NMC Projects

The NMC does cool stuff. It’s true — we are a community that loves what we do, and all of us are always looking to do more. We’re fortunate enough to partner with members, thought leaders, and innovators from around the world to launch a diverse set of programs, projects, and activities with a common purpose: create better opportunities for learning and creative expression.

We all know that the current education model isn’t as effective as it could be. NMC projects seek to optimistically chart the course for the future of education. Through activities that harness innovation from emerging technologies and new learning approaches, we strive to make learning more engaging, open, and inclusive.

The projects launched by the NMC aim to explore the relevant issues related to three core initiatives: Dynamic Knowledge, Emerging Technology, and New Collaborations. These initiatives are designed to address a need or challenge with potential impact in teaching, learning, research, and creative expression.
