Welcome to the NEW Teaching and Pedagogy page. This page is set up with carefully curated resources on best practices in teaching and pedagogy. Our first resources are focused on Universal Design in Learning to help you understand what it is and how to make remote teaching accessible for all learners.
If you know of additional materials and resources that other faculty members might find useful, feel free to send them to CELT@cambridgecollege.edu
Our new Ebsco Collection Manager allows faculty to browse from all available ebooks, including many textbooks, and request to add those books to our CCOL Online Library Collection. The books can then be linked through MyCC, and all students will have access.

Universal Design for Learning
Universal Design for Learning [UDL] is a research-based teaching framework drawing from the fields of neuroscience, the learning sciences, and cognitive psychology. It emphasizes providing learners with choices. In a course built around the principles of UDL, instructors provide multiple means of engaging learners and representing content, and they allow students multiple ways to demonstrate their learning.
Here are some ways to learn about UDL:
Here are some guidelines and checklists for UDL:

Understanding by Design
The Understanding by Design® framework (UbD™ framework) offers a planning process and structure to guide curriculum, assessment, and instruction. Its two key ideas are contained in the title: 1) focus on teaching and assessing for understanding and learning transfer, and 2) design curriculum “backward” from those ends.1
