The third annual Classics in Wales Teachers' Conference -03/03/2018, Swansea (Wales)
The third annual Classics in Wales Teachers' Conference will be held at Swansea University Bay Campus on Saturday 3rd March. This event is designed to bring together teachers and researchers of Classics at all levels to share ideas and innovative teaching methods. The programme this year focuses on the demands of the new OCR specifications for Ancient History and Classical Civilisation; as well as speakers from schools and universities, there will be small-group workshops on specific teaching and learning issues in all Classical subjects. Thanks to the generous support of the Classical Association, attendance is free, and we would like to invite teachers of Classics, or teachers who would like to introduce Classics as a new subject in their school. Student teachers are also welcome to attend.
