What are Teacher Study Days and who are they for?

The Teachers Study Day is designed to provide subject specific development opportunities for teachers of A Level Art History or A level Art. The events help strengthen links between sixth form teachers and universities, with a view to increasing and securing uptake of History of Art at both levels.  

Those attending AAH Teacher Study Days will have opportunities to network, to learn about the latest research from local faculty members in university departments and to discuss pedagogical issues and strategies at both secondary and tertiary level.

The study day includes specialist workshops by art history lecturers on teaching topics as well as practical talks about pathways in art history at university and beyond.
