Weeks 13-24


The second twelve weeks of the MOSOMELT cMOOC focus upon applying this expertise to the participants own pedagogical practice using CMALT accreditation as a framework for peer review of critical reflection upon the exploration of new pedagogical practice enabled by mobile social media.

Over these next few weeks we aim to help you in the development of your own CMALT portfolio. Each week we explore one of the core sections/elements of a CMALT portfolio. The content of a CMALT portfolio should include several sections that each includes a description of what the participant has done, recent evidence to support this, and reflection upon what was learnt, however only the four core areas are assessed:

  • A contextual statement: a concise biography and professional goals
  • Core area 1: Operational Issues – the constraints and benefits, technical knowledge, and deployment of learning technologies.
  • Core area 2: Learning, teaching and assessment – evidence of learning design, and supporting learner needs.
  • Core area 3: Wider context – understanding legislation, policies and standards.
  • Communication and working with others.
  • Core area 4: A specialist option – demonstrating specialisation within your own context.
  • Future plans
  • Confirmation

The CMALT portfolio can take a range of digital formats including: A Word document; A Google Site; An e-portfolio; and a podcast or vodcast.
