insight4me Classical Civilisation: Beliefs & Ideas With 2 Universities TBC
April 29 @ 11:10 - 12:10
insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12/Year 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, two universities (to be confirmed) will each have roughly 30 minutes to deliver a punchy, topic based ‘micro’ talk. Within an overall session theme of Beliefs & Ideas, 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 Year 12/Year 13 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 the A-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 posted below once confirmed.
Students will have the chance to question each speaker and/or offer their own ideas.
This will be a dynamic, fast paced event with the universities cycling between 2 different virtual rooms. The universities will decide how to manage the time but a rough guide would be a 20 minute talk followed by questions from the schools.
Suitable for: Year 12 and 13 students studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Classical Civilisation and related disciplines.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Classical Civilisation at university level.
The IT Setup: The IT setup will be different depending on whether schools are open or closed as a result of COVID-19 and therefore whether students will access the session at home or at school. We will update this section nearer the time when we have a clearer idea.
Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. Please do express interest here
We will contact you nearer the time with further details about how to connect in to the session.
