What are the emerging trends in ed-tech and how will they impact your design and delivery of your learning initiatives?

You’ll find the answers in this interactive session with Paul Signorelli and Samantha Adams Becker when they walk you through the NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition.

Paul has been a member of the NMC Horizon Project Expert Panel since 2010. Samantha is the Director of NMC Horizon Project and lead writer and researcher for the NMC Horizon Report series. Together, they will share insights from their research and discuss implications of these ed-tech trends in workplace learning and performance.
By participating in this session, you’ll learn:
  • Key trends and challenges of integrating technology in learning design and delivery
  • Six emerging technologies that are likely to be adopted over the next one to five years
  • How to use the NMC Horizon Report as a resource to keep up with the latest ed-tech trends for workplace learning professionals
As a bonus, you’ll get to hear stories about the recent Wiki-thon, an offshoot of the Horizon Project, and the innovative solutions that emerged from the Wiki-thon.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the insights from the NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition. Bring the learning back to your organizations or your clients.
