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.

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.





Library TeachMeets will also be happening at the following conferences:


LILAC 2015, 9th April, 2015, Newcastle University

LILAC TeachMeet presentations




North West Academic Libraries Conference, 15th July 2015,
