Twelve Doug Gowan Fellows invited to ALT’s Annual Conference 2019


Funding from the Doug Gowan Memorial fund (in memory of Doug Gowan, President of ALT, who passed away in February 2016)  gives Learning Technology professionals in the UK the opportunity to travel to ALT’s Annual Conference they might otherwise be unable to attend.

We were delighted to receive a record number of applications, 17 in total. The fund is only available to individuals based in the UK, as travel and accommodation costs must be met from elsewhere and is specifically available to unfunded individuals, teaching and support staff and students, members of the public who are not otherwise supported by an organisation. The Trustees particularly aim to fund individuals from outside of Higher Education and this year prioritised applications from students, conference authors and unemployed applicants.

The following 12 applicants were selected to attend the conference:

  • Suzanne Faulkner
  • Anshul Lau
  • Kate Miller
  • Suki Haider
  • Andy Blackall
  • Paula Philpott
  • Bruce Mathews
  • Ceri Hitchings
  • Karen-Ann McSwiggan
  • Lizzie Seymour
  • Helen Beetham
  • Timothy Crawford

We invite all applicants to disseminate their conference experience and share it via the conference platform, the #altc blog and within their own networks.

The panel who reviewed the applications comprised: Daniel Clark, Treasurer, Sheila MacNeill, Chair and Maren Deepwell, chief executive.
