Research in Learning Technology, the Journal of the Association for Learning Technology - News update
In what has been a busy year, the journal has revised its aims and scope to reflect ALT’s reach across policy and practice in the use of technology in learning and teaching in industry and in all sectors of education. The revised aims can be found at http://tinyurl.com/26raclq.
From Volume 19(1) (2011), the journal will be renamed Research in Learning Technology, the Journal of the Association for Learning Technology. We have also recruited new members to the Editorial Board (who will join existing members) to strengthen the Board, increase its international representation, and support the extended scope.

18(3) is a Special Issue devoted to The Transformational Impact of Learning Technology, edited by a distinguished and international team of editors: Professor John Bourne (The Sloan Consortium, USA), Professor Martin Hall (University of Salford, UK), and Professor Mike Keppell (Charles Sturt University, Australia). This issue will be jointly published with the Sloan Consortium's Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks and ascilite's Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET). Sloan-C and ascilite will republish the contents in the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology and the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks after the original content has been published in Research in Learning Technology in December of this year, online and in print. A voucher code will be provided for the members of ascilite and The Sloan Consortium to access the full contents of ALT-J volume 18, issue 3, from its publication date
Judging by the interest it evoked amongst the Editorial Board, the Call for Papers for Special Issue 19(3) Theory in Learning Technology is likely to attract a good array of submissions and be attractive to readers who are trying to make sense of how we use and research Learning Technology.
