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.

While there is considerable literature on the use of Sport Education to teach sports and movement activities, examples of applications of this model to other content areas are slowly emerging. Hastie (2011) reported a parallel curriculum around the teaching of gymnastics and life sciences in one primary school employing Sport Education as the organising framework.

While Walker & Kinchin (2018) and Kinchin & Hastie (2009) investigated how the structural and pedagogical features of Sport Education supported the teaching of the physical education IGCSE curriculum and French language respectively at the secondary level.

In contributing to this emerging area of interest, this session outlines the ways in which non-physical education specialists in one school are introducing the components of Sport Education into Grades 2 and 7. The presentation will demonstrate how the structural and pedagogical features of Sport Education are being applied and modified to support the teaching of maths and humanities.

Gary will report on the experiences of the teachers and some outcomes among the pupils. We invite discussion on the practicalities of employing this instructional model to support other content areas.
