|Event Subject or Topic Area:||Geography|
|Target Audience:||Geography Teachers and Heads of Department|
The teach meet is a chance for teachers of GCSE and A level Geography to get together and discuss the "WWWs" and the "EBIs" after a full run through of the new specifications. The session will be a mix of both presentations from volunteers who would like to share some of their ideas as well as breakout sessions to discuss with other Geography teachers the lessons they have learned these past two years when teaching GCSE and A level Geography.
Teachers will hopefully be able to walk away with at least one "golden Nugget" of an idea that they can implement in to their department. This could come from the watching of presentations or from discussion with other teachers. It will also be a rare opportunity for geography teachers to have time to network and set up links with other schools, which would be encouraged through the different sessions.
