Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

The University has launched its new Digital Strategy for Education, which aims to provide a framework for the introduction of technology that supports teaching and learning.  Although face-to-face teaching such as lectures, supervisions and small-group teaching will remain at the heart of a Cambridge education, the University strongly believes that there is a key role for technology that enhances or supports these core activities.  

The Strategy is pedagogically-led, and will be overseen by the Digital Teaching & Learning Sub-committee, which reports to both the General Board's Education Committee and the Information Services Committee.  The Strategy focuses on activities between 2016-2020, and was developed collaboratively between the General Board’s Education Committee, University Information Services, the Digital Teaching & Learning Sub-committee, the Information Services Committee, and the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.  

Through the Strategy, the University will seek to achieve five strategic goals: 

  1. to build and maintain a shared understanding of the needs and priorities of the collegiate University;
  2. to support students throughout the learning cycle;
  3. to ensure quality and equity of the student experience;
  4. to provide maximum effectiveness and efficiency of resource for students, staff, and collegiate University administration;
  5. to enable and propagate innovation.

The full text of the Digital Strategy for Education can be accessed from the Digital Teaching & Learning Sub-committee's webpages

Read more about two pilot projects running during 2016-17, on Lecture Capture and on Computer-based examinations.  Updates on these projects will also be posted on the CCTL Projects webpages.
