The European higher education sector is moving online, but to what extent?
Are the digital disruptions seen in other sectors of relevance for both academics and management in higher education?
How far are we from fully seizing the opportunities that an online transition could offer?
This insightful book offers a broad perspective on existing academic practices, and discusses how and where the move online has been successful, and the lessons that can be learned. Higher Education in the Digital Age offers readers a comprehensive overview of the ways in which a move into online academia can be made.
Analysing successful case studies, the original contributions to this timely book address the core activities of an academic institution - education, research, and research communication - instead of focusing only on online learning or digital strategies relevant for individual academics.
Chapters cover online and networked learning, as well as the myriad ways in which the digital age can improve research and knowledge exchange with experts and society more widely. Academics, managers and policy makers in higher education institutions will greatly benefit from the up-to-date case studies and advice outlined in this book.
Academic administrators and academic project leaders will also find this a useful tool for improving the accessibility of their work.
