Exploring Institutional Logics for Technology-Mediated Higher Education

Neelam Dwivedi, Exploring Institutional Logics for Technology-Mediated Higher Education. ISBN 9781138598805. Pages: 206

This book explores higher education’s response to technology-mediated communication. By adopting an analytical perspective, the author carries out an empirical study on the emergence of a “cyber-cultural institution within higher education”. The latter helps understanding faculties’ refusal to adopt online education, students’ struggle with mediated teaching and ways to upscale online education. The various chapters cover, among others, undergraduate education in the US; macro contradictions and micro conflicts. The appendices provide for an overview of the selected theory and research methodology. The author, Neelam Dwivedi, is an Assistant Teaching Professor at Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University, USA.
