IAP BOOK SERIES
Innovative Perspectives of Higher Education: Research, Theory and Practice
Call for Book Proposal Submissions"Higher education stands on the precipice of radical change," says Dr. Kathleen P. King, award-winning author and researcher and editor of this IAP series. "This series provides administrators and faculty facing constant, swift and far-reaching demands and innovations, leading edge research, perspectives and strategies to meet these challenges and launch the next waves of transformative research." From e-learning to faculty development, for profit colleges, community college changes, leadership, mentoring, assessment to diverse student populations, the authors address timely issues with a three prong approach of research, theory and practice. The series is broad enough to include not only teaching, administration, student affairs, governance, faculty issues, evaluation and research, technology developments, and more, but also focused to provide innovative perspectives with grounded recommendations. The Innovative Perspectives of Higher Education: Research, Theory and Practice series leverages interdisciplinary insight through diverse expert and emerging authors from many disciplines to provide rich research and direction for today and tomorrow.
