Shakespeare Teachers' Conversations

Shakespeare Teachers' Conversations take place once a term at Birkbeck. They provide a space for teachers and lecturers to meet one another, discuss their methods, and share ideas and practical classroom/seminar tasks. Each meeting focuses on a particular challenge involved in teaching Shakespeare and other Renaissance drama. Short presentations (one each from a Key Stage 4-5 and a university perspective) are followed by informal discussion.

Anyone involved in (or contemplating) teaching Shakespeare is very welcome.
