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 Centre for Learning And Teaching at Auckland University of Technology have developed 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 2019 CMALT cMOOC starts 25th February 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.
There will be a YouTube Livestream as an intro for anyone interested in finding out more about the cMOOC 10:30am 22nd February (New Zealand time) https://youtu.be/mmEFeLUrMEM
We use a customised Moodle Discussion Forum, Twitter, and WordPress to facilitate the cMOOC.
The first step in participating is the Signup form on WordPress at https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com/contact/ after which you will receive a login to the Community Forum at https://community.sotel.nz/course/view.php?id=3

The CMALT cMOOC aims to mentor and support applications for CMALT accreditation. CMALT is the Certified Member of the Association of Learning Technologies (available to either ALT or ASCILITE members https://www.alt.ac.uk/certified-membership) and recognises experience and expertise in the use of technologies for learning. This is available to academic and allied staff who are interested in or have successfully integrated the use of learning technologies in the course(s) they teach. We have developed the CMALT cMOOC (https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com) as a 7-week online support programme/network, and the next iteration of this starts on September 24 – signup at https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com/contact/
We have also developed the SoTEL NZ Research Cluster as a support network and the SoTEL NZ Symposium as a showcase and networking event for groups of educators exploring the scholarship of technology enhanced learning: https://sotel.nz
The research cluster is open to new groups beyond NZ, and the 2019 Symposium call for participation is now open.
