New Book Serves as a Framework for New Technological Ideas and Projects in Colleges and Universities

Best Technology Practices in Higher Education
January 10, 2005, Medford, NJ—Information Today, Inc. announced the publication of Best Technology Practices in Higher Education, edited by Les Lloyd. Through a series of case studies, the book demonstrates how technology is being used in a wide range of effective and creative ways by teachers, administrators, and IT professionals.

“A handful of progressive teachers and administrators are integrating technology in new and creative ways at their colleges and universities, raising the bar for all schools,” according to Les Lloyd, associate vice president for information technology at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fl. For this, his latest book, Lloyd sought out the most innovative and practical examples in a range of application areas, bringing together more than 30 technology leaders to share their success stories.

The book’s 18 chapters include firsthand accounts of school technology projects that have transformed classrooms, services, and administrative operations. The four major sections are “Best Practices in Teaching and Course Delivery,” “Best Practices in Administrative Operations,” “Technical or Integrative Best Practices,” and “Future Best Practices.”

Les Lloyd has worked in higher education technology administration for more than 20 years and has edited a number of books on the use of technology in schools, including Teaching With Technology, Technology and Teaching, and Administrative Computing in Higher Ed.

As associate vice president for Information Technology at Rollins College, Lloyd is responsible for all areas of technology including academic and administrative computing, networking and systems, desktop and laptop repair, and instructional technology.
