Mmm, Looking at the Submission Process for CMALT it seems the next deadlines are :
1st October 2016
1st February 2017
1st June 2017
Given the fact that I have only just started pulling my stuff together I am probably realistically looking at a February submission ( not to mention the fact that I am supposed to be moving house this week so I kinda have my hands full ! )
Progress So Far …
- Ok, so I have had a good snoop around the portfolios that have been shared on the ALT Website. I found this really helpful and I think I have settled on using WordPress to use to collect my evidence together.
- I’ve set up a quick wordpress account and started populating some pages with the headings outlined in the CMALT guidelines ( as suggested by the ever helpful David Hopkins ). I have kept this private at the moment but hope that I will be brave enough to share it at some point either during my journey or if and when I get certified ( so to speak ) …
- In an attempt to try and document my progress I thought I would have a play with a new tool called Timetoast that I have recently come across. This allows you to create timelines so have set one up for my CMALT Submission. I’ve made it Public just in case it might help others !
Don’t worry about the time-frame of either meeting or missing the CMALT deadlines, make sure the portfolio, evidence, reflection, etc. represents you and your work. Only then submit it. Whilst it’s good to have a goal in mind I don’t think anyone should stress and push themselves to meet it if it ends up being detrimental to your work or health.
Saying that … come on, get on with it!! 😉
Haha good call thanks David 🙂
