@athole nails the feeling that TeachMeet started with. A move away from professional development being done to us to being done by us. It is clear teachers need help from experts, research and leaders from both inside and outside the classroom but TeachMeet was started to provide a different sort of space. It is worth trying to keep it that way.
“Always felt TeachMeet movement was about reimagining a world without keynotes and guest speakers. They’ve a place at the table but dominate professional learning dialogue to an unhealthy degree, I worry. Too often about platitudes and polemics than practice & messy imperfections”
