I’m an ex officio member of the Programme Committee for the Association for Learning Technology’s annual conference, ALT-C (September 2010), and thought some of you might be interested in submitting a proposal for the conference. This year’s theme is “Into something rich and strange” – making sense of the sea-change.
The call closes on Feb 15th at midnight GMT. We are keen to attract a good spread of submissions addressing the “Into something rich and strange” theme. Recent events in the funding area such as the Mandelson letter to HEFCE and the JISC announcements on capital funding make it even clearer that there is a sea change underway. While the tide may be out on which one is rich and which one is strange, there is no doubt that the theme is topical.
We are highlighting the following themes:
1. the changing paradigms and structures for learning;
2. increasing productivity and effectiveness, whilst mitigating risks;
3. responding to and shaping the organisational landscape;
4. meeting the changing expectations and needs of learners, employers, and society;
5. the changing design skills and knowledge needed to support learning and teaching with technology
