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.

Building on his work with Mikael Quennerstedt (See Casey & Quennerstedt, 2019), Ash will show how, by returning to the founding philosophy of John Dewey, we can create a physical education curriculum built around the value of experience.

Specifically, he will develop participants understanding of the five elements of cooperative learning (i.e. Positive Interdependence Promotive Face-to-face Interaction Individual Accountability Interpersonal and Small Group Skills Group Processing) and introduce the idea of adding:
  • A situational element which moves from the idea of cooperative children to participants in cooperative events.
  • A directional element which shifts from teaching cooperation to experiencing cooperation as a transactional process.
  • A temporal element in which cooperative learners decide, over time, what it means to cooperate.
  • A communal element which recognises that students’ have different end when participating in cooperative learning activities. 
  • An educative element which holds that learning should be discovered and not predefined through a process of inquiry.
