Sorry I couldn’t make the #beermeet but duty in the form of Chinese lanterns called.
The price is really good and shouldn’t put folks off. I like the idea of a video to get across the atmosphere and enthusiasm – would http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/ be able to find a spot for this? As for the impact – sometimes learning happens unintentionally, so if you just put it out there … you never know it might inspire the casual browser. And there’s always YouTube! Also, may be for the first one you might want people of a similar mind-set, just to help embed the concept of a TeachMeet Retreat – from small acorns …!” For me it’s not the number of people but the diversity and spread geographically that’s the best way of getting the word out. Make it a success (small if necessary) then look to build on that success. It’s a fantastic idea that can’t but be a success.
