About NME2013

The New Media in Education Conference 2013 (NME 2013) is a free, one-day event sponsored by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning that will bring together the Columbia community and colleagues in higher education technology for dialogue around technology in education and academic life.

Speakers from Columbia and beyond will address critical issues affecting education and technology today, such as online learning, digital publishing, and social media. Subtitled "Bits to Breakthroughs," the 2013 conference will focus on how new media can enhance educational initiatives for meaningful local and global impact.

NME 2013 is the sixth biennial conference hosted by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning. Since CCNMTL's first conference in 2001, these free events have brought together the Columbia community to explore how digital tools and emerging technologies can enhance teaching and learning. Past conferences have focused on new media in the classroom, global education, and CCNMTL's strategic initiatives.
