Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


The CCTL brings people together from across the collegiate university to think about and respond to the issues that matter most in teaching and learning at Cambridge. We encourage Cambridge educators to share their best ideas and learn from each other, and our events provide opportunities for staff to explore more board and wide-ranging topics.

If you are putting on an event or have an idea that you would like to see happening, please get in touch!


Cambridge Teaching Forum

The Cambridge Teaching Forum is a yearly event held in the Easter vacation, which aims to bring together staff across the University to discuss all aspects of education.


Annual Meeting for Directors of Teaching and Senior Tutors

The Annual Meeting for Directors of Teaching and Senior Tutors is held just before the start of the Michaelmas Term, and is open to members of staff who have been appointed as the Director of Teaching for their subject area or as a Senior Tutor.


Digital Advocates Network

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