Although the advancement of educational technologies is often discussed in a teaching capacity, the administration aspect of this research area is often overlooked. Studying the impact technology has on education administration not only allows us to become familiar with the most current trends and techniques in this area, but also allows us to discover the best way forward in all aspects of education. The Handbook of Research on Technology-Centric Strategies for Higher Education Administration is a pivotal resource covering the latest scholarly information on the application of digital media among aspects of tertiary education administration such as policy, governance, marketing, leadership, and development. Featuring extensive coverage on a broad range of topics and perspectives including virtual training, blogging, and e-learning, this book is ideally designed for policy makers, researchers, and educators seeking current research on administrative-based technology applications within higher education.

Architecture functions between tradition and innovation, between historical archetypes and that which as yet has no form. This historicity and concurrent openness to futurity are two of the subjects discussed in Anytime, which probes architecture's relationships with space and time. After a section called "Beginnings," in which ten young architects address rupture, change, and movement, the book is organized into five sections: Trajectories, The Collapse of Time, (M)anytimes, Futures, and Rethinking Space and Time. Contributors include Akira Asada, Hubert Damisch, Peter Eisenman, Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki, Fredric Jameson, Rem Koolhaas, Bruce Mau, John Rajchman, Michael Sorkin, and Bernard Tschumi, as well as architects whose work many American readers will encounter here for the first time. Anytime is the eighth book in the ongoing series that began in 1991 with Anyone and was followed by Anywhere, Anyway, Anyplace, Anywise, Anybody, and Anyhow. Each volume is based on a conference at which architects and leaders in other fields come together to present papers and discuss a particular a particular idea in architecture from a multicultural and multidisciplinary perspective. The conference upon which Anytime is based took place in Ankara, Turkey, in June 1998. Anytime will be followed by Anymore and Anything.
