It's Nice to Meet You!

The NUTN Network Advisory Board is comprised of higher education thought-leaders and innovators from the United States, Canada and Australia. The board provides insight into the ever-changing impact of technology on teaching and learning. Our Advisory Board includes experts in higher education leadership, faculty development, instructional design & pedagogy, marketing & communications, emerging technologies and multi-faceted educational funding. It also includes corporations serving the distance learning market.

The board members have volunteered for this task because they believe, while trends and gadgets are often fleeting, continued focus on the technology-mediated connection between teachers and learners is paramount. Board members work to ensure the NUTN Network evolves to meet the needs of its membership and the over 1.5 million students they serve.
