The advent of Web-based education has focused attention on university and industry partnerships, particularly on ways in which online learning might lead to new models of collaboration and engagement across previously clearly delineated borders.

One of IGI Global’s newest releases, “Higher Education, Emerging Technologies, and Community Partnerships: Concepts, Models, and Applications,”edited by Dr. Rusty Carpenter, director of the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity at Eastern Kentucky University, and Melody Bowdon, University of Central Florida, takes on this challenge by presenting a comprehensive collection of research with an emphasis on emerging technologies, community value, and corporate partnerships.

Most importantly, the contributions in the collection argue that technologies are being used in compelling ways to forge partnerships between college students, staff and faculty members, and the communities around them. Outlining various concepts from an educational and technological standpoint, the reference book serves as a resource for academic administrators, instructors, and community practitioners.
