Session outline:

"A Teachmeet is an informal gathering of teachers and education professionals where different practical approaches and classroom innovations are shared and discussed. There is also opportunity to discuss wider education issues through discussions with groups from across the education community."

This version of Teachmeet Strathclyde will be aimed at student teachers and tutors from Initial Teacher Education institutions.

There will be a series of peer-led presentations, and a range of round table discussions that will include reflections from placements and teaching practice from the early years, primary and secondary student teachers.

This is an excellent opportunity to network with student teachers throughout the School of Education (PDGE & B.Ed.) and an ideal way to share excellent teaching practice and experience.
