What is a TeachMeet? A fun, informal event for sharing great ideas for teaching and learning with opportunities to network with other educators. Read more about TeachMeets here: [What is a TeachMeet?]
What should I expect? Refreshments on arrival and lots of interesting ideas for Teaching & Learning that you could be using in your classroom the very next day. There will be an emphasis on the general use of technology to support teaching & learning and some focus on Computing too. This is not a sales event, so no sales presentations promote products or services please.
What do I need to bring? We invite you to bring along an idea, some pupil work, or a resource you've used recently for the SpeedMeet session. It doesn't matter if you're not too proud of it, another teacher might be really interested in it.
Do I really need to present? TeachMeets thrive when lots of teachers offer to present, but nobody is forced to present. Please consider presenting, you don't need to be an expert on something to present an idea; you might share something you've observed, heard, read about or something you've tried in your own classroom. You can present for up to 5 minutes. Some presenters choose to use slides or photographs, but it's not a requirement.
What's a SpeedMeet? It's like TeachMeet presenting in a speed dating format, so there's no stress of standing up and speaking to a large audience, you'll just talk to 2 or 3 teachers at a time. We'll have some furniture set up with opportunities for you to show off some teaching resources or share some strategies you've used to a small group of teachers and educators for just 3 minutes. Please bring an idea or a resource along with you.
What's TeachEat? After the event, you have the option of joining a group of us as we head to The Ford Madox Brown (Wetherspoons Pub, 12 minutes walk away) for those who would like to socialise after the TeachMeet or have something to eat. https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/england/manchester/the-ford-madox-brown-manchester
