Fee reduction on ALT certified membership

Share this on social media:

The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) is launching a 50 percent reduction on certification fees for learning technology practitioners applying to become certified members of the Association.

Part-funded by a grant from the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) e-Learning Programme, the limited offer applies to applications received up to 31 July 2008. Any individual working in UK higher or further education (including Adult & Community Learning and Work Based Learning) may apply for the discount.

Seb Schmoller, chief executive of ALT said: ‘We expect plenty of interest in the special offer for CMALT applicants. Learning technology is playing an increasingly important role in education and training in the UK, and certification is one way for learning technologists to have their experience and capabilities judged by peers, and to demonstrate that they are taking a committed and serious approach to their professional development.’

David Burrows, director of public sector, strategy and marketing, Microsoft UK, said: ‘We recognise the value of schemes like CMALT, with its emphasis on enhancing the professional standing of people whose work involves the effective application of IT in teaching and learning, wherever they are employed.’

Sponsoring members of the ALT include Becta, HEFCE, Microsoft, the Scottish Funding Council, Adobe, and the Learning and Skills Council.
