Event description

Description

The University of York Science Education Group (UYSEG) is proud to host the 8th annual York TweetUp TeachMeet (#YorkTU).

As with all TeachMeets, this is an opportunity for practitioners to share their ideas. Anyone attending can make a short (5 to 10 minute maximum) presentation, or just listen to the speakers and soak up good ideas to take back to your classroom. We keep the presentations nice and informal, and the subject matter can literally be anything you find interesting or pertinent and would like to share and discuss with like-minded people.

The event will be a fun and relaxed occasion where people can chat, share good practice, soak up good ideas and spend some quality time with those curious about teaching and learning science. Anyone can share ideas they've trialled, a resource they love, a useful website or activity - whatever you like! You can ask questions or simply turn up and absorb the great ideas and enthusiasm.

Beginning as the #YorkTU in 2012, the UYSEG #YorkTU Science TeachMeet was a chance for #ASEchat people to meet in person for the first time, and it is now an annual summer event supported by the Association for Science Education.

Refreshments

Morning tea and coffee will be provided.

As always, we will have a **Bring and share lunch**, so please bring something along to share.

Early evening

The event is usually followed by an optional trip to the pub in Heslington village, which is just a short walk from the meeting venue, for a pint and a bite to eat.

Travel and parking

UYSEG has received bronze and silver Green Team awards from the university in 2017 and 2018, and we are currently going for gold! To support our efforts, please consider travelling to the event by public transport rather than driving.

UYSEG is an easy bus ride from York train station. Use the 66 bus, which departs from stop RJ directly opposite the train station every 7-8 minutes, and alight at Heslington Hall. The journey time is approximately 15 minutes. From Heslington Hall, walk north up University Road onto Innovation Way, then left onto Alcuin Way.

If driving, you can park for free (from 6pm Friday until 8am Monday) in the car park next to UYSEG at the top of Alcuin Way.

Alternatively, there are numerous hotels and guest houses a short walk or bus ride from the campus.
