Overview

Information technology (IT) has transformed human resource management across our society, and its influence on higher education has been profound. Technology Everywhere addresses the dual role played by colleges and universities that must recruit, hire, and train knowledge worker professionals and educate IT learners to manage the ever-increasing flow of information both on campus and off. Each chapter in this much-needed volume addresses a critical phase of IT human resource management, identifies key issues, and offers practical advice based on actual experiences that can help colleges and universities develop a plan of action to respond effectively to the IT workforce challenge.
