Our first UnTeachMeet will be held at BACA* from 5.00 to 7.00 pm on the 21st June (follow link for address details). You may well be asking “what is an UnTeachMeet” – well, a TeachMeet follows certain rules which allow only teachers to present topics (follow links to our TeachMeet projects to get an idea). We thought it might be quite interesting for teachers if a few of our local businesses were able to do similar presentations, whilst at the same time, still being barred from making a hard sell. This would give the opportunity to see what educational projects are going on locally and possibly offer the opportunity for collaboration, prototyping, work experience etc.
To this end we are proud to present 9 talks – some from DEB members and some from other local establishments. It could well be an entertaining and useful session. If you are interested in coming along, there are still a few places left. Please contact Gill Ditch asap.
Here is a list of the presentations:
Maths Doctor – online maths tutorials
Retenda – Spaced Learning techniques to improve memory retention
Iris Connect – cpd through lesson observation and online community
Vital – professional development programme provided by the Open University
Iamcreative – opportunities for 13-19 year olds to work on live creative briefs from some top brands

Maker Fair – free interactive festival of creativity and invention
