Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

Registration is now open for a one-day forum co-designed by the student researchers participating in Cycle 4 of the APP Participatory Action Research Project:

"The Black awarding gap and decolonisation at Cambridge: An open forum about the data, student experiences and ways forward"

The forum is open to all Cambridge students and staff, regardless of whether you are actively involved in initiatives related to awarding gaps and/or decolonisation or not.

  • Date: Tuesday 28 February
  • Time: 10am-4pm
  • Venue: Student Services Centre

A call for papers is currently open and the full programme will be released in due course; please see the Black Advisory Hub for more details. Topics of discussion might include, for example: Black awarding gaps at Cambridge; unconscious bias in assessment and marking; decolonisation of teaching, learning and curricula; supporting students' transition into Cambridge; and more.

Cambridge is one of the world's leading higher education institutions, yet Black students studying here are less likely to be awarded a First or Good Honours degree than their White peers (after controlling for variables such as socioeconomic background or previous education). The University has committed to eliminating these inequitable degree outcomes.
