Learning Technology plays an ever more central role in education at all levels. With this comes the need to measure excellence in this field and determine what good practice looks like.
ALT has been sharing, disseminating and promoting knowledge and best practice since 1993, helping to inform the appropriate and effective use of technology for learning, teaching and assessment.
With a growing membership of over 2,300 individual Learning Technology professionals, the organisation has the collective expertise to play a leading role in establishing professional benchmarks and models as tools, practice and skills evolve. We are committed both to disseminating and supporting the research and practice of ALT members through our publications, members and special interest groups, and events, and to leading professionalisation in the field by providing relevant and rigorous accreditation for individual practitioners. This is why - as Maren Deepwell, chief executive of ALT, explains in a post for the Efficiency Exchange - ALT is developing its accreditation scheme, CMALT, to take account of the growing proportion of the education workforce to which knowledge and skills in relation to Learning Technology are relevant: http://www.efficiencyexchange.ac.uk/12076/accreditation-fit-digital-purpose/.
