Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

We support educators, encourage innovation and provide a focus for enhancing education at Cambridge.

CCTL has teams specialising in educational development and in researcher development. The focus of this website is on our educational development work; you can find out more about our researcher development work on the Researcher Development website.

Our educational development work aims to provide a sustained focus on complex educational priorities, help develop an evidence base for both designing and evaluating enhancement activities, and engage with departments and colleges to identify opportunities to enhance teaching, learning and assessment. Finally, we aim to support the professional education and development of those who teach / support the learning of Cambridge students.

 

Our particular priorities and areas of focus over 2019-2025 are to:

  • encourage and facilitate the adoption of inclusive curricula and practices
  • encourage and facilitate more diverse forms of assessment and educationally effective feedback
  • enhance educational development support for supervision of postgraduate students
  • work with students and staff to improve opportunities for Cambridge students to develop academic and personal skills
  • help to support, recognise and reward excellence in teaching / supporting learning
