Is special needs education your passion? Then come and share your ideas with other at TeachMeet SEN! #TMSEN12

I’m delighted to announce, after a rather long gestation, the launch of TeachMeet SEN (Special Needs Education) which will take place on Saturday 28 January, 2012 in Leicester. Following an inspirational TeachMeet East Midlands earlier this year, Josie Fraser and I hatched a plan for a special needs focused teach meet on our journey back to Leicester. Josie has done a great job securing an amazing venue (Phoenix Square) and we are really looking forward to getting the new year started with a bang with TeachMeet SEN.

TeachMeet SEN will focus on engaging, amazing and effective examples of practice from school leaders, teachers and learning support staff working with children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Learners with SEN are a significant and diverse group, and we expect the first SEN focused TeachMeet to be an exciting one – reflecting the creativity, enthusiasm and the wide range of knowledge and approaches of practitioners.  Come along – learn something new, share your successes, and meet professionals who share your passion and interests. The event is open to people from all sectors with an interest in this area. Practitioners are invited to sign up to contribute either a micro (7 minute) or nano (2 minute) presentation – and share with us the ideas, tools, techs and practices that have made a real difference to learners with SEN.

TeachMeet SEN  offers brilliant opportunity to start the year with a bang – present your practice, tips, favorite tools & resources and network with colleagues.

TeachMeet is an informal, free meeting, providing space and structure for educators to share practice, innovation, insight and approaches. Participants are all encouraged to think about what they could bring to the event, and to volunteer to share practice that works. Everyone is welcome to sign up to contribute either a micro (7 minute) or nano (2 minute) presentation – and share with us the ideas, tools, techs and practices that have made a real difference to learners with SEN.

Full details, FREE registration and sign up to give a micro or nano presentation.

  1. Jo,

    Great to read about TeachMeet SEN. I ran an online (Flashmeeting) TeachMeet ASN-SEN in 2009. You can browse it at http://teachmeet.pbworks.com/w/page/19975383/TeachMeet%20ASN-SEN%202009%20online.

    Also, I am planning for Radio #Edutalk (http://edutalk.cc/pages/radio-edutalk) into 2012 and had asked on Twitter for suggestions for guests. A certain DD suggested that I approach you to see if you would like to share and discuss some of your work during one of the weekly broadcasts. I will be in touch about this within the next week to see if you are interested.

    David
