Introduction to the program
As a result of completing this online course, participants will have:
- undertaken a comprehensive environmental scan to gather localised data to inform the revision of their school’s PDHPE program
- developed a greater understanding of some of the latest evidence that informs the PDHPE learning area
- used localised data to identify challenges, behaviours, decisions and actions for students in their local context that will need to be addressed through their revised PDHPE program.
PDHPE Collective Facebook Group
The PDHPE Collective has been set up to facilitate the online discussions and reflections that you will be participating in during the course. Before you get started jump across the PDHPE Collective Facebook Group and join now so you can post your reflections and discussions to the page.
Within this group we will facilitate regular discussion forums that explore key topics within the PDHPE field as well as running a monthly professional reading circle where research articles, key reports, resources or policies will be shared and discussed. The intention is the PDHPE Collective will become the key Professional Leaning Community of Practice for teachers of PDHPE.
In order to be accredited for the 5 hours professional learning with NESA, participants must complete all offline tasks and provide their NESA accreditation details on the Course evaluation survey.
