by

Publisher: MPublishing

Description:
This volume explores how the academy might be beneficially reformed using digital media and technology. The book represents a good snapshot of how scores of engaged academics who care deeply about higher education are trying to further its original goals of learning, scholarship, and service, albeit in novel ways that may be uncomfortable for those with a more conservative bent.
