Election statement, David White:

I have been part of the ALT community for around 16 years. Over this time I’ve taken an active role through running workshops and speaking at ALT-C and OER. I am also a regular participant in ALT online sessions. I feel I know this community well and bring a broad perspective from my extensive time in a cross-section of Higher Education institutions. 

As a Head of Digital Learning I have a real, lived, experience of what it means to manage and promote digital teaching and learning in a highly collaborative manner across a complex organisation. I manage a team of educational developers, elearning support and learning technologists so I am tuned into the concerns and opportunities which surround these roles. 

I have an international profile, based on open online practice, which intersects with active teaching and research communities. If appointed, I will be keen to help extend the reach and influence of ALT and advocate for the organisation's core values. 

Our relationship with digital has shifted radically in recent months leading to massive opportunities and risks for the HE sector. This is a key moment in time for ALT and I believe I am well placed to support the development of the organisation and the community.
