Warwick Classical Civilisation Teachers’ Day
11th November 2020 @ 9:20 am - 4:30 pm
The University of Warwick is pleased to announce that it will be holding another Classical Civilisation A-level Teachers Day on Wednesday 11th November. Academics from the Dept. of Classics and Ancient History will lead sessions on modules from the OCR Classical Civilisation A-level syllabus, focussing on secondary scholarship and new developments, with the aim of sending teachers back with new understanding and strategies to help in student learning.
This event will be online. Pre-recorded lectures for each session will be available in the week before the event for attendees to watch at their leisure. Then on Wednesday 11th itself live Q&As will take place throughout the day over Zoom with our speakers on each topic (see schedule below). This will allow you to attend as many of the Q&As as you wish. These Q&As will also be recorded for those who cannot attend live.
A Booking Form for the event can be found here.
In addition to two sessions on The World of the Hero (Homer and Virgil) Teachers will be given a chance to attend sessions from the Culture and the Arts and Belief and Ideas pathways.
