ALT Annual Conference 2015: Call for Programme Committee

Annual Conference 2015: Shaping the Future of Learning Together #altc, 8-10 September 2015, University of Manchester, UK.

As the leading Learning Technology conference in the UK, the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) annual conference brings together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from across education to share their research and experience.

The 2015 conference will be chaired by Amanda Jefferies, University of Hertfordshire and Liz Masterman, University of Oxford, under the theme ‘Shaping the Future of Learning Together #altc’. The programme will reflect the theme of shaping and sharing learning through breaking down the traditional divisions between stakeholders and between their roles, with a focus on:

Harnessing the power of the crowd – collaboration and connectivist learning;
Social media in learning and teaching;
Open educational practice;
Learners as agents of change;
Participatory approaches to the development of learning technologies.

The Annual Conference will give you the opportunity to network, explore new learning technologies at the exhibition, attend the presentation of the Learning Technologist of the Year Award, take part in the ALT AGM and participate in a variety of community-led activities including meetings of ALT’s regional and special interest groups.

ALT has recently issued a call for members of the 2015 Programme Committee this is summarised below and available in full at the link.
