'Consult a lecturer' service

If you’re currently teaching Classics in the South West and feel that you would benefit from a consultation with one of the University of Bristol’s Classics lecturers, please email Bristol Classics Department’s Outreach Co-ordinator, Lizzie Gourd (classics-hub[at]bristol.ac.uk), who will do her best to find an expert who can help you. Consultations will normally consist of brief email exchanges focused on responding to teachers’ specific questions. If you are interested in more on-going support, please see our mentoring service.

Teachers are welcome to ask any questions they like, but areas for consultation might include:

  • Helping teachers to acquire, update or enlarge subject knowledge
  • Finding resources appropriate for use with students
  • Guidance in the vast and rapidly-changing scholarship on the ancient world
  • Suggestions for topics for essay-writing, EPQs or student projects
  • Ideas on how to go beyond the syllabus to provide extra challenge

Why not check out the News & events page for our next Teach Meet? These after-school sessions give teachers from across the network the chance to connect, share ideas and discuss teaching classical subjects at all levels.
