For ALT-C 2008, UK based non-members paying the full-conference registration fee will be entitled to one year's free membership of ALT, providing the delegate complete a direct debit form for future renewal fees, about which ALT will make contact once a place was booked at the Conference.

Breakdown of the costs

The full conference and per day fees to attend covered all sessions, meals and refreshments throughout the day. ALT covered the cost to attend the Monday and Tuesday social events, but only for those who tell us that they want to attend these. For this reason you were asked to confirm your attendance at all social events at the time of booking.

Wednesday Gala Dinner Event

If you wanted to attend the Wednesday gala dinner event, at which the winners of the 2008 Learning Technologist of the Year Award and the 2008 Learning Object Competition wereannounced, there was an additional cost of UKP35 per head. This covered transport to and from the venue, a pre dinner drinks reception, four-course meal with wine, and after dinner entertainment.

University accommodation

Closing date for bookings

Cancellation and substitution policy

Cancellations made in writing on or before Friday, 8 August 2008 were eligible for a full refund minus a £50 cancellation charge. Cancellations made after Friday, 8 August 2008 did not receive a refund. Substitutions were allowable if made in writing (either by email or by faxing your request to +44 (0) 1865 484165) before Friday, 22 August 2008.

Conference packs and conference handbooks

All delegates who selected this option when booking, were posted a copy of the Conference Handbook and Research Proceedings ALT-C 2008, two weeks prior to the start of the conference. This then allowed enough time for you to plan which sessions you wanted to attend. Both documents were sent to the address provided at the time of booking.. We also provided delegates on arrival with both documents on a USB stick along with a conference programme, a delegate list, a guide to conference facilities and the exhibition, and local information on Leeds. If you didn't select the options, you will have received copies of both handbooks at time of registration.

NB. For those booking online between Friday, 15 August and Friday, 22 August, the above option was not available. You will have recieved copies of both handbooks at time of registration.

We also sent you, to the email address you provided, 'news alerts' to keep you informed. From mid-June 2008 onwards, we made regular updates to this page.
