TeachMeet going (more) global
TeachMeet grew from a meeting of minds around some French food in Edinburgh, during the Spring of 2005. It was the first educational unconference that knew it was one, and continues to achieve as much or more than many 'cons' and 'uncons' that have since followed, relying on a simple set of unbudgeable rules to maintain a high bar of for-teachers-by-teachers structured and unstructured learning, with plenty of fun guaranteed.
I got conference organizers asking me to organise TeachMeets alongside their events. It looks like Holland (well, the whole world really) is ready for creative and informal ways to meet and learn.
