The University's Learning and Teaching Strategy sets out University-wide priorities in teaching and learning:

Learning and Teaching Strategy, 2015-18 (updated October 2017)

The General Board has overall responsibility for oversight of the strategy. Working through its Education Committee it will review the strategy each year, taking account of other University strategies which bear on teaching and learning. The General Board will agree and periodically review an action plan consistent with this strategy. 

An update to the Learning and Teaching Strategy Action Plan can be found here: 

Learning and Teaching Strategy 2015-18, Action Plan Progress Report (October 2017) 

The Education Committee is currently (throughout 2018-19) finalising a longer-term Education Strategy to replace the Learning and Teaching Strategy; this will be posted on this page after it has been agreed.

Digital Strategy

The University has developed a Digital Strategy for Education (2016-2020), which is overseen by the Digital Teaching and Learning Sub-committee.  The Strategy was launched in June 2016 and is intended to act as a framework for developing the use of technology to support education. The Strategy is supported by an Action Plan.


Technology Enabled Learning Pilot

The University has launched a pilot programme of support for Technology-Enabled Learning (‘TELP’). This programme has been developed with the support of the University Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy Group and is designed to help the University understand the capability needed to enhance education provision and to examine how this might be made available to other learner groups with different needs and constraints, where it is appropriate to do so.

Through a series of individual, local projects, we will learn more about how to develop new digital content in teaching programmes, and about how that content can be used to enhance learning within Cambridge and potentially beyond.

Full details of the TELP programme, its objectives and the kind of projects anticipated, can be found in the call document.  Questions about TELP may be directed to the project lead, Michael Cresswell

Applications for the first phase closed on 25 March 2019.

The University also provides support for digital education more broadly, through the annual Teaching and Learning Innovation Fund (‘TLIF’), which is currently accepting calls for proposals. Full details of the TLIF are available here: 

In the current round, projects will be supported through either TELP, or TLIF, but not both.
