Rebooting the Academy
From the blurb of The Chronicle's first eBook, "Rebooting the Academy: 12 Tech Innovators Who Are Transforming Campuses":
Is higher-education the next bubble to burst? Plenty of people outside of academe think it's an industry ripe for disruption and change. New approaches to teaching and research with digital tools are being tried that could be transformative to the future of higher education. Rebooting the Academy takes you inside a dozen of these ideas.
The compilation is available for purchase through The Chronicle’s iPad App, on Amazon, and on the Barnes & Noble Nook store. Links provided at The Chronicle Releases Its First E-Book: ‘Rebooting the Academy’ ("We think there’s value in bringing all of this material together in one convenient package, now that so many college administrators and professors are using e-readers and tablets.")
