LibTeachMeet - Librarians sharing teaching ideas 



What's a TeachMeet?


TeachMeets are informal gatherings of (originally) teachers, designed to allow the sharing of ideas. Library TeachMeets are for librarians who teach! Find out more about the history of Library TeachMeets in the article "TeachMeet: Librarians learning from each other" by Niamh Tumelty, Isla Kuhn and Katie Birkwood.






Upcoming Library TeachMeets:


Please post upcoming LibTeachMeets below in chronological order below - this is a free wiki so you will need to request to join:

Library Teachmeet Huddersfield, 2016!

We're holding a TeachMeet for librarians (and people in other learning support roles if you want to come along!) at the University of Huddersfield on 23rd February 2016.

This will be a really informal opportunity for librarians who teach to get together to share tips and experiences.

If you've never attended a TeachMeet before, be prepared to give a short (5 minute) talk on an aspect of your teaching practice - the idea of the Teachmeet format is that as many people share as possible!

Some places will be available for those who don't want to give a 5 minute presentation, but you'll still be expected to share your experiences in other activities on the day.

We've also made some places available for people who can't make the day, but still want to share :)

Booking form is via Eventbrite.






Ponteland High School is holding a Lib TeachMeet on Wednesday 24th June 2015, 1.30-4pm.

It is free and we hope it will provide a great learning, sharing and networking opportunity for library staff from across the region (people from elsewhere are, of course, very welcome!).

Predominantly such events are not held in Schools, so I thought I would change the norm and offer this opportunity.

Everyone is welcome, librarians, information assistants, head of your organization or a junior assistant… we’re looking forward to seeing you. 

If you wish to contribute, the only rule is that your presentation mustn’t be trying to sell us anything , and you must stick to the timeslot.

You can use PowerPoint or you can just talk, and / or show something from the web.  Anything that will kick-start a discussion will be very welcome.  
Examples of presentations I have seen are:

                        • Library poster displays
                        • Jigsaws as a means of teaching sixth form students about writing essays.
                        • Interactive tools to assist with Library Inductions.





Saturday 25th April 10.00am to 4.15pm at Lilian Baylis School London SE11 5QY
