German Teacher Day at Warwick

With generous support by:


On Saturday July 2, we invited teachers to a day comprising multiple sessions, based in our new, state-of-the-art Faculty of Arts Building. This was a part day event, running from 09:45 until 15:00 approx with a diverse and engaging programme (to follow), including (but not limited to)

  • a welcome address from colleagues in Warwick German Studies, offering insights into the study of German at university today and the careers it can lead to;
  • co-delivered pedagogy sessions for sharing methods, approaches and resources in a range of key teaching areas - developed in dialogue with colleagues from schools;
  • presentation(s) by guest speakers, including colleagues from Goethe Institut
  • exhibitions showing the range of outreach work and wider value of German Studies projects at Warwick;
  • opportunities to network, discuss shared ideas and concerns and plan for future events and exchanges.

The programme will comprised plenary and parallel sessions, speaker-led and round-table discussions, based on school- and university-generated input: to this end we drew upon information from participants on what they would like to gain from pedagogy exchange sessions, on whether they would like to share, contribute or even chair a session. Staff of all levels of experience and seniority attended, from trainees and NQTs through to heads of department, and from schools from the state and independent sectors.

Lunch and refreshments will be served, and you’ll have the opportunity to tour our facilities and see the campus, too. Participation is free, though participants will need to cover their own travel costs.*
