Early call for expressions of interest in Chairing the 2014 ALT Conference
2-4 September 2014
ALT's Trustees are seeking an experienced Chair (or 2 Co-Chairs) for the 2014 Conference Programme Committee and its executive, who will play a major role in planning and delivery of ALT-C 2014.
The role is unremunerated, but travel and subsistence costs will be met by ALT, with the conference fee waived. We are looking to appoint a person (or two people) with the following qualities:
- National/international standing in the learning technology field.
- The commitment and vision to make the conference a success.
- The capacity to chair a major conference, and its programme committee.
- Enthusiasm for and/or experience of working with ALT.
We would also prefer to appoint someone who has not previously chaired or co-chaired ALT-C.
Planning and organisation of ALT-C will be the responsibility of the ALT Director of Development and the Chair/Co-Chairs of the Programme Committee, with support from key committee members and from the ALT staff team.
To express an interest, please send an email to Maren Deepwell email@example.com, organised under the 4 headings above, to arrive by 30 September 2012. Expressions of interest from pairs of people interested in co-chairing with each other can be submitted as a single email. As an informal guideline, please limit your expression of interest to no more than 500 words in total. We are particularly interested in hearing of any significant changes you might like to see when compared with previous years, especially in the area of online participation.
A call for Programme Committee members for ALT-C 2014 will be issued in 2013 and we expect that a substantial proportion of Programme Committee members will have been involved with previous ALT conferences i.e. they are an experienced and constructive body of people who will be a delight to work with.
