About

ALT-logo-2014-transparent-full-green-187x113The ALT Annual Conference: Shaping the Future of Learning Together is an event managed by the Association for Learning Technology (ALT). ALT is the UK’s leading membership organisation in the learning technology field and a registered charity. Our purpose is to ensure that use of learning technology is effective and efficient, informed by research and practice, and grounded in an understanding of the underlying technologies, their capabilities and the situations into which they are placed.

We do this by improving practice, promoting research, and influencing policy.
