How I prepared for the study day!

Initially, I was fairly daunted by the idea of delivering a 50 minute seminar on my topic of interest, however thanks to preparation that involved exam revision and my dissertation as well as extra reading to reacquaint myself with the Gothic War I was able to enter my seminar well prepared if not a little bit nervous. I had settled on the topic of “Rome and the Gothic War” and various ideas on how to run the seminar. I consulted with other seminar leaders and attended a session on teacher training which allowed me to develop ideas on my methods of teaching including aspects such as challenging perceptions on certain stereotypes of ‘barbarianism’ through drawing, which thankfully lead to an enjoyable seminar.
