Yes, our second #teachmeetchester Upton Heath is for all teachers (and trainees and anyone involved in teaching and learning in schools). Although TeachMeets are usually about technology for learning, we are not just showing and telling about Computing or ICT - we'll be sharing all sorts of good ideas for enhancing learning! 


What is a TeachMeet?

A TeachMeet is a free CPD event, organised by teachers for teachers, to share simple, effective ideas for enhancing teaching and learning.

Although they started back in 2006 as informal meetings focusing on the use of technology, many now focus on other subjects and themes or, as is the case with #teachmeetchester TeachMeets, have no specific focus, but share good ideas from across the curriculum and across primary and secondary settings.  You can participate in a TeachMeet as a presenter or as an audience member – there is no compulsion to present, though lots of audience members have become presenters at subsequent TeachMeets. Presentations are either three or seven minutes long, making for a pacey event where lots of ideas are shared in an hour or so. If you have a teaching and learning idea that works for you, then why not share It? Whether you are an experienced teacher, NQT, associate teacher or TA, you can attend a TeachMeet at no cost – all we ask is that you sign up before the event, so we have an idea of how many are attending and who wants to present.


So, come along and  join the audience to watch, listen and be inspired! And there is a free prize draw with rather nice prizes.

There should be plenty parking spaces in the school grounds after 4.00pm, but if there are no spaces, please park considerately in nearby streets. To access the TeachMeet, go to the school's main entrance, which is clearly signed, and you will find the event taking place in the school hall which is directly opposite the entrance. Please sign in and enjoy the refreshments. We will try to start promptly at 4.45pm, but don't worry if you are a little late.
