This is a hybrid event.

The 3rd Teaching Classical Languages Symposium showcases approaches to the teaching and assessment of ancient Greek and Latin developed by secondary, tertiary, and online adult-education instructors from Australia and New Zealand. Conference speakers share and discuss a diverse range of classical language teaching strategies to assist 21st century learners in a range of educational contexts. This hybrid event will take place at CCANESA, University of Sydney, on Friday 12th August 2022. The keynote speaker is Drew Keller, co-author of the popular textbooks, Learn to read Latin and Learn to read Ancient Greek, published by Yale University Press. This year’s symposium commemorates the late Dr. Emily Matters whose contribution to the teaching and promotion of Classics was immense. The symposium is hosted by Classics & Ancient History at Sydney, the Classical Language Teachers Association, and the Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia (CCANESA).
