Conference Committee activities

Committee activities

ALT’s Annual Conference is organised by a Committee of volunteers. Find out who’s involved.

Peer Review

A key focus of the Conference Committee is to conduct the peer review of all proposals submitted to the conference once the Call for Proposals has been closed. Guidance for Reviewers is available here and we also provide support at committee meetings.

Guest posts

Committee Members are invited to write guest posts for publication on the conference platform, sharing their perspective on the event, looking back at past years or sharing advice and guidance for new authors and participants. Please send your post to fiona.jones@alt.ac.uk .

Promoting the conference

Help us spread the word about the conference and upcoming deadlines, keynote speakers and the social programme. Use #altc on social media, use the conference flyer (let us know if you’d like print copies) and link to https://altc.alt.ac.uk/2020/ .

Plan local activities

If you are based in or near London, we are looking for you to share your ideas and tips to help us plan a truly inclusive, enjoyable and varied social programme around the conference. We are looking for ideas for great places to meet up, where to stay, eat or what to discover that’s of interest to Learning Technologists. Share your ideas via #altc, email them or come along to the virtual meetings.

Chairing sessions

Conference Committee Members volunteer to chair all sessions during the event. We’ll be publishing details of how to volunteer together with guidance in due course.

All meetings will take place online via Blackboard Collaborate. The meeting room is always open and available. Here is a link to the meeting room.
