What is TeachMeet?


 This is a free event for all those interested in education, learning and teaching. Teachers at any stage of their career or training, education advisors, support staff, local authority staff, and all those working in Scottish Education are welcome at the event- the more the merrier!


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about learning, teaching and education.

Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, learned about, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations.

To find out more watch our Brainpop video below




This event is particularly special as it is one of the last events which will be held at the Jordanhill campus, which was formerly the Jordanhill College of Education, before its closure in July 2012.



This sounds great! How do I sign up?

Please post your questions for our panel here or email to info@cpdstrathclyde.co.uk


1. Parents are already concerned about who their child's teacher is going to be for the year (even though they are qualified and experienced) so how easy do you think it is going to be to market the idea, appease anxiety and reassure parents that there children will still have consistency and continuity in learning and development if the school is a Hub school for initial teacher education placement experiences? (From Holly Hamilton)

2 . In the past week, CfE has been described as being at the 'make or break' point. Professor Donaldson described the dangers as 'misplaced priorities' and 'poor continuing professional development'. What are your views on the development of CfE so far, and on it's long term viability?

3. Jordanhill is closing at the end of this month which marks the end of an historic institution and place of teacher education. What do you see the legacy of Jordanhill being and how do you think it will be continued or celebrated as Jordanhill as a place of teacher education ceases to exist?

4. Some argue that the focus in the new curriculum on skills as opposed to knowledge is misplaced, and it could mean children missing out on core knowledge. Would you agree or disagree and how would you reassure someone with this viewpoint?








Jordanhill Campus, University of Strathclyde is a short distance from the city centre. It's a 10 minute walk from Jordanhill train station and the 44 bus stops at the bottom of the campus.




The star on the map indicates the David Stow building, where the Sir Fancis Tombs hall is located. There will be signposts on the night of the event directing you to the Sir Fancis Tombs hall.


For Sat-Nav and online mapping directions, use the postcode 'G13 1PP'





Follow along on Twitter, so let's keep it all together and use the following tag for all posts, images, tweets and presentations to do with TeachMeet Jordanhill: #TMJordanhill





Typically, after a TeachMeet a number of participants go out for dinner. Everyone is welcome, and for many it is as important a part of the evening as the Teachmeet.


It is expected that each person will pay for their own meal and drinks as it is unlikely that sponsorship will cover this cost.


If you you have any suggestions for a venue, please add below


  • The Three Craws (an Ember Inn like a Harvester close to JH station)
  • Little Soho Jordanhill (pizzeria)



Who's eating?


Please add your name, and any preference you might have, to the list below if you intend to come along to TeachEat:
