Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on education, staff and students at Cambridge.

We are working to continue supporting teaching staff during this time, with an enhanced focus on transitioning to online teaching in the immediate future. We are working with academic and professional services colleagues to develop guidance: initially, this will focus on on some of the pressing, fundamental questions.

We will also be looking to address the more medium- and long-term impacts of necessary changes to educational practices at Cambridge in future.

Please keep an eye on our home page for further developments.


Cambridge is renowned for the quality of our students' education and the creativity and commitment of our staff. The new Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning works with staff to enrich educational practice; funds innovation and encourages the exchange of ideas and methods; and is a focus for enhancement initiatives within the Collegiate University, nationally and internationally.
