Featured Speakers

 

This year we are convening three debates as part of this year’s conference programme, to foster discussion around key issues. Here’s what’s in store:

 

Day 1: Learner Experiences

On the first day of the conference, we put the learner voice centre stage. Join a panel of learners from different sectors who share their insights into Learning Technology in practice, their experiences of the past year and their expectations going forward.

Featured Speakers include:

  • Taskeen Adams
  • Gloria Corra
  • Georgia Debling

 

Day 2: Launching ALT’s Ethical Framework for Professional Practice in Learning Technology

Nearly a year in development, we are excited to launch ALT’s ethical framework for Learning Technology. Building on ALT’s professional accreditation framework, CMALT, which was expanded to include ethical considerations for professional practice and research last year, our initial aim is for ALT to establish a framework that can be used as a starting point for informing the ethical use of Learning Technology by professionals, institutions and industry. We have received a lot of of input from the working group, including many links to resources and organisations that can help inform the framework and we have worked to define a set of ethical principles which will form the core of the new framework alongside tools including for example a checklist or reflective questionnaire, to help individuals, institutions and industry to see how these principles are put into action.

Featured Speakers include:

  • Cat Hallam
  • Bella Abrams
  • Sharon Flynn
  • Natalie Lafferty

 

Day 3: Future Perspectives

In our final plenary session of the conference, we are looking at what’s ahead in Learning Technology. Our speakers will be sharing their perspectives on future developments and participants are encouraged to join in to share their own questions and thoughts.

Featured Speakers include:

  • Dr Monica Chavez
  • Rebecca Garrod-Waters, Chief Executive, Ufi Trust
  • Professor Tim Drysdale
