Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


CCTL has developed a portfolio of projects that investigate educational practices across the collegiate University. We also support the further development of pedagogic research that will encourage innovation, provide an evidence-base for further teaching and learning enhancement, and contribute to the recognition of Cambridge's educational excellence.

To that end, CCTL engages with networks of teaching and professional staff across the University who are particularly interested in higher education research and the scholarship of teaching and learning. With these networks, we develop projects and collaboratively investigate institutional priorities.

We have established the Cambridge Higher Education Studies Ethics Review Committee (CHESREC) in order to provide a central point to encourage and support robust, ethical and inclusive practices for researching with and about university students and staff.
