The NMC’s Horizon Report, created with input from a panel of over fifty international experts in higher education, has helped colleges and universities set priorities for technology planning, research, & practice since 2002. In the 2016 report, six key trends, six significant challenges, and six important developments in educational technology are identified across three adoption  horizons over the next one to five years, giving campus leaders, practitioners, and companies a  valuable guide for strategic technology planning and development. The report aims to provide  these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating  and impeding the adoption of educational technology, along with their implications for policy,  leadership and practice. The speaker will highlight topics and examples from the 2016 report &  describe how universities can anticipate and react to these coming changes. Topics addressed will include: Learning Analytics and Adaptive Learning, Redesigning Learning Spaces, Increasing Use of Blended Learning Designs, and more. Download the report today at:
