The Oxford Day details

This is an opportunity to participate in a CPD study day focused on poetry, language and dictionaries. It will provide an excellent opportunity to explore the connections between poetry, language and dictionaries in ways which will support teacher and student learning. The day will be relevant to GCSE and GCE Advanced level courses in English Language, English Literature, and English Language and Literature, the International Baccalaureate and the new AQA GCE Creative Writing. We hope it will be an interesting and enriching day not limited to public examination outcomes.

Please Note: Following the recent renewal of the public libraries agreement with OUP, all UK residents can enjoy free 24/7 access to the online editions of The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) and the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (ODNB) from any web-connected computer as part of their individual public library subscription.
