Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

The Teaching Associates' Programme (TAP) is designed for Cambridge early-career academics and researchers (including postdoctoral researchers, early-career college lecturers, and PhD students after the first year of doctoral study) who teach Cambridge students.

The programme includes assignments which enable participants to explore different aspects of their own teaching practice, as well as to learn from other participants, TAP tutors, and through introductions to academic literature on teaching and learning in higher education. Consequently, if you are interested in applying for TAP, you must have:

  • at least 20 hours’ experience of teaching in higher education before the Teaching Associates’ Programme begins and at least 40 hours’ experience of teaching in higher education in total by the end of the programme
  • sufficient teaching commitments in Cambridge during the programme to enable you to undertake teaching observations and a teaching-related assignment
  • motivation and time to undertake  some independent study, including guided reading, preparation of assignments and practical exercises, including teaching observations and student feedback exercises
  • a reasonable expectation that you will be able to attend all the compulsory elements of the programme (see course description).

 

The application process will be managed via a Moodle module. This Moodle module holds all the information you need to know to decide if TAP is the right programme for you and allows you to submit your completed application form.

 

Applications are now closed for TAP 2018-19; please check this page in 2019 for details of how to apply for 2019-20.

 

Successful applicants will usually be contacted by Friday 21 September 2018.
