Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

Directors of Teaching Event 2016 

The theme for the 2016 Directors of Teaching meeting was ‘examination and assessment in a research-intensive university’. Delegates at the meeting were updated on policy and procedural changes, including the TEF, the Examination Review, a pilot for computer-based exams, alternative modes of assessment, extension to deadline requests and an upcoming consultation on penalties for rubric infringement. They  debated the meaning of the phrase ‘research-led teaching’ and heard presentations from Professor Mary Beard, Faculty of Classics, and Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessement. Copies of their talks can be accessed below.
