What is a TeachMeet?


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about innovative ways of teaching and learning in History. 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 get some ideas from the grassroots!
