What is TeachMeet?


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. This is an informal gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. 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 Scottish Learning Festival TeachMeet is always something special. It is usually the biggest TeachMeet in Scotland and often attracts some of the biggest names in education. It is also great fun!

Typically, after a TeachMeet a number of participants go out for a bite to eat. Everyone is welcome and for many it is an important part of the evening.


TeachEat takes place at Aria Café Bar on Hope Street, a four-minute walk from The Optima. Upon arrival, you will be treated to one alcoholic drink (beer or wine) or soft drink, and either burger (various, including vegetarian) and chips, pizza, or pakora.
