Ed Cabellon and I are thrilled to share that we have been selected to serve as Co-Editors for an upcoming “New Directions for Student Services” (NDSS) sourcebook, to be published in 2016, tentatively titled, “Engaging the Digital Generation.”
The book will cover a variety of topics including how digital technologies have fundamentally changed higher education; new concepts of college student and professional staff identity and self development; building digital leadership capacity; applying big data in relevant and useful ways; evolving guidance documents; and the value to chief student affairs officers.
We are pleased to be partnering with an outstanding group of guest authors including Dr. Julie Payne-Kirchmeier (Northwestern University), Mr. Paul Gordon Brown (Boston College), Mr. Tony Doody (Rutgers University), Dr. Laura Pasquini (University of North Texas), and Ms. Kara Kolomitz (Regis College). Ed and I will also be writing a portion of the sourcebook as well!
What are your thoughts around our tentative content areas? Are there pieces missing that would help you as a practitioner in your work with students in higher education?
