About the community

If you are a new learning technologist, exploring educational technology roles in colleges, universities, and professional education, or wanting to develop yourself as a learning technologist and your career in learning technology, this group is for you.

We are an inclusive and accessible group driven by members, to nurture your professional development and practice as early-career learning technologists.

There are no webinars, our community is purely conversational in developing knowledge and skills, sharing on-the-job experiences, and seeking advice, collaboration or study support. View it as peer mentoring and coaching on the side - we have each other.

We encourage you to share openly so that others can benefit from responses. Be reassured that this is a safe space, pro-actively facilitated by three experienced learning technologists.

We refer to ‘learning technologist’ as those who support learning and teaching through the appropriate use of digital tools. It can encompass a wide range of support, professional services and leadership roles in education and professional learning.
