Today I received an email with a new digital badge/sticker design that recognises the new Senior CMALT Award – YAY! Thanks to Thomas Palmer and the ALT team for their work on extending CMALT accreditation to three ‘levels’ to cater for a variety of experience and focus.
Joining the SOTEL Research Cluster
The SOTEL (Scholarship Of Technology Enhanced Learning) research clusters are designed to provide a hub for academics to build a community of researchers and a showcase of their scholarly research into their teaching practice. We welcome participants from any discipline context to join us and form associated research cluster groups at http://sotel.nz
We officially launched the SOTEL Research Cluster Group at the inaugural SOTEL Symposium on 15th February at AUT South Campus. We hope you will put the SOTEL Symposium in your annual event calendar!
To join the SOTEL Research cluster:
Next find the Research Cluster Group that you would like to join on the Groups page http://sotel.nz/groups/
and choose ‘Join Group’. Each group will have 1-2 Admins/Moderators who can manage and modify the group settings.
We aim to hold monthly online chats and webinars for the SOTEL research cluster groups, and will be running the CMALT cMOOC and MOSOMELT cMOOC again soon in 2018 if you are interested in participating.
Note if you are planning on submitting your CMALT portfolio the next submission date for CMALT Portfolio accreditation is 1 June 2018. The CMALT cMOOC is designed to create a supportive community of people exploring and building their CMALT eportfolios. http://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com
The MOSOMELT cMOOC is designed for participants to explore the potential of mobile social media in higher education http://mosomelt.wordpress.com
