Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

In the spring of 2019 applications were received for the Teaching, Learning and Innovation Fund awards. We were delighted by the enthusiastic response, with 17 applications received across the University's six Schools.

 

Five* grants were awarded and our congratulations are extended to all the winners:

Project Lead Project Description
Mark Andrews & Abigail Crowther, Judge Business School Using immersive technologies to challenge learner perceptions and aid the development of problem-solving behaviours
Dr Sonja Dunbar, Department of Plant Sciences Redesigning IB NST practicals to develop experimental design skills with students as partners
Dr Annette Mahon, Lucy Cavendish College Exploring the experience of MPhil students at Cambridge: insights for improving student support
Ronak Shah, Keerthi Senthil & Dr Elizabeth Fistein, School of Clinical Medicine Creating and implementing an e-learning module for Clinical School students on "Digital Hygiene" for social media
Dr Flavio Toxvaerd, Faculty of Economics Understanding economic models through interactive graphs: a platform for visualisation and independent student experimentation using Mathematica

 

We are excited to see how each of the projects develop, and hope to bring further updates throughout the year, at Digital Advocates Network events, the Cambridge Teaching Forum, and other CCTL events. All projects will take place throughout the 2019-20 academic year and will report back to the Digital Teaching & Learning Sub-committee in Michaelmas Term 2020.

Further information about the TLIF for 2019-21 will be provided in due course. For enquiries please contact tlif@admin.cam.ac.uk.

 


*A further grant has been tentatively agreed, subject to agreement on copyright and licensing issues; we hope to announce this in due course.
