Our Reimagining Physical Education workshop series will support teachers and faculties to:

  • Review current practices
  • Explore innovative ways of presenting learning
  • Reinvigorate programs and increase engagement for all students.

Co-designed by practicing PDHPE teachers and experts in physical education pedagogy, the workshops are evidence-based and informed by real-school experience.

There will be two workshops in the Reimagining Physical Education series:

  • Workshop 1 (this session) – Innovating in PE
  • Workshop 2 – The power of questioning and observation in delivering and assessing quality PE programs. Available in mid-2022.

  • exploring the propositions and how they can inform our PE programs
