This area of the website offers three examples of resources that
have been created using the Designing
Shakespeare digital collection,
an archive that provides a range of materials which are freely
available for educational use.
The resources presented have been created by the English
Subject Centre Staff and are designed for use in the classroom. These resources
have also been created to show, in a more generic sense, the potential
for reuse of existing materials on the web and to inspire teachers
to ask questions about resource creation of this kind.
This section of the website contains a Case Study of the MA in
Shakespeare Studies entitled Text and Playhouse that is jointly
taught by the King’s College London and the Globe Theatre.
The Case Study forms part of a larger project instigated by the
Higher Education Academy aimed at showing how research and teaching
are linked in a range of disciplines.
The aim of the English Subject Centre’s contribution to
this larger project is to, on the one hand, present an in depth
study of a particular programme that links teaching and research
in a practical way, and on other hand, show how a digital archive
can document and disseminate information about pedagogy and curriculum
This section of the website contains a growing collection of digital
resources that have been created as a result of the collaboration
between English Subject Centre staff and members of the discipline.
At present there are only two of these resources available but
it is our hope that this will be an expanding area.
The English Subject Centre is happy to accept proposals from members
of the community who would like to develop resources in this way.
The aim of this initiative is to increase the use and understanding
of digital resources creation while at the same time creating a
library of materials that will be useful to colleagues across the
