Event description

Description

UNESCO and DCMS recently stressed that substantial action is required in schools to address physical inactivity. Health promotion would see schools focussing on physical, cognitive, social and affective domains of learning. Curricula would also be designed in a way that is relevant to students health-related needs.

Teachers who have the greatest impact on student learning are positioned as activators of learning. Teachers who are activators of learning engage in an on-going process of diagnosing, responding and evaluating their students learning needs to ensure they act and interact with students in optimal ways.

Workshop

This workshop is based on latest evidence from research funded by the British Academy and led by Dr Victoria Goodyear and Dr Dean Dudley. The workshop is free and relevant to primary and secondary teachers who are both specialist and non-specialist physical education teachers. The workshop is also relevant to trainee, newly qualified or experienced teachers.

During the workshop you will be provided with a new assessment framework for health-related learning and new guidelines for optimal teacher behaviours. You will be able to learn of teachers experiences of applying the framework and guidelines from, viewing GoPro footage and by their sharing of experiences at the workshop.

Outcomes

  • New understandings of how to effectively promote health-related learning in physical education

  • Enhanced capabilities to assess learning in physical, cognitive, social and affective domains

  • Increased awareness of optimal teaching behaviours that promote health-related learning that you can readily apply in your practice

There are 20 free spaces for this course and financial support is provided for travel on request. For travel support information please contact Hannah Wood (0121 414 2873; h.e.wood@bham.ac.uk)
