Description

Conference: Digital Approaches to Teaching the Ancient Mediterranean

Digital resources have become an essential part of studying the languages, history, and material culture of the Ancient Mediterranean. This one-day conference looks at how this disciplinary turn is being integrated into both undergraduate and graduate courses. There will be sustained attention during the day on current practice in recent courses, and the speakers all have considerable teaching experience. Speakers will also address the goals of using digital methods, tools and resources in a wide range of pedagogic and institutional settings. Digital approaches to teaching do not merely replicate earlier methods so that new possibilities for expanding the scope of curricula will be an important topic. The day will end with a panel discussion and we will welcome input from all who are in attendance.

This conference is co-sponsored by ISAW and the Society for Classical Studies. The organizers are Sebastian Heath (ISAW), David Ratzan (ISAW), Tom Elliott (ISAW), and Patrick J. Burns (ISAW).
