What is this all about?

#PedagooNess is on. Building on the success of Pedagoo’s many events, #PedagooNess will provide a collaborative, dialogue-based professional learning experience to any and all teachers in the Inverness area who wish to attend, supported by ongoing learning throughout the year on Attendance at this event will be free! This event is part of #PedagooLocal TakeOver 2015.

What’s a PedagooLocal event?

Pedagoo events are TeachMeets with a difference. They’re all about teachers coming together to share their practice, but we take a longer format approach to this sharing. Larger Pedagoo events are run by the PedagooCurator team, but any teacher can run a PedagooLocal event for their local area as long as they can agree to the vision outlined here. PedagooLocal events are supported by, but not organised by, Pedagoo.

When and where will it be?

#PedagooNess will take place on Saturday 26th September 2015 at Millburn Academy, Diriebught Road, Inverness, IV2 3QR.

What will it look like?

Pedagoo events take a workshop rather than a presentation approach. To reflect this and encourage discusion we are asking teachers to “lead a learning conversation”. We first asked teachers to sign up to lead a conversation and now we have opened the event to everyone else.

In true Pedagoo-style this will not be a series of lectures but a day of conversations in which everyone is encouraged to get involved. Active not passive.
