ALT-logo-2014-transparent-full-green-187x113The ALT Annual Conference 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.

The event is delivered by the ALT Staff Team with the support of ALT Members. Here are the members of the ALT staff team. Note that most roles are not full time.
