Join the 2018 Annual Conference Committee

For ALT’s 25th Annual Conference we will bring together different critical perspectives in Learning Technology from across our community that will examine the challenges ahead and question the shape of things to come.

We are putting our values into practice and Members at the heart of the conference, so in this spirit the event will be chaired collaboratively by the Trustees of ALT, led by Sheila MacNeill and Martin Weller.

Preview of conference themes:

  • Openness: open practice, resources, policy, data and governance
  • Participation: working in partnership with learners, informed consent, literacy, empowerment and leadership, accessibility and equity
  • Collaboration: working together on projects, scaling up, collaboration or across institutions and countries; real-time communication
  • Independence: critical and political perspectives, research and analysis that questions the purpose or impact of technology used for learning, teaching or assessment; learner driven education
  • Wildcard: educational technology research, practice or policy work from across sectors.


Get involved and join the 25th Annual Conference Committee

This year we are doing things a bit differently and offering all volunteers to sign up for what they are particularly interested in helping with in the run-up to and during ALT’s Annual Conference. It’s our 25th year and we want the conference to reflect our diverse and growing community across the UK and beyond.

The work of the Committee will start in January 2018 as the Call for Proposals is issued and continues up to the conference in September.
