Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

The CCTL contributes to fostering an environment in which both staff and students are recognised and rewarded for their contributions to education at the Collegiate University. Our new student award celebrates the key role that students play in supporting their peers to the benefit of the University as a whole, and sits alongside the Pilkington Prize and CUSU's Student-Led Teaching Awards recognising excellence in teaching.

 

The Pilkington Prize

The Pilkington Prize awards were inaugurated in 1994 by Sir Alastair Pilkington, who believed passionately that the quality of teaching was a crucial part of the University's ability to continue to attract undergraduates of the highest calibre. Twelve prizes are awarded each year to individuals who make a substanital contribution to the teaching of a Department, a Faculty or the University.

 

Student-Led Teaching Awards

The Student-Led Teaching Awards, coordinated by the Cambridge University Students' Union, reward outstanding teaching and student support and are led entirely by students. They represent a unique opportunity for students not only to recognise exceptional contributions by individual staff members, but also to highlight the kinds of teaching and support that students value.

 

Outstanding Student Contribution to Education Award

This new award has been established by the Centre for Teaching and Learning to recognise the contribution that students make to enhancing educational practices at the University. It is an opportunity for staff and students to show our appreciation of and celebrate our students' efforts to improve the learning experiences of their peers.
