Technology Outlook for UK Tertiary Education 2011-2016: An NMC Horizon Report Regional Analysis
Johnson, L.; Adams, S.
New Media Consortium
This paper reflects a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the JISC Innovation Support Centres, CETIS and UKOLN. The research underpinning the report makes use of the NMC's Delphi-based process for bringing groups of experts to a consensus viewpoint, in this case around the impact of emerging technologies on teaching, learning, research or information management in UK tertiary education over the next five years. In an effort that ran from January through August 2011, the team behind this report considered a wide range of relevant articles, news, blog posts, research, and project examples as part of the preparation for a carefully selected group of 33 experts that ultimately pinpointed the most notable emerging technology topics, trends, and challenges for tertiary education in the United Kingdom over the next five years. That group of experts, known as the Horizon.JISC Advisory Board, is comprised of an international body of knowledgeable individuals, all highly regarded in their fields; collectively the advisory board represents a range of diverse perspectives across the learning sector. [This paper is a collaboration with the Centre for Educational Technology and Interoperability Standards (CETIS) and the United Kingdom Office for Library and Information Networking (UKOLN).]
