The 2016 AGM, Conference and Teachmeet took place in the Clarion Hotel, Liffey Valley on Saturday 15th of October. It was a great success with the event being sold out. To accommodate a larger number of attendees, we decided to hold the Teachmeet AFTER the Conference, rather then the night before. This was something that many of you suggested during the survey held on the day and we were happy to be able to make that happen this year. As it was a longer day, we also took on board another suggestion made by many of you, which was to offer a hot lunch on the day.
We were delighted to welcome Tía Tula Language School in Salamanca who gave a presentation focusing on teaching to the A1/A2 language level, Joan Sutton, former Inspector of Spanish, spoke about differentiation in the classroom. There was also a brief discussion of the Leaving Certificate link question. Ailbhíne Ní Bhroin, current Inspector of Spanish, addressed the Association on the day as well. Finally we had a number of teachers presenting at our Teachmeet who provided practical idea for you all that work in the classroom. Check out the agenda here agenda-for-agm-2016
This year we will continue with Individual Teacher Membership and so there will be no group membership for schools. Here is the link to register for Individual Membership
As you are all aware, the AGM & Conference is once again taking place in the Clarion Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin on Saturday 15th of October.
