Implementing new technology at a college or university requires more than simply buying new computers and establishing a Web site. The successful use of technology for teaching and learning also demands major changes in teaching and organizational culture. In Managing Technological Change, Tony Bates—a world-renowned expert on the use of technology in university teaching—provides practical, systematic strategies for creating the new, technologically competitive academic organization. Drawing on recent research and best practice case studies—as well as on his thirty years of experience in using technology for teaching—Bates provides a wide range of strategies for managing change to ensure the successful use of technology. He suggests strategies for winning faculty support for teaching with technology and provides advice on appropriate decision-making and reporting structures. Other topics covered include reward systems, estimating costs of teaching by technology, and copyright issues. And he details the essential procedures for funding new technology-based systems, managing the technology, and monitoring its ongoing educational effectiveness in anticipation of future changes. Throughout the book, Bates maintains a focus on the human factors that must be addressed, identifying the risks and penalties of technologically based teaching and showing how to manage those hazards. Managing Technological Change is a blueprint for creating the university or college of the future—a timely, nuts-and-bolts guide to changing strategies for the leaders of campuses undergoing technological transformation.
