Why can’t professional development be this good in our schools?
On Wednesday 23rd March 2016, over 400 teachers came together in their own time to take control of their professional development. The event trended on Twitter across the UK from 6.30pm until 11pm; click here to see.
If you attended or followed @TeachMeetLondon online, this post will not need explaining. Even as I write, three days later the hashtag TMLondon is still full of content; professional development organised and led by teachers in their own time is buzzing the minds of those who attended or watched online.
We even had a team of ‘doodlers’ sketching the event. Click here to view the full image.
There was a great deal of preparation and planning for this TeachMeet, despite the first conversation only taking place 3 months ago, we managed to pull off one the greatest teacher-led CPD events, ever (again)! This would not have been possible, without the prowess of @, @TinaTinaWard, @ and @; as well as the reprographics, IT Support and premises team at the school. This all became evident on the day when all staff switched into gear.
It was a moment to feel proud.
It would not be possible to organise such an event without the hard work of a superb group of teachers who, for the past 4 months have given up their time freely, to help plan the event. We have been planning the marketing and organisation of the event to a fine detail. Thank you to:
