At a time of rapid, systemic change, decision-makers must be skilled at recognizing patterns that point to the future of higher education. Many resources exist that follow, describe, and analyze trends. One such resource is the NMC Horizon Report. The 2014 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). For more than a decade, the NMC Horizon Project has been researching emerging technologies with the potential to affect teaching, learning, research, creative inquiry, and information management. How might you use this research to make the best possible strategic decisions to ensure mission-driven integration of pedagogy and technology? These NMC Horizon Report slides were used during an discussion led by NITLE Senior Fellow Bryan Alexander in which participants reviewed the Horizon Report, identified local patterns that supported or contradicted the projections described, and evaluated their potential impact for individual programs or institutions.
