Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

Supporting Cambridge education in 2020-21

This year poses some distinctive challenges, as we return to residential education which combines online and in-person teaching. CCTL's support is based on an understanding of education as a process which is both academic and social. You'll find guides, information and ways to stay involved on our Teaching in 2020-21 pages.

All CCTL programmes, workshops and events are expected to be held online during 2020-21. We'll largely be working from home. As ever, if you have questions or would like to share ideas and practices, please get in touch.

You can also join the Cambridge conversation about remote teaching, and stay informed about upcoming events by subscribing to our newsletter.
