About this book

This book focuses on developing an understanding of the complex interplay of forces acting on individual universities and higher education systems to enable leaders and practitioners to take purposeful and strategic action. It explores the challenging landscape of higher education and the pressures that are reshaping the university as a societal institution, describing the complex interplay of technological, sociological, political and economic forces driving change. The issues analysed are global in scope, reflecting the diversity of contexts, but also the common nature of the challenges facing institutions individually and collectively. The analysis draws on the lessons learnt and evidence from over fifty organisational case studies undertaken by the author over the past decade, exploring organisational change in higher education institutions in New Zealand, Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom, and on his engagement as president of the ACODE organisation with colleagues responsible for learning technological change in Australasia. The book helps institutions respond to technological change purposefully, in ways that build upon a clear understanding of the complex nature of the existing institution, its students and the organisational context.

Reviews

“This book is inquisitive, insightful, and constructive. … this book can be enlightening for academic researchers, teacher trainers, administrators, policymakers, and learners interested in cutting-edge research on new and emerging technologies in education. It is also good for university leaders to explore how to use technology in education and to understand how its use has shaped the concepts of education and higher learning.” (Hua-Ling Guo and Ya-Ting Huang, Higher Education, Vol. 79, 2020)
