Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


We have provided guides to a variety of educational technologies, including those supported by the University. You can access these via links in the menu bar.

When selecting any educational technology, it is essential to ensure that the teaching is accessible and inclusive for all; this is discussed throughout our guides to teaching in 2020-21.

The Disability Resource Centre have also provided guidance for teaching online if you are working with students with specific disabilities: working with disabled students.
