The ALT Strategy 2017-20 (https://www.alt.ac.uk/about-alt/what-we-do/alt-strategy) emphasises the need to provide stronger representation of and recognition for learning technology professionals on a national scale, and to continue to lead professionalisation for practitioners and researchers within the field in the context of an ever-evolving technology landscape and increasingly uncertain job market.
To meet these aims, a new CMALT initiative aims to provide more pathways to professional recognition and accreditation for Learning Technology professionals in the UK and beyond via CMALT. The new initiative will incorporate the piloting of two new CMALT strands, for early career candidates, and for candidates in senior and leadership roles.
This presentation introduces CMALT, the Association for Learning Technology’s peer-assessed professional accreditation for practitioners whose work involves learning technology. It outlines the benefits and requirements, and current developments within CMALT.
