CPD Activity title: ALT-C 2011
|| Start: 6th September 2011
End: 8th September 2011
|| Attendance at ALT-C 2011, 'Thriving in a colder and more challenging climate' and chairing sessions including two meetings, one workshop and a short paper session.
|| Attendance at this event has been of benefit to service users in the following way:
- I disseminated key highlights in the form of two blog posts ('So... about ALT-C 2011' and 'ALT-C 2011 - Wordled...') and presented these at the team meeting of the learning technologists at the University of Sheffield
- Some of the ideas on assessment and working as a consortium have been taken on board and directly fed into practice as I have developed a collaboration framework for the support of learning technologies at the University.
- I've put in place a process for disseminating conference activities has now been put in place so that everyone is able to share in the outcomes of conferences such as ALT-C
- I have been able to make further connections with other learning technologists across the UK and this will be of benefit in the future.
|How it meets standards
|| The above meets standard 2 in that there was a mix of learning activities - attendance at a workshop on mobile devices to talks on the use of photo marathons for learning and the one laptop per child project.
It meets standard 3 in that is has contributed to the quality of practice by improving the future dissemination of conference attendance across the team
It meets standard 4 in that it benefits the members of my team by the dissemination of key points and highlights.
