After very extensive member consultation ALT, launched its plan for the next three years.
Based in the UK, the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) is an independent educational charity with the objective of advancing education through increasing, exploring and disseminating knowledge in the field of Learning Technology for the benefit of the general public.
I’ve been really pleased to be an ALT member and trustee as the association brings together visionary and energetic experts as well as new energetic practitioners to maintain a momentum of debate about learning with technology which has stayed proudly independent of government funded fads which we have seen come and go in the last 20 years.
On a personal level, I am really pleased that ALT developed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Institute if Adult Continuing Education as there is real synergy between the aims of the two bodies and together they can offer an independent voice of reason in the world of learning technology increasingly driven at government level by sound-bites driven by cuts at home and education as export.
It is worth noting that Chief Executive, Maren Deepwell has proved herself a worthy successor to Seb Schmoller in her first two years at the helm of ALT – Keep it up Maren.
