Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


The Digital Advocates Network was created in the spring of 2018, to better support bottom-up initiatives to enhance teaching, learning and assessment across the collegiate University.

The Network has the following goals:

  • To gather information about the types of technologies that will best support disciplines in meeting teaching and learning aims;
  • To gather and share information about technology already in use;
  • To provide feedback to the University about pilot programmes or strategic initiatives that can help to meet teaching and learning goals;
  • To create a support network and to propagate innovation and good practice.

Events specifically for Network members are held periodically, but immediate opportunities for networking and information-sharing are provided through the University's Yammer group for Teaching, Learning & Assessment in 2020-21.


Next event

No events are currently planned in the wake of the transition to remote teaching & learning, as we consider how the Network can integrate with the new Technology-Enabled Learning Service. Staff interested in finding support for particular issues are encouraged to join the Yammer group as above, visit the Teaching in 2020-21 section of this website or contact the Technology-Enabled Learning Service. We will provide updates here as soon as we know more.
