Teachers from across Worcestershire and beyond gathered at a special event organised by the Institute of Education, University of Worcester to share ideas and best practice.
The TeachMeet Worcester event attracted around 200 attendees all interested in continuing to improve the quality of teaching in the region’s schools.
Duncan King, Academic Deputy at The King’s School, Worcester, delivered the keynote speech at the event. 19 teachers inspired the audience with a range of presentations on current ideas and the use of technology in their classrooms.
The event which took place at the University of Worcester Arena was hosted by a group of the University’s trainee teachers. The trainees undertook a variety of roles from welcoming teachers to the event to organising the timing of presentations and introducing each of the speakers. It was an invaluable opportunity for trainees to discuss teaching and learning with NQTs and experienced teachers.
Ann Jordan, Head of Institute of Education said: “It was wonderful to be able to gather so many teachers and educators in one place in order to share their ideas and experiences, and learn from each other. This kind of event is important in invigorating professional dialogue and improving our educational systems.”
