First Teachmeet of 2012

Wednesday 4th of January saw me take a trip to Edinburgh in the squally, damp weather for my first Teachmeet of the year. Teachmeet 365/4, the new, sleek, lightweight Teachmeet was held in the education centre of the newly refurbished Scottish National Portrait Gallery and attended by around 20 educators.

Everyone had a chance to speak or start a conversation, with only a handful of ‘lurkers’, which was a refreshing change. It was great to hear a lot of short, sharp ideas and also get a good chance for a blether afterwards at All Bar None, and even later beside the warming fireplace of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

There were no suits, no briefcases, no political agendas, just a good old blether about what happens in the classroom and how we can make it better. What a good start to a new year.
