Launching the ALT Annual Survey 2020: Capturing sector response to the COVID pandemic

 Annual Survey 2020

ALT’s Annual Survey has now been run since 2014 with a number of the core questions remaining unchanged providing a unique insight into how Learning Technology is used across sectors as well as identifying emerging trends in current and future practice.

The survey has always provided an important insight into how professional practice within the field of Learning Technology is developing. Given the exceptional circumstances under which our Members have been working in response to the COVID pandemic, we are using this year’s survey to capture how the sector has adapted and also help inform ALT’s priorities to support our community in 2021/22.

Who should complete this survey?

If you are a Member of ALT we encourage you strongly to complete the survey yourself, even if you work for a member organisation. Representatives of member organisations are welcome to complete the survey once on an individual basis and also on behalf of their organisation. 

While this Annual Survey is primarily aimed at ALT Members it is open to anyone to complete. 

What happens to the data we collect?

All data submitted via this survey will be analysed and shared openly as part of the Open Covid Pledge for Education in anonymised form and handled in accordance with the ALT Privacy Policy. Results of the survey are openly published each year in spring. The survey forms the basis of important strategic insights for Members, and this past year we have expanded reporting from the survey to include a new gender perspective on professional practice in Learning Technology. Both the ALT Annual Survey and anonymised survey responses are shared openly in the ALT Repository

Deadline for responses - 18 December 2020 (extended to 11 January 2020)

The survey is open for responses now at and will now close 11 January 2020.
