Feedback from the 2019 Cambridge Teaching Forum

"I find it refreshing that the panel discussions are not afraid to take on challenging issues."

"I particularly enjoyed the parallel sessions, because they discussed the issues in real depth, with concrete material to illustrate the concepts they were exploring."
