Preparing Future Faculty

All HCA's resources are available to early career and intending academics and History, Classics and Archaeology - individually and in combination - run events especially for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs), Postgraduates who teach, Part-time and Early-Career Staff. Please consult events.


Archaeology, with Classics, has established two annual workshops for this group in February and November, which focus on different relevant topics depending upon feedback received.

Classics has established two annual workshops with the title Teaching Ancient Languages: one in London in September, which is an intensive, speaker-filled day, geared towards first-time teachers and teaching beginners (complete with discussions of text books, pronunciation, etc.); and one in Edinburgh in January, which focuses on wider issues (e.g. retention, available technological support, integrated language teaching, large post-beginners group teaching) and includes more opportunity for participation in focused discussions.
