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. Participants teach or support the learning of Cambridge students across the full range of disciplines, including readers, senior lecturers, college teaching officers, librarians, educational technologists and research fellows. This enables us to draw on diverse perspectives and experiences.

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.

 

Applications for 2021-22 are now closed

Thank you to everybody who applied. More course details can be found on the Institute for Continuing Education's course page.

 

Recent participants said:

"The opportunity for group discussion has been invaluable and greatly widened my appreciation for different viewpoints and the challenges of teaching in different contexts."

"I think I have learned as much from the way that you have delivered the programme as I have from the breadth of authors and frameworks that you've shared with us."

"Overall this has been a brilliant course and an excellent opportunity to explore the educational literature and how this impacts our own teaching. The course has been excellently structured and planned to cater for teachers with a wide range of backgrounds and levels of experience."

Participating fully in the PGCTLHE involves preparing for and participating in five day schools, developmental exercises organised with peers taking the programme, and preparing a 10-15,000-word portfolio. You are likely to dedicate between 30 and 40 days over the course of the year; the schedule is structured flexibly to accommodate the commitments of participants.

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 2021-22; please note that the course is not open to PhD students. There is no course fee.
