The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) today published its response to
the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE)ís proposals for the
new Research Excellence Framework (REF), urging HEFCE to adopt clear
guidelines to ensure that interdisciplinary fields such as learning technology
are properly judged in the REF.
ALTís response was submitted on 10 December. For a full copy of the
submission, please go to http://repository.alt.ac.uk/683/.
