Cumbria English Teach Meet
Saturday, 31 January 2015 from 10:00 to 13:00 (GMT)
Cockermouth, United Kingdom
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Cumbria's first ever Teach Meet, especially for English teachers. Organised by NATE's North West representative, Amy Forrester, this is a new event for English CPD in the county. It is an 'unconference', if you will, where presentations are given by teachers, for teachers. Everyone in attendance is invited to present either a nano presentation (2 minutes) or a micro presentation (7 minutes) or in some cases, a deluxe presentation (15 minutes). The only rule of these is that they must be things that you, as a teacher, do, in your classroom, that work brilliantly.
This is an event which is sponsor and business free. There will be no sales pitches, nothing forced on you; simply, great CPD by English teachers, for English teachers. Most importantly, it will be entirely free and there will be biscuits, as well as a chance to network with local colleagues and share good practise further.
It is aimed at secondary level but primary and FE colleagues are most welcome.
This will include a very special guest to be revealed at a later date!
