Description

Information technology (IT) has transformed human resource management across our society, and its influence on higher education has been profound. Technology Everywhere addresses the dual role played by colleges and universities that must recruit, hire, and train knowledge worker professionals and educate IT learners to manage the ever-increasing flow of information both on campus and off. Each chapter in this much-needed volume addresses a critical phase of IT human resource management, identifies key issues, and offers practical advice based on actual experiences that can help colleges and universities develop a plan of action to respond effectively to the IT workforce challenge.

Index.
"It is increasingly clear that the weakest link in technology liesnot in hardware or software but rather in the workforce. Hawkins,Rudy, and Wallace have put together a superb collection of essaysthat explain ways to meet this challenge, despite the breakneckpace of technology."
--Martin Ringle, chief technology officer, Reed College

"This book is a valuable tool for IT professionals inunderstanding the current and future pressures of finding staff toprovide the services required, as well as for campus leaders inbuilding an articulated vision of the role each institution canplay in addressing these needs at a national level."
--Margaret F. Plympton, vice president for finance andadministration, Lehigh University

"At long last someone closes in on the critical crossroadsbetween the human resource offices charged with finding,recruiting, employing, and retaining IT workers on the one handand, on the other, the colleges and universities seeking toattract, enroll, prepare, and graduate IT learners. For too longthese two worlds seemed to live in parallel but distant universeswithout communicating very effectively with one another. Thechapters in this solid work give hope that convergence might yet behad-indeed, might well be near to hand. It's about time."
--Richard A. Skinner, president and CEO, Georgia GLOBE, and chair,1997 Task Force on Improving the Responsiveness Between Industryand Higher Education, Information Technology Association ofAmerica
