This week sees the Annual Conference, #ilta2016, of the Irish Learning Technology Association. The conference brings together the Irish community and international delegates to share practice and research and celebrate the Jennifer Burke Award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning. Much of the conference is accessible online via the conference website http://ilta.ie/edtech/edtech-2016/ .
Participating in the event is one example of how we have worked actively in partnership since ALT and ILTA signed a new partnership agreement in 2014. ALT and ILTA are both membership charities working to enhance learning technology knowledge and practise in education.
ILTA supports a community, interested in enhancing learning with technology, across corporate, formal and informal learning sectors. It also aims to foster engagement and collaboration, promote research, reward excellence and promote Irish and international evidence-based policy and practice.
ALT works to promote research, influence policy and improve practise in learning technology.
This year #ilta2016 we are sharing an update on accreditation for Learning Technology focused on the CMALT framework.
