i-classicus: Ancient Languages in the Digital Classroom
19 May 2015
Dr Genevieve Lively has been awarded a University Teaching Fellowship to develop her project on i-classicus: Ancient Languages in the Digital Classroom. This two-year project aims to generate new knowledge in both theory and praxis in the broad field of HE ancient language teaching (from undergraduate beginners to intensive accelerated postgraduate training) in order to establish the UoB Department of Classics and Ancient History as an international leader in the use of supportive technology in its Latin and Greek teaching. Bristol already enjoys national renown for its dynamic use of new technology in modern language teaching: i-classicus aims to further this by focusing upon the specific needs of ancientlanguage teachers and learners, assessing and developing the potential of digital tools and resources to robustly support and enhance student learning in Classics. The project will generate a series of research papers and other publications to enable others to draw on its findings, and a Bristol-based i-classicus hub, sharing a digital bundle of open-access tools and resources with other universities and key interest groups, including the Classical Association, Council of University Classics Departments, Cambridge Schools Classics Project, Classics for All, Classics in Communities, and the Association for Latin Teaching.
