The three days of the Annual Conference are when our community comes together and shines. If you are a new participant, you may not know about what we do the rest of the year, so here is a quick starter:
- ALT is the leading professional body for Learning Technology, established in 1993. We have members from across all sectors and all parts of the UK;
- We are independent and funded through membership contributions and events;
- A lot of what we do is disseminated openly, including our Open Access journal, Research in Learning Technology;
- We have Special Interest groups, free to join for all, and Members Groups for different parts of the UK. Find one near you.
We define Learning Technology as the broad range of communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching, and assessment. 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. Find out more about what we do.
If you are unable to attend the event in person, but are participating remotely and watching the live stream, you can show your support by joining as a member:
- Join as an individual: the fee is only £54, and gives you access to our members-only mailing lists, newsletters, publications, and future events.
- Get your organisation to join: fees start at £200, and there is no better way for you and colleagues to connect to a community of expert practitioners and maximise your opportunities for professional development.
- Consider Certified membership: CMALT is our peer-assessed professional accreditation scheme, giving members recognition for their skills and experience, and the opportunity to reflect and shape their future development.
