PHASE Asia Pacific is a conference for all educators focussed on physical education, health, athletics, sports, and experiential learning.  The conference allows participants to learn from leading authorities in their respective fields as well as from practitioner presenters, to network with fellow educators, and to access good practice and resources in multiple formats.

PHASE has evolved from the Asia Pacific Physical Education Conference (APPEC) which was a dedicated Physical Education & Wellness event for the Asia Pacific region starting in 2015.

Session 1: Cooperative Learning - Changing Our Teaching One Piece At A Time

Cooperative Learning is an approach to teaching that has moved from the classroom to the gymnasium and it offers our students the chance to learn with and from each other. In focusing on the achievements of the whole group the focus is shifted from individual attainment to group development and away from performance as the only outcome of physical education. This session will introduce this pedagogical approach by using games-making as a vehicle for learning about the five key elements of the model.

Session 2: Sports Education - Enthusiastic, Competent & Literate Sportspeople

Building on the work of Daryl Sidentop this session explores the beginnings of Sport Education and suggests ways in which the model can be used. It is beyond the capacity of any session to demonstrate the whole model. Bu by exploring ‘a typical unit’ is begins to show how the physical education lesson can be tailored to support the development of enthusiastic, competent and literate sportspeople and not just performers.

Session 3: Using The TGFU Approach

Using the concept of “Fantasy Games” this session explores ways in which we can begin to embed tactical creativity and game awareness to young people by looking at the wider aspects of game play. Skills, when taught in isolation, lose the cooperative and competitive elements that lie at their heart. By exploring ‘real life’ scenarios and challenging young people to think divergently we prepare them for the game rather than preparing them to provide a rehearsed response to a new situation.

Session 4: Health-Based Physical Education - Habitual Movers, Motivated Movers, Informed Movers & Critical Movers

Drawing on our work (with Dr. Paul Sammon, Dr. Mark Bowler & Prof. Lorraine Cale) I will present the prototype pedagogical model we have developed. This model places the idea of “valuing the physically active life” at its heart and seeks to develop movers who are habitual (i.e. lead active lives), motivated (i.e. have a positive, challenge-facing attitude), informed (i.e. can explain how and where to engage) and critical (i.e. evaluate and overcome barriers to physical activity).

Session 5: Curriculum Planning Session

This culminating session will show how teachers can plan for a models-based practice approach to their curriculum planning. Drawing on work done and understanding gained in the previous four sessions teachers will explore ways of applying these principles and practices in their own schools.
