alt-logo_0_0In January 2018 the Association for Learning Technology joined the TLCs and we are looking forward to working more closely together.

The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) represents individual and organisational Members from all sectors and parts of the UK. Our Membership includes practitioners, researchers and policy makers with an interest in Learning Technology. Our community grows more diverse as Learning Technology has become recognised as a fundamental part of learning, teaching and assessment.

Our charitable objective is “to advance education through increasing, exploring and disseminating knowledge in the field of Learning Technology for the benefit of the general public”. We have led professionalisation in Learning Technology since 1993.

The ALT strategy sets out ALT’s aims for 2017-2020:

Increasing the impact of Learning Technology for the wider community, strengthening recognition and representation for the Membership at a national level and leading professionalisation for individual Learning Technology professionals in a broad range of roles.

ALDinHE Logo

In May 2018 we had the pleasure to welcome the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE) to the TLC family.

On their website it says “ALDinHE is the membership association for staff who work as Learning Developers, or have a role which involves supporting student learning. Learning Developers share a common desire to empower students in their learning through helping them make sense of academic practices within higher education and supporting them to acquire the generic underpinning skills for the environments in which they are working.”

Steve Briggs and Carina Buckley are the ALDinHE co-chairs.
