TeachMeet II: The planning begins

I've just spent a lovely evening with Celine, Chris, Katie and Isla, wrapping up the last bits and pieces from our (lib)TeachMeet and preparing the next one.

We've sent out a questionnaire about the last one to see how people feel about it after having time to reflect and hopefully put some of the tools and tips into practice.  We also talked about how to share what we've found so far (more on that in due course...)

So for now, a few questions to help us plan the next one, for anyone who attended the last one or thinks they might like to attend future ones:
  1. How long do you think it should be?  Two hours in the early evening (as we did last time), a full afternoon or other?
  2. What day of the week suits you best?  Is it easy enough to get away from work during the week or would it be better to hold it at the weekend?
  3. Can you recommend a venue for future events?  We're thinking 50-100 attendees and interested in different types of room / space, so all suggestions welcome.
  4. Would you be interested in joining the CamLibTM team?
All suggestions, opinions and enquiries welcome!


  1. Just filled in the feedback survey, but to answer the questions above. 1. 2 hours is fine and early evening good for me but starting a bit later. 2. Any day of the week. Weekend?! Weekend?! 3. Could get space here although easier after 5pm as we're packed out these days. We have a wide variety of possible rooms incl a lovely Harvard-style lecture theatre. 4. No as I have enough on my plate and I'd only end up trying to takeover!

  2. Thanks for the feedback and suggestions - I think we'll be planning a trip to check out the Judge in a bit more detail! Yeah, the weekend thing was mentioned in case there are people who'd love to come but can never get away from work to go to them. I'm sure there are a lot out there...
