This year we have invited the 2018 winners to present at a series of webinars - to share details of the excellent work, practice or research that led to their award: https://altc.alt.ac.uk/2018/awardsvoting/
Please book to join us for some lunchtime inspiration with two of the 2018 winners Andy Beggan and Student Video Support Assistants, University of Lincoln and Peter Shukie:
Andy Beggan, Student Video Support Assistants, University of Lincoln, Second place in the Team Award 2018.
Lincoln’s Student Video Support Assistant (VSA) team emphasizes the role of the student as academic collaborators in the production of new knowledge for staff and students alike. The VSAs work alongside staff to create relevant, appropriate and student-focussed resources whilst simultaneously developing professional skills and practical experience.
This successful collaboration has resulted in nearly 300 video projects to date.
Peter Shukie - Joint second place for the Individual Learning technologist of the year Award 2018
Peter Shuckie from Blackburn College uses technology to bridge the gaps between institutions and communities - bringing people together through the development of the project networks, the scope of the technology modules and the integration of technology support, community groups and a Community Open Online Courses (COOCs) platform. He believes that technology allows us to reimagine who creates learning and knowledge and rethink what teaching might be.
Established in 2007, the ALT Learning Technologist of the Year Awards celebrate and reward excellent practice and outstanding achievement in the Learning Technology field, and aim to promote intelligent use of Learning Technology on a national scale. The Awards are open to individuals and teams based anywhere in the world.
