A view of the impact of emerging technology on higher education in the U.K. five years out

Technology Outlook: UK Tertiary Education 2011-2016

L. Johnson and S. Adams.              The New Media Consortium, 2011.

“The Technology Outlook for UK Tertiary Education 2011-2016 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. The same process underlies the NMC’s well-known Horizon Report series, which is the most visible product of an ongoing research effort begun nearly a decade ago to systematically identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on education around the globe.”
