TeachMeets are FREE, informal "unconferences", all about creating opportunities for those interested in education to take the lead, share practice, discover new ideas, network and be inspired all during the course of one CPD fuelled evening! Anyone can get involved, share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations. All are welcome.


You don't have to speak at a TeachMeet, you can simply come and listen.

Want to get involved?


You can talk about anything that has inspired you, has worked well in class, a tool, a strategy, a topic... The list is endless. The one rule here is NO SELLING! Let's also agree not to cause any PowerPoint induced comas and remember technology may not always be your friend. Set up time is 2 minutes for each presentation. REMEMBER: You do not have to present anything, you can always be an Enthusiastic Lurker!

Presentation Rules


What are the rules for this Teachmeet ?


You can use whatever presentation format you want including PowerPoint, keynote, prezi, slide rocket, 280 slides, you could just talk, show something from the web, hold up a poster, sing a song or do something different?


The important thing is that you get your message across and you will only get a minute to set up.


Be prepared for technical difficulties and be ready to wing it on the night! That’s what makes TeachMeet exciting!


Jim will be 'throwing the camel' at anyone who strays too far over the 7 minute mark!
