On Thursday 21 June 2012 a Radical Shakespeare Teaching Roundtable was held at the Shakespeare Institute. This linked the big, cross-sector 'Shakespeare Reloaded' and 'Better Strangers' projects directed by Professor Liam Semler of the University of Sydney, to creative teaching initiatives at the Shakespeare Institute (SI), Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (SBT), Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and St Benedict’s Catholic High School in Alcester.

Present at the event were Liam Semler, Professor Ewan Fernie (SI), Dr Jacquelyn Bessell (SI), Paul Edmondson (SBT), Tracy Irish (RSC), Linzy Brady (USyd), Claire Hansen (Usyd), Greg Cunningham (Barker College, Sydney) and Lucy Solomon (Barker College, Sydney). 

Professor Ewan Fernie and Dr Jacqelyn Bessell will be launching new programmes in Shakespeare and Creativity at the Institute in 2013
