The NMC Horizon Project Reaches 195 Countries!

The NMC Horizon Project is a global ongoing research initiative that explores the trends, challenges, and technology developments likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. Founded in 2002, it uniquely provides a cross-sector view of disruptors in higher education, K-12, academic & research libraries, and museums, with NMC Horizon Report editions that focus on each. Subsequent virtual events in the NMC Beyond the Horizon series delve deeper into the subject matter, offering opportunities for participants to collaborate on devising strategies that solve pressing challenges and create better experiences for learners. Anyone with a stake in making teaching and learning more engaging, inclusive, and relevant can improve their knowledge and enhance their leadership via NMC Horizon Project resources. Each publication is published with an open license to promote sharing, remixing, and adapting. Nearly every edition is free to all, with NMC members receiving early access and special perks.
