    Is the teachmeet event not being advertised on the official TeachMeet site?

    Steve,

    The Innovative Teacher Meet is more of an informal gathering rather than an official teachmeet. We use the phrase 'teachmeet style' to give teachers an indictaion of the nature  of the event , which is a first for us in the Partners in Learning team. It will be where we will present our Innovative Teachers Awards, as well as the usual networking and discussion.

    Thanks

    Stuart
