TeachMeet FAQs

18 Dec 2019

What is a digital TeachMeet (or Teach Meet)?

Traditionally at TeachMeets, lots of teachers meet in one school or location to share best practice and good teaching tips in short presentations (typically no longer than 7 minutes long).

A digital TeachMeet still follows this format, but is not restricted by geography - it is more similar to a live stream where you can interact with the presenters, as we use Google Meet.

You can access our TeachMeet from anywhere in the world - all you need is an internet connection.

 

When is the event happening?

Thursday 6th February at 6 pm GMT. You can access the feed from 5.45 pm GMT and we will start the presentations from 6 pm after a quick intro from our host. 

 

How long will it last for?

It should be finished by 7 pm.

Turn off your camera and microphone unless you are presenting - this is due to the number of people in the TeachMeet.

Depending on the number of speakers, there should be time for a few questions. You can ask questions using the written chat feature on Google Meet.
