How you can get involved #altc beyond ocTEL

June 26, 2014 in CMALT, Commentary, Course Information

With much of the activity across the course winding down following the official last day of the course last Friday, here are some ideas to help you continue your active involvedment in our community post-ocTEL:

On Twitter and other social media, we, @A_L_T, use #altc as our main hashtag, so instead of following #ocTEL look out for tweets #altc to keep up to date with news, research and other developments. As well as continuing the conversation on social media, why not join ALT as a member, see https://www.alt.ac.uk/get-involved/membership for details.

While ocTEL is winding down, preparations fo our annual conference, #altc, from 1-3 September at the University of Warwick, UK, are well underway. Early Bird registration is now open https://www.alt.ac.uk/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=93 .

ocTEL is only one way in which we work to support professional development in Learning Technology. If you or a group of you want to gain professional recognition in Learning Technology, build on what you have done in ocTEL with our accreditation scheme, CMALT. See  https://www.alt.ac.uk/get-involved/certified-membership for further information and how to register.

You can also read and contribute to our newsletter http://newsletter.alt.ac.uk/ or watch or listen to ocTEL sessions or other videos on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/ClipsFromALT .

  1. Dear Maren

    “Lurkers” vs “Silent participants”?

    Here are a few other terms that could be used:

    vicarious learners?
    silent participants?
    viewer?
    Non-public user?
    legitimate peripheral participator?
    eyeballers?
    virtual participant?
    marginal participant?
    onlooker?
    passive observer?
    cognitive apprentices?
    potential member?
    proximate member?
    sympathiser?
    supporter?
    listener?
    tacit member?

    See Let’s get more positive about the term ‘lurker’

    Which term best reflects the degree/ style/ of learning? If you read a book, but never talk about it, have you learned any less?

    Best wishes
