From the technologies that drive student engagement, to innovations in creating, sharing, and collaborating on information, to the devices and infrastructure that make it all possible, the NMC Summer Conference curriculum always attracts a wide range of attendees. And, as the promise of technology becomes real for more and more institutions on a day-to-day basis, we are welcoming more people into the NMC Community and into our conversations about digital storytelling, the demands of the collaborative classroom, applications of innovations in the Arts and Sciences, and more.

Faculty in new media disciplines, mid- to upper-management personnel, and senior technologists at museums, colleges, and universities will continue to find the NMC Summer Conference one of the most relevant and engaging weeks of their year. The gathering also serves as a unique opportunity for the NMC Community to come together in person to discuss the state of education and our roles as innovators. The passion we all share for learning and creative inquiry is unequalled by any other organization, and every June we relish the chance to reintroduce ourselves to each other and the work we are all doing to transform the lives of students and teachers.
Again this year, the NMC Summer Conference is featuring special interest session pathways for attendees: a Digital Humanities Pathway, a Games Pathway, a K-12 Pathway, a Museum Pathway, a Production Pathway, and a Research Pathway. These pre-selected, highlighted sessions will feature speakers and panels with significance and relevance for anyone interested in the particular pathway. With a wide range of speakers and sessions devoted to each, and the ability to engage depending on your own perspective, pace of adoption and understanding, the NMC Summer Conference is designed to offer something for technologists and educators at every level.
The conference will also include the always-popular Five Minutes of Fame, Poster and Interactive Sessions, and Art Show. Additional Preconference Workshops will be available Tuesday, June 12. See all the particulars on the Summer Conference Program Page coming soon.
