Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

This 12-month course is open to Cambridge teaching staff with a minimum of three years' experience of teaching in higher education. Current and recent participants teach / support the learning of Cambridge students across the full range of disciplines; they include readers, senior lecturers, college teaching officers, librarians, educational technologists and research fellows.

You will develop enquiry-based approaches to engaging with educational challenges and contributing to improvements in the education of students at Cambridge and at tertiary level more broadly. In particular, you will:

  • develop your understanding of how students learn;
  • extend your repertoire of teaching, learning and assessment methods;
  • develop a cogent personal philosophy of education drawing on understanding, use and critical awareness of educational research methods and reflective practice.

 

To participate fully in the PGCTLHE, you should expect to dedicate the equivalent of 40 - 45 days over the course of the year to preparing for and participating in five day schools, developmental exercises organised with peers taking the programme, and preparing a 10-15,000-word portfolio.

The PGCTLHE is offered by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning. This Master's-level course is equivalent to 60 credits at FHEQ Level 7. Up to 20 places are available for 2019-20; please note that course is not open to PhD students. There is no course fee.

Read some thoughts from recent participants on Taking the PGCTLHE.

 

Applications are now closed.

Interviews will be held during the first week of June.
