Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

 

The University has launched a new Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL) Service, to assist staff in the design and delivery of excellent teaching and learning. The Service will, in the first instance, focus on supporting staff in the transition to greater blended and remote teaching necessitated by the pandemic; in the longer-term we will work to support the delivery of residential degree programmes and course development.

 

The TEL Service can help with:

  • Effective use of particular technologies; see also our Introductions to specific educational technologies
  • Transitioning teaching to blended delivery, including ways to engage students remotely
  • Structuring online and asychronous content for maximum effect
  • Sharing and promoting good practice in remote and blended teaching and learning
  • Developing a community of practice around use of technology to support education

The TEL Service will not provide assistance with the creation or development of wholly online courses (outside of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic), or in procuring and developing new technologies. However, if you have heard of a colleague using a new tool and wish to determine if it is suitable, please do feel free to approach the team to discuss further.

The team will be liaising with all six Schools to discuss how we can best support you, but we welcome direct contact from individuals, departments or institutions.

 

Access our resources

Webinars

The TEL Service offers weekly webinars to support staff in in developing and delivering blended learning throughout the academic year. Most topics are run twice, and a recording provided. Visit our webinar page (Raven-protected) for more information.

Learning Design

Staff can access our Learning Design Toolkit (Raven-protected), which provides a guided approach to developing an effective blended curriculum. The Toolkit can be used for both small- and large-scale course or module review, by individuals or as part of a wider course-level curriculum development.

Learning Scenarios

Our Learning Scenarios Moodle pages (Raven-protected) provide an activity-focused approach to identifying the best blended design for your teaching. Framed around a variety of scenarios, such as lectures, supervisions, and practicals, we present an overview of digital pedagogy in that area, along with Cambridge-based practice, tools and other resources.
