About Rockcliffe

Rockcliffe University Consortium is an online organization dedicated to the advancement of technology in education. Rockcliffe’s uniqueness is in how we make use of accessible technology to support adult learner education that is affordable on a teacher’s salary, and scalable on a student’s budget. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment which allows professional instructors, designers, and developers to prototype new ideas for understanding digital literacy skills for a digital future using mixed reality based technologies.

Rockcliffe maintains no paid staff. Rockcliffe’s events and services are supported by dozens of volunteers throughout North America and Europe. Member involvement is vital to the success of the association. Rockcliffe volunteers have the unique opportunity to engage with other members internationally while impacting trends, issues and services available for educational professionals.

Volunteering with Rockcliffe is an investment in your career, which provides you with unique learning and leadership opportunities.
