Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they’ve trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. Education professionals from all sectors are welcome to take part.
The main part of TeachMeet is hearing stories about learning, from teachers. This is not an event to present about a product or theory – this is a chance for teachers from all types of establishments to hear ideas from each other. Real narratives of practice that make a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and a whole bucket load of networking to boot!
Teachmeet presentations are short. Attendees can simply come along and watch or ideally offer to give a 7 minute micro presentation or 2 minute nano presentation, showcasing something they’ve found useful in their classroom practice.
For the past two years, Priory Geography has been organising and hosting the event. Next term, the evening will start with a drinks reception on board HMS Victory before moving into the National Museum of the Royal Navy. Optional Laser Quest is available after the talks.
We are delighted to announce that Tim Rylands has agreed to keynote the event as he will be working with local primary schools.
So, sign up on the wiki here and put the 17 September in your new diaries now! Email the organising team if you’d like to support the event through sponsorship or raffle prizes, or have any questions.
