This past month I’ve been doing a lot of travelling and contributing to a number of face to face and virtual consultation sessions about ALT’s accreditation scheme for Learning Technology professionals, CMALT.
From Mozfest to Committee Meetings and from webinars to individual focus groups I’ve been hearing why fellow professionals value CMALT accreditation, what could be improved and how we may expand the scheme to offer valuable and robust peer-assessed recognition for a broader range of professional achievement. You can read more about the project on ALT’s website and also sign up for more information and to take part in the pilots.
It’s been really interesting to hear about how the scheme could be developed and people’s experiences of their own journey to accreditation and then onward as a peer assessor.
Great afternoon yesterday as @MarenDeepwell braved the Scottish weather to award our latest #CMALT holders their University of Edinburgh cups. Well Done Everyone! @brendanowers @graemeferris @nickdaniels @SFarley_Charlie @lconnelly09 @LornaMCampbell @HoneybHighton @UoE_LTW pic.twitter.com/dIPjgeYsOW

It reminded me once again how varied a professional landscape we have in Learning Technology and to how many different roles all across an institution the work of making intelligent use of technology for learning, teaching and assessment extends.
