What we do and what we value
We are the leading professional body for Learning Technology in the UK.
We support a collaborative community for individuals and organisations from all sectors including Further and Higher Education and industry and provide professional recognition and development.
Membership is open to all with a professional interest in using digital technologies for learning, teaching and assessment. We value collaboration, participation, openness and independence.
We work across the UK and internationally to increase the positive impact of Learning Technology in education and training for public benefit.
Our aims are to:
- Increase access to Learning Technology expertise and professional development.
- Strengthen professional recognition for and representation of all Learning Technology roles across the communities we support.
- Provide pathways to accreditation for general practitioners, advanced professionals and leaders through our professional and ethical competencies framework.
Strategic objectives for 2021/22:
As part of ALT's Strategy 2020-2025 (.pdf) we set out specific strategic objectives for each year, responding directly to Members’ feedback and priorities identified through the Annual Survey.
Our aim for the next 18 months is to move the charity from crisis management mode to thrive once again ahead of celebrating our 30th Annual Conference in September 2022.
We will develop our activities and services so that we meet the needs of our growing community of stakeholders, including general digital practitioners, dedicated learning technology professionals and educational leaders across all education and training sectors.
Our financial aim for the next 18 months is to return the charity to generating a surplus. We will achieve this by increasing revenue gradually, whilst managing expenditure. We aim to only make a small loss in 2021 and return to generating a surplus in 2022, which can be used to replenish the reserves needed during the crisis in 2020.
