Summary: The field of “Classics” covers a wide range of approaches, disciplines, and perspectives, and, given the state of many Classics departments today, it is likely that many of us will be asked to teach in a variety of contexts and to a variety of audiences. In this workshop, Prof. Joe Farrell will lead discussion that will cover, among other things, teaching classes at different levels, how to tailor classes and material for specialist and non-specialist audiences, the transition from teaching translation courses to discussion-based classes, incorporating culture and history into translation or language classes, and incorporating literature and language into history and culture classes. Participants are also encouraged to bring up their own concerns and questions for discussion.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Classics department and so may be of most use to students in related disciplines.
Counts toward the CTL certificate.
