Register for the teaching Forum 2018

Cambridge’s annual Teaching Forum provides a stimulating environment for staff to learn about innovative approaches to higher education in Cambridge and to meet colleagues and share ideas.  We also reflect on some of the hot topics in higher education in Cambridge, nationally and internationally.

The Teaching Forum is open to everyone who teaches or supports students’ learning in University institutions and Colleges.  This year’s programme includes

  • panel discussions, chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, Prof. Graham Virgo: inclusive teaching and learning at Cambridge; assessment
  • short, parallel sessions on topics including: using technology to improve engagement in lectures; what students appreciate about teaching and their education at Cambridge; and innovations in supporting transition to undergraduate and Master’s-level study.

Confirmed speakers include

  • The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Stephen Toope
  • Prof. Jan Vermunt (Faculty of Education): Measuring Learning Gains across Disciplines in Higher Education
  • Martha Krish (CUSU Education Officer): What do students want? Perspectives from the Student-led Teaching Awards on ‘good teaching’
  • Dr Hugh Hunt (Department of Engineering): Using technologies to improve engagement in lectures
  • Helen Murphey (Faculty of English Library): Developing an online tool to support transition to undergraduate and Master’s study
