2021 Winter Conference

ALT’s longest established online conference is returning 15-16 December 2021, for a special celebratory edition incorporating this year’s Learning Technologist of the Year Awards.

We are offering discounted rates for ALT Members, and free scholarship places.  Registration is now open!

The full two day programme will feature speakers from across sectors and bring together experts to discuss the most urgent questions facing institutions and individuals as they scale up the use of technology for learning, teaching and assessment. From creating a framework for the ethical use of Learning Technology to scaling up provision in an emergency and beyond, the conference will provide an opportunity to showcase excellence in EdTech practice and research.
