Last month, the ColegauCymru Teaching and Learning Network were pleased to host the first in a series of Teachmeet events, designed specifically for colleagues in the further education and work-based learning sectors to share examples of good practice.
The events, funded by Welsh Government, also support knowledge exchange across the whole of the FE sector in Wales.
The first energetic event was hosted by guest speaker Nina Jackson of Independent Thinking. Nina’s work in mental health and well-being has had an overwhelming impact on children, teachers and parents alike. Her talk Pedagogy, Practice and the 4 Cs, looked at the importance of Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Care and how lecturers and educators can continue to inspire students to be the best they can be.
There was further valuable input from colleagues across the South East region of Wales covering a range of topics in timely subject areas. We were overwhelmed by the contributions made by the speakers and the energy of the contributions from delegates. We’re looking forward to the next event which will take place in December.
