Transforming Higher Education Through Technology Enhanced Learning
- Publication Date: 23-12-2009
The Higher Education Academy published the book Transforming Higher Education Through Technology Enhanced Learning in December 2009.
Although the book has its genesis in the e-learning Benchmarking & Pathfinder Programme led by the Higher Education Academy from 2005-2008 readers will find that the book contains a thought-provoking edited collection which offers far more than a straightforward account of outcomes of one national programme; you will find that it is both broad in scope and reflective in tone.
The book is available both in conventional printed and digital formats; this web page contains details about both.
A limited number of complimentary copies of the book are already being distributed. The Academy is, however, also exploring offering a print-on-demand solution for those wishing to acquire further physical copies once the initial distribution has been completed. This web page will provide details of the print-on-demand process when the service becomes available.
