Following on from the positive response last year, the INTO and Teachmeet Ireland will jointly organise and host another Teachmeet and Researchmeet at the 2017 Education Conference in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th November. The INTO would like to encourage delegates nominated to attend the 2017 Education Conference to present at Teachmeet and/or Researchmeet.
As the theme of the 2017 Conference is ‘ICT in Education’, the Teachmeet is calling on delegates to share good practice, practical ideas and personal insights into the use of ICT in their teaching.
What is a Teachmeet?
A Teachmeet is an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano (2-minute) or micro (5-minute) presentations on any aspect of education – in this case, making sure no child is left behind in education.
The Researchmeet offers delegates to the conference another excellent opportunity to share their research findings with other teaching colleagues. This year we are particularly interested in hearing from teachers who are completing/have completed research in the broad area of ICT 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.
- We have now closed applications for presenting, and can announce the presenters at our two events! Click here for the programme of presenters at Teachmeet, while the programme for Researchmeet is available here.
