Announcing our sixth TeachMeet Ayrshire event – bringing educators together to share good practice to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights into teaching with technology. The event is being hosted by the University of the West of Scotland and run by Ayrshire College with support from College Development Network.

The theme for this Meet is ‘EdTech – Practical Applications’, a general chat around educational technology – not aligned to a specific subject area or level, just an invitation to talk about anything you’ve seen/experienced that works well or doesn’t. You might just have a question that you’d like to ask, or something that you’d like some feedback on.

If this is your first time attending a ‘TeachMeet’, then first of all, thanks for joining us! TeachMeets are pretty informal affairs, although there is an element of organisation (choosing a date, finding a venue, and arranging for some refreshments), the content of the Meet is really determined by those who are attending.

There are basically 3 options to consider if you want to come along:

  • Deliver a 7-minute ‘micro’ presentation
  • Deliver a 2-minute ‘nano’ presentation
  • Just come along and see what’s happening!

On the day, we’ll spin a (virtual) wheel and invite people to share in a random order. We’re pretty strict on time (there’s probably going to be an annoying buzzer), so make sure you choose an appropriate slot for your presentation.

We’ll be holding the event at the Inver Restaurant on the campus, with a lovely view overlooking the surrounding town.

Okay – so if you have all of that, just register using the link below and we’ll look forward to seeing you on the 31st!
