Plymouth Education Society - SEN Teach Meet

Page history last edited by Lizzie Porter 10 years, 1 month ago

Learn something new; be amazed, amused and enthused!


The Plymouth Education Society are holding their first (of many!) Teach Meet of the new academic year. We will be focusing on the topic of Special Educational Needs. Please check out our website at http://plymedsoc.org.uk/ and sign up below!


What is a TeachMeet?


It is an informal and enjoyable gathering of those curious about and involved in teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialed in their classrooms, ask questions or simply turn up and soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm. In particular, this Teach Meet focuses on Special Educational Needs and so if you have any ideas, experiences or stories that you would like to share, then sign up to talk!


The main part of the TeachMeet is hearing stories about learning, from teachers and other education professionals. This is a chance for education professionals to hear ideas from each other, a chance to hear real narratives of practice that makes a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and gaining a whole bucket load of networking to boot!
