Mythology and Education - 18/02/2020, Cambridge (England)
Greco-Roman mythology is used widely and imaginatively in teaching and outreach activities from Early Years to Higher Education. This event, a follow-up to 2017's Mythology and Education: History and Practice, is an opportunity to analyse the pedagogical benefits and pitfalls of teaching mythology and to share and explore effective practices and innovation in the field. Join us for a one-day workshop featuring presentations and discussions from academics, teachers, museum specialists, the Cambridge Schools Latin Project, and more.
