Teachmeet at the INTO Education Conference 2016


We are delighted to announce that our next Teachmeet event will be held at this year’s INTO Education Consultative Conference in Tullamore on Saturday 19th November – and that we’ll be hosting not one, but TWO different events!

The Conference presents an opportunity for inspirational educators to meet and share good practice, practical ideas and personal insights into primary education and leadership!

The main Teachmeet, getting underway at 11:15am, will follow the conference theme of ‘Teaching in the 21st Century’ – so we’re inviting you to share your inspirational strategies to lead teaching and learning in your own classroom and school.

But as well as this we’ll also be hosting a Researchmeet slightly earlier, at 9:30am – inviting delegates to present their recent/current research at a specially themed Teachmeet that morning.

What is a Teachmeet?
A Teachmeet is an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano (2-minute) or macro (7-minute) presentations on any aspect of education – in this case, teaching in the 21st century. Participants can be actively involved as presenters, or can simply relax and listen to all that will be on offer. Attending this meet will also illustrate how you yourself can host a Teachmeet in your own school or your own locality.

So can you share some tantalising tips, sizzling strategies or innovative ideas with us? Or are you looking to be enthused, excited and energised by similar minded educators?

If so, come join us on Saturday 19th November!
