For several years prior to the COVID pandemic, the Modern Languages department organised the LATE (Language and teaching) seminars. In 20222/2023, I am a core member of the organising committee of the Teaching and Scholarship seminars in Humanities. The first guest in December 2022 was Dr Amparo of the Women’s legacy project, a European project creating a depository of resources of women’s work in art and literature. In 2023, the speakers , mostly internal, will present workshops and gave seminars on topics ranging from the technology of interactive lectures to pedagogical reflections on different types of feedback.
