I know we all probably have a bit of election fatigue just now. However outside the crazy world of politics, in the slightly less crazy world of learning technology, there is one election that is worth your consideration and vote – the ALT Trustee elections.
There are three fantastic nominees this year – Bella Abrams, Lorna Campbell and Chris Rowell. You can read their statements here, they all bring a tremendous range of experience and expertise. But they need your votes. Being a membership organisation, ALT relies on members to support and guide its direction. In these afore mentioned crazy times, the need for a strong, non commercial, voice for supporting the effective use of technology for learning and teaching is more important than ever. So if you are a member of ALT make sure you vote, this year for the first time we’re using an electronic voting system. And if you’re not a member, why not think about joining? I know from experience that receiving peer support and validation from being voted in as a Trustee of ALT makes the role even more special. The results of the election will be announced at this year’s ALT conference.
