Call for proposals

We invite you to submit proposals for #ALTC24, by 12:00 BST on Monday 20 May 2024.

To thank our speakers, we offer a 15% discount on the price of registration for ALTC24. The discount code will be shared with accepted speakers once the peer review outcomes have been sent and before the speaker registration deadline on Wednesday 29 July.

We are seeking proposals that focus on the following session themes:

Doing, reflecting, improving, collaborating

Cultivating Collaboration

Partnerships are increasingly important, both internally and externally. That might be learners as partners, partnerships with vendors, or national and international partners.

  • What partnerships are you cultivating?
  • What lessons have you learned?
  • Are you seeking new partnerships?

Reviewing, Reflecting, Re-imagining

Part of the learning cycle is to reflect, review, and re-imagine how we do things.

  • How do we effectively review, reflect and re-imagine our own work?
  • What achievements and challenges have you experienced?
  • What reflections do you have on digital learning – that might be approaches to learning, old and new ‘tools’ we’re using well, or in different ways?
  • How do we (re-)imagine learning technology post-2024?

Inviting Improvement

  • What opportunities do we create for continuing professional development (CPD)?
  • How can we leverage the lifelong learning entitlement, digital badging, and digital literacies?
  • How do we develop ourselves and others through leadership and coaching?
  • How do we include both students and staff in these development opportunities?
  • How do we link this to continuous quality improvement in the learning and teaching we support?

Emerging research

Research or case studies focused on learning technology and education practices. Papers submitted to this theme will be published in our Annual Conference 2024 proceedings. Find out more.


If you’ve got something else to shout about or a challenge for which you want input from others, this is your slot.
