Full details

Due to the generosity of ASE volunteers, Sussex University staff and other partners we are able to offer this TeachMeet at no charge. If you are not already a member of ASE please strongly consider supporting the great work that ASE does for science teaching by joining. You can find out more about joining here:https://www.ase.org.uk/membership/membership-category/

You can come along to the TeachMeet to share or just to listen. 

What is a TeachMeet? FREE Science specific CPD. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, a teaching resource they love, a great website, a classroom activity - whatever you like! You can ask questions or simply turn up to soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm.  It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and gaining a lot of networking to boot!

What can you do?  You can just come along and be a member of the audience if you like, you can give a two minute nano-presentation on one of your favourite science teaching ideas, or you can give a seven minute micro-presentation on an aspect of classroom science teaching. You don't have to be an ASE member, just enthusiastic about teaching.

Theme: Support and Ideas for NQTs and NQT Mentors

If you are presenting please sign up as a presenter with a brief description of what you are presenting

Please tell other science teachers you know about the event and forward any emails to other in your network or academy group. If you've been to a TeachMeet before, aim to bring along someone who has not.
