Easter Term 2020 required rapid adaptation across every aspect of Cambridge life. It also showed the adaptability of an education with small-scale intensive interaction between students and educators at its heart, within communities both academic and social.

We know that teaching online isn't simply a matter of 'converting' face-to-face teaching. Our guides include succinct introductions to flexible and inclusive practices, combining practical educational and technological guidance. You'll also find further detail and examples under introductions to specific technologies, and information on University policies.

We encourage you to join the Teaching, Learning & Assessment in 2020-21 Discussion Group on Yammer, where you can engage with colleagues sharing questions, ideas and tools. It's easy to set up an account using your Cambridge email address. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed.

The updates page details any major changes so that you can easily identify new information.
