#SCMALT & SOTEL Overview from @MarenDeepwell at #ALTC

Although I couldn’t be at the #ALTC Conference in Manchester this year, it was great to get a shout-out from @MarenDeepwell in her keynote address while overviewing the impact of research in technology enhanced learning (or the Scholarship of Technology Enhanced Learning, SOTEL) as one of the distinctives of Senior CMALT (SCMALT).

It was also great to see mentions of many of my international colleagues as well such as @catherinecronin
