Events

ALT runs an annual conference for learning technologists which is one of the largest of its kind, and takes place every September over three days. In addition, ALT organises an ongoing programme of events including one-day conferences, workshops and webinars. Events are usually open to all but members receive discounts on paid events. Current and upcoming events are shown below, including those we are associated with but are not actually running ourselves.

We are interested in proposals to run workshops or webinars, and suggestions for topics that could be covered by our events programme. If you have any ideas related to this, please contact us.

Open Badges provide a way to earn, issue and share achievements across the web and represent a paradigm shift in how and what we recognise in terms or a person’s ability. They can help people to evidence their skills, personal attributes and interests and are being issued by employers as well as educational institutions to link people to employment, apprenticeships and further learning. There have been a number of developments recently in the Open Badges sphere, both to the Open Badge specification and around uptake. Grainne Hamilton will discuss these, highlight some current projects and developments in industry, further and higher education and share some of the thinking influencing technical developments at DigitalMe.
