This practical programme is only for those who are scheduled to begin supervising in the next few months; it is not for those who - at this point - have a general interest in learning more about supervisions but have not arranged to start supervising.

This workshop is the second component of a three-part programme, which is designed to be completed in the following order:

1. A self-paced online module containing information on the Cambridge supervision system and introducing the principles and practices of effective teaching and learning, which must be completed before attending this workshop.
2. This in-person workshop that incorporates personal reflection on teaching practice, design of learning activities, discussion of real teaching scenarios, a chance to discuss and ask questions and access to practical information about organising and carrying out your supervisions.
3. An optional follow-up session for those who wish to explore further after gaining some supervision experience.

Please note that everyone new to supervising undergraduates at Cambridge must complete this course: both the online module and the workshop (or equivalent face-to-face training provided by your Department or Faculty).

Bookings for all workshops will close two days before the workshop to give you time to complete the online module ahead of the workshop.

Diversifying Assessment Forum 2024 new [Places] 14:00 - 16:30 Student Services Centre, Exams Hall, Room AG03c


This annual Forum will be chaired by Professor Bhaskar Vira, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and is coordinated by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.

A panel of Cambridge staff and students will share their perspectives, and Professor Philip Dawson (Deakin University, Australia) will discuss the latest approaches to AI and Assessment.

The Forum will be of interest to those engaged in activities related to assessment across the collegiate university. It provides a venue to explore opportunities and processes relevant to current assessment practices, particularly in light of the University's commitments to diversifying assessment and to eliminating awarding gaps experienced by students who are disadvantaged by high-stakes summative exams.

Further details, including the full programme of speakers, will be posted on the CCTL website in due course.
