New CMALT initiative: Pathways to CMALT

ALT strategic aim image

CMALT, ALT’s Certified Membership scheme, is a peer-based professional accreditation scheme developed by ALT to enable people whose work involves learning technology to:

  • have their experience and capabilities certified by peers

  • demonstrate that they are taking a committed and serious approach to their professional development.

Following member feedback from the Annual Survey, and as set out in the ALT Strategy 2017-2020, we are launching a new CMALT initiative designed to provide a structured, peer-based framework for individuals undertaking CMALT independently or as part of a group.

We will provide open online support – in the form of dedicated resources and feedback from tutors and peers – for candidates as they complete CMALT. They will be able to follow a variety of pathways, including any or all sections of the CMALT portfolio, over a period of up to six months, leading to completion and submission of their CMALT portfolio.

The new initiative will incorporate the piloting of two new CMALT strands, for early career candidates, and for candidates in senior and leadership roles.

CMALT is suitable for learning technology professionals with at least two years of professional experience.

Early career CMALT will be appropriate to professionals who are seeking to gain an entry level accreditation in Learning Technology (incl. postgraduate and early career professionals).

The senior/leadership CMALT strand will be appropriate for professionals with three or more years of experience, whose role involves learning technology and who are seeking to gain an advanced accreditation.

If you would be interested in finding out more about this initiative, or in taking part in one of the new strands being piloted within the CMALT framework, or if you have CMALT resources you would be interested in contributing, please sign up at: http://go.alt.ac.uk/cmalt-pilot-registration.
