The Teaching for Learning Network


The Teaching for Learning Network (TfLN) grew out of pedagogical development activities funded by the Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI), a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). TfLN was established in order to extend and expand these activities.

TfLN provided support for faculties, departments and other groups in undertaking research and development projects with a specific focus of improving teaching and learning. The project generated and shared theoretical and practical knowledge about pedagogical practices and the conditions that promote their use in support of students' learning.

The project produced a series of papers and briefings, and an online research methods toolkit for others to use. The Plant Sciences project within TFLN was awarded the BERA/SAGE award for the most outstanding 'Research into Practice' project in post-compulsory education in 2007 (awarded to myself - Katy Jordan - and my colleagues, Fran Tracy and Keith Johnstone).

The TfLN used to have a website located at but as time has passed the domain has lapsed, so I have put together this webpage to host the publications and toolkits the project produced.
