Teachmeet at the Teaching Council’s FÉILTE 2017


We are delighted to announce that our next Teachmeet event will be held at this year’s FÉILTE conference, organised by the Teaching Council, on Saturday 7th October.

Every year FÉILTE, the Festival of Education in Learning and Teaching Excellence, is a celebration of teaching which showcases the work of teachers who are leading innovative learning projects. Our Teachmeet offers an opportunity for inspirational educators to meet and share good practice, practical ideas and personal insights into education. This is our third time facilitating a Teachmeet at the event!

This year’s event follows the conference theme ‘Leading Learning for All’. Participants are invited to share inspirational strategies they use to lead teaching and learning in their own school.

What is a Teachmeet?
A Teachmeet is an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano (2-minute) or macro (5-minute) presentations on any aspect of education – in this case, making sure no child is left behind in education.

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 7th October!

Please note: While tickets to attend FÉILTE are usually awarded by lottery, anyone chosen to present at the Teachmeet event will be guaranteed a ticket for the entire FÉILTE event. Following your application, we will be in touch by mid-September to confirm whether or not you have been chosen to present.

You can also download a flyer for the event here – please help spread the word by putting it up in your staffrooms!
