The group was established following a meeting at the University of Cambridge in December 2018 and approved by the Trustees of ALT in April 2019.
The aim of the group is to:
- Build a community of ALT Members in the East of England to promote and enhance the use of learning technology and advance the profession.
- Allocate three face-to-face meetings per year to take place in the Autumn, Spring and Winter. Venue to rotate between institutions willing to host.
- Operate occasional online/social events for networking and support (e.g. for CMALT).
- Share best practice via communication channels such as social media, online webinars and email list (www.jiscmail.ac.uk/ALTEASTENGLAND).
- Propose submission for ALT conference to showcase work by East of England members.
- Represent the ALT East England community on national and international groups, and to establish and foster links with similar groups (e.g. ALDinHE, ELESIG, CILIP).
- Interact with ALT Trustees to develop relations, such as attending the ALT Conference.
- Involve ALT regional groups and special interest groups in relevant events planning in a way that achieves ALT’s goals.
- Research, communicate and plan projects around relevant legislation (e.g. accessibility, GDPR).
- Discuss best practice around subjects relevant to members such as active/collaborative learning, lecture capture & data analytics.
