ALT Conference

The ALT Conference

The ALT Annual Conference is the UK's main conference for Learning Technologists and one of the largest conferences of its kind. It is held over three days every September, providing a valuable and practical forum for practitioners, researchers, managers and policy-makers from education and industry to solve problems, explore, reflect, influence and learn.

The next Annual Conference of the Association for Learning Technology will take place from 5-7 September 2023, at The Oculus, University of Warwick, UK. As the leading professional body for Learning Technology in the UK, ALT brings together professionals to disseminate research, share practice and develop policy since 1993.

Previous conferences

In 2021, the ALT Annual Conference was held online with the theme of 'Share experience, different perspective'.  As ALT’s first ever fully  virtual Annual Conference attracting 390 participants from 24 Countries, we were delighted to see so many synchronously online. 

In 2020, the ALT Online Summer Summit 2020 replaced the Annual Conference, due to the global pandemic. The Summer Summit brought together Learning Technology practitioners, researchers and policy makers to share strategies for the next academic year and the new challenges that now face us. The programme for the summit was made up of sessions with a practical focus on support, sharing expertise and networking.
