I am taking part in a pilot offered by the Association for Learning Technology that aims to support people in obtaining Certified Membership, or CMALT. In order to obtain CMALT, you have to reflect upon your experience to date and how it relates to the dimensions set out within the frameworks of CMALT. These dimensions, in many ways, reflect, compliment and/or match up with those of the HEA.
I have just submitted my portfolio for review and I am happy to say that I’ve found it a generally rewarding experience as it’s allowed me to look back on my past experiences and see how they relate and connect with one another up until now. It’s also allowed me to see how I’ve developed as an educator over time.
The best part of it, of course, is submitting it!
