Following our introductory session last month, the BLE CMALT Cohort is now open for registration for staff at the BLE partner institutions. If you were not able to attend the meeting, a recording of the session is available here. The slides shown during the meeting are here
Please confirm your intent to register by completing this form by Friday 31st August 2018. You will be sent an introductory welcome email from ALT with links to all relevant documents. You will also then be given access to the BLE CMALT course on Moodle and added to the BLE CMALT mailing list.
The cohort will meet monthly on the first Wednesday of the month during lunch time; the first meeting will take place on Wednesday 5th September, 1230-1430 in Bloomsbury.
Registration is usually £150 per person. However, for groups of between 5 and 9 candidates, ALT offers 10% off each registration, which would be £135. For groups of 10+ they offer 20% off each registration, which would be £120., I will be able to confirm the fees once we reach those thresholds.

CMALT (Certified Membership of the Association for Learning Technology) is the professional accreditation scheme developed by ALT (the Association for Learning Technology) for anyone whose work involves learning technology. The scheme enables candidates to
● have their experience and capabilities certified by peers;
● demonstrate that they are taking a committed and serious approach to their professional development.
Accreditation is achieved by successful submission of a reflective, online portfolio, which evidences skills and experience in learning technology across four core areas and a specialist area. In the past three years, over 50 staff members from across the BLE partners have set off on their CMALT voyage - many have now achieved their CMALT accreditation. Previous cohorts have comprised academics, librarians, learning technologists, careers advisers and professional support staff who all have a strong interest in learning technology.
