TeachMeet Pompey 17th September


Final bit of plugging for #tmpompey happening on the 17th September. TeachMeet Pompey has been growing for the last couple of years and is a great event for networking and sharing ideas. We are lucky to have the hospitality of the Historic Dockyard through Phil Wright at Action Stations which is a great venue.

This event we are being greeted with refreshments on the gundeck of HMS Victory to start, and then the event will kick off properly soon after in the Princess Royal Gallery of the National Museum of the Royal Navy which is a first for us. If you have never been to a teachmeet then the format is a very relaxed affair as far as we are concerned. Teachers / educators / enthusiasts can sign up to just come and have a listen or to provide a presentation on any topic they feel can benefit others. Presentations are informal and either 2 or 7 minutes long. It is a way of sharing ideas, tools and resources for any subject and any age range. Whether you are primary or secondary regardless you will find something useful to adapt to your own situation.

And this time we are very excited to have Tim Rylands providing a keynote talk which is fantastic and something to look forward to.

I seem to have been cajoled into providing cupcakes somehow, and there will be other refreshments available during the evening. Following the event there is the chance to take part in Laser Tag at Action Stations if you wish (and to try to knock David Rogers off his pedestal) and then go for some follow-up food at Gunwharf Quays. All very informal and casual (no dress code he he) but a good chance to meet others and chat.
