Top 5 Reasons to Attend NMC Summer Conference

(…because it’s so good, we don’t need 10.)

Want to effect real change at your institution or organization? Ready to learn new digital strategies and technology skills? Interested in the “Next Big Thing”? As the old saying goes, if you’re the smartest person in the room, maybe it’s time to move to a new one. Join us for the annual NMC Summer Conference (#NMC17), a peer-to-peer learning forum that will connect you with learning leaders from all backgrounds with one important mission — to shape a better future for education.

The best feedback we receive from participants is that it’s “the beach bonfire of conferences.” It’s the ultimate bonding experience for lifelong learners who are interested in advancing progressive education practices, enabled by technology. Big ideas, meet fun with friends!
Ummmm, have you seen our keynote speakers yet? Richard Culatta, incoming CEO of ISTE, will set the tone by kicking off the conference. Then Hack Education founder Audrey Watters will close it out by shaking things up like only Audrey can.
Humble brag moment — we have the best lineup of presenters representing Higher Ed, K-12, museums, and libraries. We believe all learning sectors can and should learn something from each other. That’s how imaginative practices are spread. Preconference workshops are also available for deeper, hands-on learning experiences.
Our 2017 host UMass Boston is kind of a big deal. Situated in one of our favorite cities, the campus is a hotbed for projects that bolster student success. UMass Boston leadership, faculty, and staff will be attending and presenting so you can learn more. Plus, they’re co-hosting what is sure to be a fabulous mix-n-mingle welcome reception.
Oh you’re still reading? Good. That means you have achieved peak attention span to enjoy our attendee-favorite: Five Minutes of Fame. In this plenary, learn about forward-thinking edtech projects in five-minute doses. If a prolific presenter surpasses the five? Laugh at (or with) them as they get gonged off the stage.
