Ethical use of Learning Technology and data has been a key focus for many organisations as online and blended learning is scaled up. Drawing on examples from their own work and context, the key questions our panel will discuss are:
- what are the biggest issues emerging in ethical approaches to online and blended learning and teaching;
- in what contexts does the need for an ethical framework arise and what are practical examples of this?
- what would you like to see included in the framework?

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 practical checklist that can be used as a starting point for informing the ethical use of Learning Technology by professionals, institutions and industry.
The need for such a framework has become increasingly urgent as Learning Technology has been adopted on a larger scale than ever before and as the leading professional body for Learning Technology in the UK, representing 3,500 Members, ALT is well placed to lead this effort.
Building on the checklist and outline framework we will develop a full framework with input from Members in 2021 including working with commercial organisations who are Members to road-test the framework with industry.

This is an important development for our community and we are looking for your input to develop ALT’s new framework. If you’d like to stay informed or get involved, please sign up here. We are looking for:
- input from staff, students and providers to inform the framework overall;
- individuals and organisations to help road-test the framework;
- existing research and frameworks to draw on.
