The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) is the leading professional body for Learning Technology in the UK. We represent individual and organisational Members from all sectors including Further and Higher Education and industry. We provide recognition and accreditation for all with a professional interest in Learning Technology.
Since we were established in 1993, our community has grown to over 3,500 Members as Learning Technology has become a fundamental part of learning, teaching and assessment. The pervasiveness of learning technology means that many working in education will be involved with it in some form, so therefore we embrace the diverse range of roles, titles and terminology in Learning Technology across sectors. We believe ‘you don’t have to be called ‘Learning Technologist’ to be one.
