After winning a Vice-Chancellor’s Education award in 2020, the Classics in Communities team was invited to present at the Teaching and Learning showcase in summer 2021. Dr Arlene Holmes-Henderson, the project’s principal investigator and Senior Research Fellow in Classics Education, gave a talk which highlighted the project’s successes in widening access to Latin and Greek in state-maintained primary schools around the UK, teacher training, resource creation, community engagement and knowledge exchange with policymakers.
A new biennial event for Oxford, the showcase included six live online sessions held during 7th, 8th and 9th weeks, and brought together staff at all career stages at the University.
The event provided a platform for sharing examples of best practice in flexible and inclusive teaching from across the University over the past 12 months. It also provided a forum in which colleagues could consider which aspects of these practices they would like to build on in future.
For Oxford users, there is a recording of the event on the Showcase Canvas site together with copies of the slide presentations.
