The Modern Language Teachers' Association NSW (MLTANSW) is coordinating a TeachMeet on Friday 15 September from 4.30pm at the Independent Education Union (IEU) Sydney Offices, 485-501 Wattle Street, Ultimo.
This is a FREE informal gathering of teachers exchanging ideas and learning from each other. The idea is to share good practice, practical innovations and/or personal insights in teaching, and/or to discuss a tool that enhances classroom practice. Each presentation will be followed by discussion time so everyone becomes an active participant in the event. It is expected that it will be NESA-registered for standards 2.1.2, 6.3.2 and 7.4.2.
A video conference link may be provided for those who are not able to attend in person.
Please complete the registration form so that organisers are aware of numbers for space, light catering and video conferencing requests.
It would be wonderful to have many languages teachers participate on 15 September.

The Modern Languages Teachers Association of New South Wales (MLTA NSW) would like to invite you to attend their annual conference Building capacity - creativity and collaboration in Languages Education, which will be held at Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College, 17 Comer St Burwood, NSW on Friday 17 March.
The guest speaker will be Dr Ken Cruickshank who will share some of his recent research and address the question “What makes for a successful languages program?”. Current Languages practitioners will present a series of workshops and you will be updated on developments in Languages in NSW and at the national level.

If you would like to actively participate in the conference, please consider preparing a 2 to 7 minutes presentation for a TeachMeet-style session in the afternoon. It can be anything from an idea you have adapted from someone else, a summary of an interesting and/or relevant article, a strategy or game you have used with success with your students, or any original idea you have tried.
