Virtual Learning Sessions

We offer a full range of schools workshops as online sessions. If you can't visit us in Chawton, meet us online instead for an inspiring and engaging session from the comfort of your classroom!

We have a fully inclusive virtual offer, available to anyone anywhere in the world!

If a visit to Chawton is not possible for your group, or if you require additional pre/post-visit sessions, we can deliver a full range of virtual tours and workshops at a time that suits you.

Virtual sessions are delivered live by a member of our Learning team and make use of our beautiful and engaging Virtual Tour. We’ll also use PowerPoint, images, text and video, interactive activities and games to keep your group engaged throughout.

Although digital activities are not a substitute for a wonderful on-site visit to Jane Austen’s House, we know that it helps to:
– Prepare students before they visit
– Provide follow-up activities
– Offer pupils who are not able to travel to Jane Austen’s House the ability to enjoy and benefit from high-quality engagement with the museum.

Our high quality digital offer has been co-created with schools in Hampshire to meet the requirements of the national curriculum Key stage 3, GCSE and A level English Literature.

All our workshops and tours are available as virtual sessions (not including ‘The hopes of the nation’: Action and Adventure Tour). In addition, we can provide:

-Supporting documents to aide deeper understanding

-Activities to introduce pupils to Jane Austen as a novelist. Video and PowerPoint

-Pupil activity booklets

-A repository of videos and activities to support pupils to hone and develop the skills they need, primarily but not limited to GCSE English Literature. These include short extracts from novels; activities designed to support pupils developing their critical style; videos of extracts performed by young actors to challenge students’ personal interpretation of the passage.
