Dr. Genevieve Lively receives University Teaching and Learning Award.
Dr. Genevieve Liveley was one of three staff members across the university to receive a Teaching and Learning Award for 2009-2010. The award recognizes excellence in the design and delivery of teaching within the university as well as significant contributions to pedagogy within the discipline of Classics at a national level. Dr Liveley is resourceful in finding ways to communicate with students using the newest technologies and social networks and in forging connections between the ancient authors she loves and thecontemporary world. In the area of ab initio language teaching she has carved out a unique niche for herself within the wider subject community and is much sought after at events up and down the country to talk about the innovative methods of on-line learning and assessment she has devised and developed. In the Department of Classics and Ancient History she has taken a unit which had long been regarded as‘difficult to teach’, the core MA unit which aims to introduce students to a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to studying the ancient world, and transformed it into a popular and stimulating experience for students who no longer feel out of their depth or intimidated by the material they are asked to work with.
