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.


2020 CMALT cMOOC, September 2020

Are you interested in gaining international accreditation for your experience and expertise in integrating technology in teaching and learning? The Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT) provides peer reviewed recognition aligned with the UK higher education professional standards framework. The Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher education at the University of Melbourne are hosting a cMOOC (connectivist Massive Open Online Course) to support academics and allied staff develop portfolios for CMALT accreditation, and facilitate an experience of participating in a global network of higher education professionals.

The 2020 CMALT cMOOC starts 14th September and will run for 7 weeks. The cMOOC is completely free and is aimed at participants sharing experiences as they explore developing CMALT eportfolios, and building their professional academic online profiles.

The 2020 iteration of the #CMALTcMOOC launches with an introductory webinar on 14 September 9:30am AEST (Australia time),  14 September 11:30am (NZ time) and 13 September 10:30pm (UK time).  Join us over 7 weeks as we explore the elements of a CMALT ePortfolio within an international support network.

You will be emailed a weekly webinar link after you sign-up.
