About ALT

ALT is the leading UK body bringing together practitioners, researchers, and policy makers in learning technology.

ALT was formed in 1993, and is a registered charity. Our work is supported by 6.5 permanent FTE staff, 6 of whom are based in the ALT Office in Oxford, and one of whom is home-based.

ALT aims to:

  • represent and support our members, and provide services for them;
  • facilitate collaboration between practitioners, researchers, and policy makers;
  • spread good practice in the use of learning technology;
  • raise the profile of research in learning technology;
  • support the professionalisation of learning technologists;
  • contribute to the development of policy.

Currently we have as members:

  • over 600 individuals;
  • the majority of the UK's higher education institutions, and over 50 further education colleges;
  • a growing number of private and public sector organisations;
  • a range of sponsoring members, for example Becta, the Learning and Skills Council, HEFCE, as well as large software, hardware, and e-learning businesses.
