Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

‘The benefits go way beyond teaching’ - Dr Thomas Krieg, Principal Investigator in the  Department of Medicine, who took part in a teaching exchange with a fellow researcher in Padua

The Erasmus+ programme ‘works very well’ -  Javier Carretero González, postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemistry, who taught a course in Materials Science at the international summer school of the Universidade da Coruña

The Erasmus+ programme, administered by the International Student Team, offers funding opportunities for staff going abroad to a European partner institution for a period of teaching or training. Funding is provided as a contribution towards travel and subsistence.  Not only does the scheme allow staff to enhance their teaching experience and expertise, it also offers valuable opportunities for researchers to develop their connections with international colleagues through participating in a teaching exchange at a host institution.

Any staff member with a contract of employment with the University of Cambridge is eligible to apply (including College Teaching Officers). Placements should be between 2 days and 2 months long (excluding travel time) and for teaching placements there is a minimum requirement of 8 hours teaching per week or part of the week.

Further information, including how to apply and institutions with which Cambridge already has partnership agreements, can be found on the International Students Team’s website.
