I generally approach teaching in a very casual manner, and really enjoy being guided by students. I find that often students will ask questions that really promote further discussion, and while I like to have a bit of structure to my classes, I mostly believe in allowing students to explore the topic.
I've recently completed my PhD in Ancient literature, where I studied the works of Lucian of Samosata, a satirist writing in the second century AD. I have taught Ancient Greek at the University level both on campus in Hobart and via distance to Launceston in the past, and having completed my degrees at UTas, I am very familiar with UTas' unit structure, the content of the Classics units and the expectations for students.
