General Description

Do you look at physical education descriptors and draw a blank on what that means for my students? Are there students that are not being rewarded under your school’s current physical education assessment regime?

This is because technique focused teaching, programming and assessment dominates physical education in most schools. However, solely using this approach means many students do not improve their movement skill or activity levels because they need to find the enjoyment to make games a part of their healthy lifestyles.

This TTA course shows teachers from any sector how learners need to appreciate the joy of game playing that leads to a desire to learn techniques to improve game performance and physical activity participation. The purpose of this workshop is to practice and exemplify student connectedness to PE that promotes cognitive, affective and psychomotor development in students of all ages during physical education lessons.

Audience

Generalist primary schools teachers, Primary school physical education specialists, Secondary physical education teachers, School sport coordinators
