Building on ALT’s professional accreditation framework, CMALT, which was expanded to include ethical considerations for professional practice and research last year, our initial aim is for ALT to establish a framework that can be used as a starting point for informing the ethical use of Learning Technology by professionals, institutions and industry. We have received a lot of of input from the working group, including many links to resources and organisations that can help inform the framework and we have worked to define a set of ethical principles which will form the core of the new framework alongside tools including for example a checklist or reflective questionnaire, to help individuals, institutions and industry to see how these principles are put into action.
Deadline: 9th June 2021.
Members of the initial working group led by ALT Trustees Bella Abrams, Sharon Flynn and Natalie Lafferty, now include nearly 100 individuals including learners and representatives from industry.
