TM Solutions - for those close(ish) to Brighton...

The 2nd running of Teachmeet Solutions happens on the 1st of July in Brighton.
As with last year, it's described by David Rogers as "teachers in a pub having a chat", which takes it back to the original origins of a Teachmeet: no keynote speakes, and no sponsorship and big raffles etc.
Here's the details on the Eventbrite page, where you can get your FREE ticket (my favourite price)

This isn't a new breed of TeachMeet, rather a return to the original concept: teachers meeting together to talk about teaching. In a pub. Leave the ego at the door, there won't be a keynote and there won't be the traditional firehose of presentations. Instead participants will all be contributors, leaving with practical ideas to improve learning.
This year, if you have an idea to share, and wish to talk let us know. Talks will be followed by discussion and a chance to consider the practical implications of what you've just heard. There'll also be the chance to speak on the day, similar to a barcamp style. Don't worry, it's all informal and beer or coffee aren't compulsory.
Each person who signs up will be asked to nominate an issue they'd like to either discuss or share ideas around. Discussions will be in small groups. Read about the founding event last year. We aim to support local businesses, so will use a local pub and will aim to provide refreshments from local suppliers.
Twitter will be used in the run up to the event to spark thinking and discussion ahead of the day. On the day, there'll be lots of informal conversations that lead to changes in your practice.
Everyone is welcome. Every contributor will be valued.
Our aim is to ignite collaboration and build a community.
Conversations will continue after the event in Brighton. Last year we grabbed a pub meal and headed out to sample more of the local pubs for those who wanted.
