TeachMeet Cambridge - May 2013

Page history last edited by Guest User 7 years, 4 months ago

What is a TeachMeet?

It is an informal and enjoyable gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, a teaching resource they love, a great website, a classroom activity - whatever you like! You can ask questions or simply turn up to soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm.


The main part of 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!


The theme of this TeachMeet is Science Education


When is the TeachMeet?  

Wednesday 15th May, 5.00pm for tea, coffee and cakes, presentations starting at 5.30pm. Depending on the number of presentations, we anticipate finishing at about 6.30pm.
