Photo from ALT-C 2015ALT-C is the annual conference of the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), providing an international platform for learning technology research, practice and policy work from across all educational sectors.The 2016 conference will run from 6th-8th September at the University of Warwick under the umbrella title Connect, Collaborate, Create. It will be chaired by Professor Nicola Whitton, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Alex Moseley, University of Leicester.

The call for proposals has been published, and abstracts are invited to address the following themes:

  • Connecting data and analytics to enhance learning and teaching: exploring possibilities and measuring impact on learner success;
  • Collaboration and innovation in the open: taking risks, sharing lessons and the importance of open educational practice;
  • Creating new learning, teaching and assessment opportunities: play, experiment, discover, embed Learning Technology to enhance learner experience.

There is also a ‘wildcard’ theme ‘Learning technology is everywhere’ under which you are free to contribute any aspect of your research, practice or policy work.

Members of Academic IT attend ALT-C every year, and more often than not we present as well (in 2015, one of us was even a co-chair). We are already working on at least one proposal for this year, and we invite any member of staff or research student who also has an idea to consider submitting a proposal of their own. Send an email to if you’d like to discuss it with us.

The closing date for submissions is Monday 21st March.
