Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


Dr Thomas Krieg, a Principal Investigator in the Department of Medicine, used Erasmus+ funding for a teaching exchange with Dr Fabio di  Lisa at the Università degli Studi di Padova (University of Padua). Dr Krieg taught part of an undergraduate course in Pharmacy at Padua while Dr di Lisa gave a postgraduate seminar at Cambridge. For Dr Krieg, teaching in Padua and working with the students there, some of whom have since chosen to pursue research at Cambridge, were enjoyable and advantageous. Another major benefit of this exchange was the opportunity it offered to strengthen his professional relationship with Dr di Lisa. He and Dr di Lisa have gone on to establish a collaborative research project for which they now hold two joint grants. Dr Krieg says Erasmus+ is a user-friendly scheme, light on bureaucracy, whose benefits for academics ‘go way beyond teaching’.
