Welcome to the second Glasgow TeachMeet event – bringing educators together within an organised, but informal, setting to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights in teaching and learning. The event is being hosted and run by City of Glasgow College with support from College Development Network.

The theme for this Meet is ‘Less teaching, more learning – encouraging self-directed learning’, not aligned to a specific subject area or level, just an invitation to talk about anything you’ve seen/experienced that works well (or perhaps doesn’t). You might just have a question that you’d like to ask, or something that you’d like some feedback on. In any case, it’s an opportunity to soak up all the ideas and atmosphere.

(Don’t be phased by the robot … it’s more about the education than the tech, though s/he is missing a name – any suggestions?)

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.

Okay – so if you have all of that, just put your name (and title of presentation if you’re delivering) below and we’ll look forward to seeing you on the 22nd!
