Well this is a long time in the making 🙂 I’ve previously blogged about developing a community of practitioners at UCS who have a CMALT accreditation. The intention is to develop more capacity and buzz across the institution. This recent idea (!!) is outlined at: https://andyramsden.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/developing-staff-capacity-via-cmalt/
We (the Elevate Team) are going to dedicate a three day sprint to enable us to work up our portfolios, in a creative, collaborative environment. The expected outcome is we’ll have a nearly complete version (short of a few supporting statements) which will be further developed on an individual basis for submission around October.
The proposed sprint structure is as follows:
- Coffee: Introduction to CMALT. What it is, the process, and why it’s important within our context?
- Reading – CMALT Area (https://www.alt.ac.uk/get-involved/certified-membership), Prospectus, Examples
- Day 1: Meet up (9.30 to 10.00), review the good and bad examples, mind maps of sections with our evidence, targets for the day
- Day 2: Meet up (9.30 to 10.00), what have achieved, what want to achieve? Meet up (3.30 to 4.00) what did achieve, what are the stumbling blocks
- Day 3: Meet up (9.30 to 10.00), how are we doing? What else do we need? Meet up (3.30 to 4.00) closure: where next
At the end of the process, I’ll blog about how it went, did we achieve the overall objective of developing our CMALT portfolios to a standard which will require dotting some i’s, and crossing some t’s.
