Colleagues,

 

I have gone through the CIO listserv archives with not much success. One of my previous presidents assists with the AASCU New Presidents’ Academy and has asked me to supply a reading list that will give new presidents an overview of technology in higher education (challenges and so forth). I am hoping that some of you will have some great suggestions that I could use.

 

Many thanks,

 

Frank Moore

I recommend two books:

IT Savvy (Weill and Ross) - target audience is CEOs primarily, great book
The Real Business of IT (Hunter) - target audience is CIOs, but I think it is just as easily understood by non-IT managers

Hi,

I'd start with the new e-book that can be downloaded from the Educause site:
http://www.educause.edu/game-changers Game Changers:  Education and Information Technologies edited by Diana Oblinger

Another good read is The Tower and The Cloud edited by Richard Katz - http://www.educause.edu/thetowerandthecloud

The Top Ten IT Issues is a good resource:  http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume46/TopTenITIssues2011/228654

You may also want to review the list under the CIO Bookshelf for additional materials:

Hope this helps.

Hi Frank,

I second Theresa's recommendation of the new e-book from EDUCAUSE.  The book is organized into two major sections:  chapters and case studies.  The chapters provide insight into trends in higher education in the new economy, while the case studies offer specific approaches to tackling those trends.

Hello, I second all of what Theresa says here, before she beat me to the punch I was going to recommend reading at least the last 5 or so years of 'Top Ten IT Issues.' Those are good appetizers to the full course of Diana's and Richard's books.

I also second Theresa's recommendations, especially, Diana's new e-Book and Educause's Top Ten IT Issues (for three to five years).

I would also recommend some of the latest good reads on today's students and technology, such as the ECAR National Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2011 Report.

Likewise, sharing some of those IT Strategic Plans many of us are working on, would be helpful to compare notes and open up the horizons. Wish we had a portal to share links to the repositories.
