A seemingly infinite range of methods and strategies has evolved to exploit the potential of technology. The problem has not been a scarcity of research. Literally thousands of studies related to computers and learning have been published during the past three decades. The problem has been one of making sense of the enormous, and growing, body of available research.
There is growing interest in using the capability of new technology in an efficient and effective way to meet the instructional and research needs of faculty and students. The use of information technology is one of many steps to achieving excellence. Yet the renewed interest in furthering excellence in higher education through information technology has brought with it a greater emphasis on the need for high-caliber leadership in this capacity. Competence, integration of learning, collaboration with industry, cooperation among campuses at various levels, cooperative acquisition efforts, and transferability of learning from one institution to another are all important elements in the leadership approach to IT in higher education.
In addition to an extensive literature review, this research study used an experimental and quantitative, self-designed and administered survey instrument to determine the attitudes and perceptions of 40 qualified respondents, comprising IT leaders, IT faculty, and administrators in higher educational at two institutions in the state of Michigan.
