Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


"All the talks I attended taught me things I didn't know and which I am glad to have learned"

"I found the sessions were very interesting and inspiring. It was great to hear from people from different fields"



Colleagues from across the collegiate University joined together last week at Churchill College for the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning's annual Teaching Forum. The Teaching Forum brings together people working in numerous different disciplines to learn about a range of different topics, network with colleagues, and share their ideas and perspectives on learning and teaching.

This year’s programme of speakers included presentations on defining learning gain in Higher Education, the flipped classroom, the Teaching Excellence Framework, getting more out of Moodle, exploring what excellence in teaching means in a research-intensive university, helping international graduate students write, the new A-level curriculum and what it might mean for Higher Education, and the ‘Bloomberg Breakfast’ initiative in the Judge Business School. Delegates commented that the programme offered "a  perfect balance between identifying broader challenges and opportunities in the future but also talking about some hands-on practical things we can go and try in the next academic year", and that the talks were all "excellent and perfectly delivered". One satisfied delegate commented "More of this please!"


If you were unable to attend the Teaching Forum this year, don’t worry. Resources from the event, including slides, posters and podcasts of some of the sessions, will be posted on CCTL’s website. You can also catch up with the Twitter conversation by following #CCTL2017.
