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!
Thanks to Dr. Susan Jones and Dr. Sherry Watt, the new Editors of the NDSS series for giving us this opportunity. Check out all of the great volumes of NDSS from Jossey-Bass!
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?
