Non vitae sed scholae

Omvälvningar pågår alltjämt, och passar sålunda på att för content slänga ut en lite annons från vännen Andrew Bolchazy-Carducci, om deras "second annual summer webinar series" för framförallt latinlärare. Kanske någon som är intresserad?

"Starting in June, Latin teachers teach Latin teachers online in Bolchazy-Carducci Publisher's second annual, weekly series of online seminars. We have some exciting new sessions this year on Vergil, Catullus, Cicero, etymology, Roman culture, and Latin 2.0, not to mention two sessions from Terence Tunberg and Milena Minkova including a Virtual Conventiculum! Returning favorites Rose Williams and Anna Andresian will reprise their popular sessions from 2008.

Whether you’re a new Latin teacher looking for teaching tips or are a seasoned veteran continuing your professional development, Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers offers you a diverse menu of options to give you what you need. You may be eligible for credit hours towards recertification; check with your school, district, or state to confirm.
More than just an online lecture, attendees can dialogue with each other and the speakers live, view presentations, and explore teaching materials used by the speakers themselves.
