Description


Leading the Community College: Pathways Through an Exponentially Digital Age explains the differences between the technologies of the twentieth and twenty-first century. It provides an understanding of the differences between the linear development of twentieth century technologies and the exponential development of twenty-first century technologies, and discusses how the business community is already preparing for the exponential stage of the twenty-first century technologies. Furthermore, this book describes the impact of the exponential stage of these technologies on community colleges in terms of students, faculty, learning methods, staff, and the training the colleges provide to the business community. It predicts how businesses and community colleges may possibly merge in the future, and demonstrates the importance of each institution developing its own research to help guide the colleges to a viable future. This book provides a warning to those in community college leadership as to what is coming and provides guidance as to how to deal with the technologies when they move to the exponential stage.
