What is a TeachMeet?

Library TeachMeets are an opportunity for librarians to learn from other librarians.   We will be hosting a Library TeachMeet in Scotland on 20th July (book here).  There will be short presentations (2 minutes and 7 minutes), lots of opportunity for discussion and networking, plenty of cake, and maybe drinks afterwards too!

Photo of cupcakesTeachMeets were originally started by teachers, and now librarians are also meeting up to share their own teaching experiences at (lib)TeachMeets.  This video, produced for a Teachers TeachMeet in Perth last year, outlines the ideas behind TeachMeets.

Recent LibTeachMeets have included Brighton, Newcastle, and Cambridge.  Some LibTeachMeets, including Cambridge, have videoed the presentations.  If you have a teaching idea that you’d like to share at the Library TeachMeet in Scotand you can sign up to give a presentation.
