Spoken Latin as a Teaching Tool

Online, 20/06/2023 – 21/06/2023

A Workshop Hosted by the Teaching Committee
of the International Association of Neo-Latin Studies (IANLS),
led by Andrew Morehouse and Ilse van Rooyen of Latinitas Animi Causa

This workshop is meant for teachers who are interested in spoken Latin and would like to know more about how and why it is used in the classroom. The workshop will feature two 90-minute sessions on Zoom. The first day of the workshop will focus on the scholarly and pedagogical rationale: why is spoken Latin an effective tool for teaching students to read authentic Latin texts? The second day of the workshop will focus on practical application: what are some methods for using spoken Latin in the classroom? No previous experience with spoken Latin is necessary, and no specific preparation for the workshops is required.

Day 1: Pedagogical rationale for spoken Latin as a teaching tool, 20 June 2023 at 11:00am–12:30pm US Eastern Daylight Time (= 17:00–18:30 Central European Time).

Day 2: Practical application for using spoken Latin as a teaching tool, 21 June 2023 at 11:00am–12:30pm US Eastern Daylight Time (= 17:00–18:30 Central European Time).

Digital@IANLS Wikidata workshop

Online, 10/02/2023 and 24/02/2023

The Committee for Digital Resources will launch a new series of events digital@IANLS as a way to advance the use of digital technology among the members of the Neo-Latin research community by introducing digitalisation projects, demonstrating the use of digital tools and promoting best practice in employment of information technology for Neo-Latin research.

The events will be held online, their frequency will depend on the availability of speakers and topics, and the format will not be strictly defined (e. g., workshops, lectures, roundtable discussions and presentations are all possible). All members of the IANLS are encouraged not only to attend as speakers, but also to get in contact with the Committee in order to present their own digital projects or to suggest a speaker or a topic.

Please find the information and call for the first workshops HERE.
