Supporting Members during industrial action

  We are taking action to support ALT Members who are taking part in forthcoming strike action in the UK [University and College Union (UCU) announcement of strike action on pensions and on pay and working conditions, Thursday 20 February - Friday 12 March].

Led by the Board of Trustees, we have reviewed our activities and events as well as deadlines for participation and taken action to:

  • Re-schedule the Board of Trustees meeting to 17 February;

  • Reviewed all deadlines for the Call for Proposals for ALT’s Annual Conference;

  • Reviewed all deadlines for the 2020 Entries to the Learning Technologist of the Year Awards

  • Offer alternative ways for Members to participate via email and asynchronously in the RLT Editorial Team meeting and the meeting of the OER Conference Committee as these could not be rescheduled. 

Unfortunately the following events and activities have had to be cancelled:

  • Meeting of the ALT Assembly, 4 March;

  • Getting Started with CMALT, 26 February 

  • CMALT webinar for Assessors, 11 March 

Whilst we continue to provide membership services to Members from across sectors in the UK and internationally we are glad to re-arrange meeting dates and support our Members taking part in the strike during the next period in other ways. Please contact us if you require support or further information.

The Association for Learning Technology is an independent, charitable membership body which represents individual and organisational Members from all sectors. 

Independence is one of our core values. ALT is solely being funded from membership and events income, and in February 2018 ALT became a fully independent organisation. As an independent charity ALT maintains strong connections with Higher Education Institutions as well as other sectors, sector bodies, membership organisations and unions.
