ALT Trustee Elections 2022 – My statement

The Association for Learning Technology is electing two trustees to its Board this year and I’ve put my name forward. ALT is an important organisation for those working in a range of educational sectors and professions, and for me has been a vital network in my career. I am most grateful for the support of my two nominators. You can view my statement below and statements from all the candidates on the voting page as well as via the link above. ALT Members will have received an email with a personal link.

Statement

ALT and the ALT Community have played a significant part in shaping who I am as a professional in digital education. As a Trustee, I hope to support ALT to remain community-focused, provide leadership in our sector, drive critical engagement with research and ultimately enable us to enhance education for all across FE, HE and professional learning.

I have 15 years experience as a learning technologist, with roles in enhancement, leadership and learning design. As a long standing CMALT assessor and a SCMALT holder, I’m a passionate believer in supporting colleagues through development and reflection in an exciting, varied profession. I would like to support early career and established professionals across a range of positions and sectors and ensure ALT remains applicable to a broad community.

My professional experience comes from working in higher education and for a national teacher professional development non-profit organisation. Through this I have been able to bridge sectors and see the value of learning technologies from school education through to professional learning. Now, in my current role as Head of Online Learning at the University of Leeds, I am leading the growth of fully online degrees and short courses with a focus on the lifelong role of digital education. I hope to bring my understanding of different contexts and the positive impact of learning technology for educators and learners, along with my commitment to the CMALT programme and championing the diversity within our ALT Community, by contributing further to ALT as a Trustee.
