A TeachMeet is a model of teacher-driven professional learning that harnesses the dynamic energy that naturally comes in a gathering of passionate teachers. The session is designed to have a teacher as the host, the presenters are drawn from the participants, they create short and sharp presentations and a clear focus on the professional dialogue of a given topic.
Attendees are given a choice of either a 2, 7, or 20 minute block in order to give their micro presentation. Generally this can be lecture style, BYOD, Interactive Lecture, or even audience volunteers. The structure is very spontaneous and changes with each presentation.
