TeachMeet Woodham 2013

Woodham Academy is proud to announce details of it’s second annual TeachMeet event.

A TeachMeet is a free, informal gathering of like-minded teachers coming together to learn from one and other, sharing practical innovations and personal insights in teaching.
Participants volunteer to showcase an aspect of their current practice or discuss something which has enhanced their classroom performance.
Presentations are strictly limited to two minutes or seven minutes. TeachMeet events are open to all and do not charge an entry fee.
