Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education

CMALT Australasia

CMALT Australasia is a certified membership scheme offered in partnership with the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) UK. The scheme is a form of professional accreditation which enables people whose work involves learning technology to have their experience and capabilities certified by peers, and to demonstrate that they are taking a committed approach to their professional development.

As a certified member of ALT you can increase the impact of your professional record or CV and use “CMALT” as post-nominal letters.  The basis of the accreditation process is a portfolio which contains both evidence and reflection in relation to a number of key criteria.

CMALT certification means you obtain professional recognition and attain Certified Membership for your experience and capability in the field of learning technology.

CMALT Support Group

Mark Northover, ASCILITE Executive and CMALT Chairperson speaking on CMALT at the 2016 ASCILITE conference.

If you are planning to prepare a CMALT portfolio or you’ve been thinking about it but don’t quite know where to begin, then the CMALT Support Group is a good place to start.  The CMALT support group will be conducting regular webinars commencing in June to offer practical advice and support from some of our current Australasian CMALT holders. The plan is to offer these sessions monthly during which draft portfolios (or parts of portfolios) will be offered advice from one of our local CMALT holders in an effort to assist participants to move closer to completion.

To join this group you must be a current member of ASCILITE, though not necessarily yet registered with CMALT.

Please complete this simple sign-up form by 15 May 2017 if you are interested in joining. Alternatively, if you have any questions about joining the support group, email Mark Northover, ASCILITE Executive and CMALT Chairperson.
