The Teachmeet Mission:
  • To inspire each other with interesting and useful ideas
  • To develop and maintain a network of partners in teaching and learning
  • To share ideas and strategies for use in the classroom and beyond

What people are saying about TeachMeet:

Let's make use of the #TMBris hashtag to help build this and be sure that even though we may be one hour behind 6 months of the year, that we are not behind the times.

Check out how it has been done down south with the successful TMSydney.

* TeachMeets are informally organised events which facilitate teachers sharing their classroom practice in the presence of other educators. Teachmeets are held at various locations around Australia. The venues we choose are a range of public and private establishments with various levels of risk to patrons. The hosts are responsible only for organising the event to the best of their ability. Attendees take it upon themselves to be responsible for their own safety and security – including that of their property. The venues we use will have their own arrangements for appropriate insurance and, by hosting an event, accept the normal responsibilities of that venue under typical circumstances. The hosts will not accept responsibility for the safety and security of participants or their individual satisfaction with the professional development provided on the day.
