Hello, I’m Debbie Baff, welcome to my CMALT Portfolio.
This site is a reflective portfolio outlining my professional practice for submission under the CMALT Accreditation Framework demonstrating my knowledge and experience in the four core areas and subsections of the CMALT Framework.
|Core Area 1||Operational Issues|
a) An understanding of the constraints and benefits of different technologies
b) Technical knowledge and ability in the use of Learning Technology
c) Supporting the deployment of learning technologies
|Core Area 2||Teaching, learning and assessment processes|
a) An understanding of teaching, learning and/or assessment processes
b) An understanding of your target learners
|Core Area 3||The Wider Context|
a) Understanding and engaging with legislation
b) Second legislative area, or understanding and engaging with policies and standards
|Core Area 4||Communication and Working with Others|
|Specialist Area||Social Support in Social Network Sites|
CMALT Principles and Values
It also demonstrates a commitment to the core principles and values that underlie CMALT. The CMALT framework is underpinned by four main principles and values as shown in the lovely graphic below by Bryan M Mathers .
In order to demonstrate my commitment these core principles and values I have adopted an approach that I have seen in other CMALT portfolios that are available on the ALT open register. You will see therefore that I have specifically referenced the core principles and values within the text as follows :
|Core Principles & Ethics||Key|
|A commitment to exploring and understanding the interplay between technology and learning||CP1|
|A commitment to keep up to date with new technologies||CP2|
|An empathy with and willingness to learn from colleagues from different backgrounds and specialisms||CP3|
|A commitment to communicate and disseminate effective practice||CP4|
I have reflected and analysed the work that I have described within each of the sections. I have found the skills guides from Hull university I hope therefore that this will highlight what I thought went well, what I could learn from and how I would approach things in the future
I have included relevant evidence within each of the sections as appropriate.
