Learners as Creators: Release of the 2nd Digital Literacy Brief

August 17, 2017, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT (UTC -5:00) This event is free to all. What does digital literacy look like around the world? A host of frameworks, tools, and exemplars are increasingly placing college students in the driver’s seat as content and media creators. In a discussion moderated by lead author Bryan Alexander, join the NMC for the official release of our followup NMC Horizon Project Strategic Brief focused on digital literacy. In addition to expanding upon the preliminary definitions outlined in the first report, the brief includes more global and discipline-specific information and context. The aim is for this deep exploration of frameworks and initiatives to contribute to the body of knowledge used by the higher education community to inform strategic planning around digital literacy.

NMC Beyond the Horizon > EdTech and Evolving Roles of Faculty

July 19, 2017, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM CDT (UTC -5:00) This event is free to all. Advances in educational technology are altering delivery methods of course materials as well as student interactions with the content and their instructors. Adaptive technology platforms and advancements in online learning tools are disrupting traditional learning models, some faculty perceive the changes as a paradigm shift that diminishes their role in designing the learning experience. These tools are freeing up faculty to undertake deeper roles as mentors, guiding students through active learning exercises instead of dispensing information in lecture formats. Join us to hear from two presenters who are addressing the evolving roles of faculty and collaborate on devising strategies with your colleagues.
