Basic skills will be trained along with more advanced exercises and the new pedagogical and didactic approach enabled by ICT will be addressed.
Various topics from the CIRCE book and web site will be presented and followed up by workshops using computers to train various skills and point out the resources available for Classics (different kinds of software, internet resources, various databases, electronic dictionaries etc.). All will be put into in a pedagogical and didactic frame.
