This course is designed for Cambridge staff and takes an enquiry-based approach to exploring challenges in teaching and learning in higher education in Cambridge and beyond, as identified by its participants. The course is delivered in collaboration between the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education and the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.




You will submit three 3,000-word assignments for formative assessment, with a 1,000-word reflective account of your learning during the programme. You will receive formative feedback from your tutor and will be supported in developing and acting on collegial formative feedback through your peer-learning community. The course is summatively assessed through a 10,000-word portfolio which you will develop from your formatively assessed drafts and which you will submit by the final deadline of 28 September 2018. 

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. If your first language is not English, please refer to our Information for Applicants pages for further guidance.
