding principles as well as case study illustrations that put these principles into practice. If you need to know how technology is changing the way we plan for higher education, read this book and benefit from experts who have addressed today's challenges.
