Teachmeet Carnegie College

We held an internal Teachmeet at Carnegie College to share ideas and best practice amongst teaching staff.

Around ten presentations were made by staff from different departments on a range of topics including:

Although the presentations were very informative, unfortunately the turnout for the audience was very poor. The presentations were amongst the most useful CPD activities that have been offered in this past week at college (and there have been a lot), but for some reason there didn’t seem to be an appetite for participation.

Having attended a few ‘regular’ Teachmeets myself, I’ve found that the participants are predominantly from Primary and Secondary schools, and there is a distinct lack of participation from FE and HE. Maybe the ‘high and mighty’ lecturers know everything already. Maybe they wouldn’t be seen dead slumming it with school teachers. I really don’t know what their problem is.

My next Teachmeet will be during the Scottish Learning Festival on 21st September 2011 at the Glasgow Science Centre.
