insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12 & 13 students. The sessions support students’ current studies by giving an insight into particular curriculum areas whilst affording students the opportunity to talk to different universities and make informed comparisons about how, in this case, Classical Civilisation is taught.
In this insight4me Classical Civilisation webinar for schools and colleges, University of Reading and University of East Anglia will each have roughly 30 minutes to deliver a punchy, topic based ‘micro’ talk. Within an overall session theme of Virgil and the Aeneid, the universities have the freedom to choose their own topic and use the time to convey the key points of the case studies for the students.
Through the discussion, the universities are encouraged to provide an insight into the teaching and learning experience of this topic at university, and compare and contrast how other subject areas across the Classical Civilisation spectrum might be treated. Students will gain an insight into how these subjects continue beyond A-levels, T-levels, IB, BTEC and equivalent qualifications.
By hearing from 2 unis, students will also appreciate how the further study of Classical Civilisation can vary between institutions, contributing to the depth of their HE research and assisting informed decision making.
Full details of the universities and their talks will be available via this link in due course.
