Shakespeare in Education: Innovating and Collaborating in the Age of Digital Humanities
25 Jun 2014, 9.00am - 4.00pm
Place The Glynn Rooms,
University of Birmingham
The British Shakespeare Association is pleased to sponsor a free event on Shakespeare and education in the digital age.
This event is designed for those interested in Shakespeare and education, including students, graduates, and Shakespeare educators at all levels and from all sectors. Together with disseminating, sharing, and discussing a range of teaching methods and approaches, visiting speakers and experts will discuss topics at the forefront of the field, ranging from using digital Shakespeare resources to active teaching approaches.
The day will combine presentations with roundtable discussions. Confirmed speakers include Dr Sarah Olive (University of York and editor of the British Shakespeare Association Teaching Shakespeare magazine), Dr Erin Sullivan (Shakespeare Institute), Anthony Banks (Associate Director, National Theatre Learning) and Dr Catherine Alexander (Shakespeare Institute).
This student-led symposium aims to build on the knowledge base of current approaches to teaching Shakespeare, by situating it in the latest scholarly conversation through sharing insights gained through the organisers’ wider experience in participating at international level Shakespeare conferences.
A light lunch will be provided for all attending. The venue is a short walk from the nearby railway station. There is parking; however it is very limited on site, so where possible delegates are advised to use public transport or seek alternative parking.
