The NMC Board of Directors is a group of ten visionary individuals who voluntarily contribute their time and share a common commitment to the promise of technology to transform the work we do as learners and educators. The NMC Board focuses its time and considerable talents on considering the future of both formal and informal education and in setting the strategic course for the NMC in that future.The Board has embraced the principles of policy governance, and shares the following core beliefs:

  • We are unabashedly pro-technology, and our passion for the work we do is fueled by what we believe to be true about education.
  • We believe that education not only should change its core practices, but that it must.
  • We believe that the need for change is urgent — we cannot continue to tweak the same outmoded models and expect results that have eluded us for decades.
  • We believe that technology — itself a dynamic and ever-changing landscape — provides the levers to enable that change. If we can embrace the never-ending flow of new technologies and put creative thought to how to apply them, those same processes can be applied to other organizational dynamics.
  • Furthermore, we believe that technology brings us more than a facility in managing change. It connects us in ways that matter, and allows expression to our humanity.
