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.

This workshop seeks to explore and enhance the implementation of inquiry based pedagogies within the context of school-based HPE. Contemporary Australian HPE programs advocate the use of student-centred approaches to teaching and learning, approaches that encourage teachers to:
  • Incorporate the knowledge, skills, values and beliefs that each student brings to their HPE programs.
  • Design learning experiences and assessment that are authentic, that is all teaching and learning should articulate with students’ short and long term aspirations, contexts and needs
  • Construct units of work that incite students to utilise inquiry and problem based strategies to real life issues or activities
  • Establish high expectations of students’ capacity to engage with and apply new knowledge, skills and strategies.
In this session, participants will work in teams to construct a dance routine (Madonna’s Vogue) to gain insight into the application of the key characteristics of student-centred teaching to HPE programs. In particular, these learning approaches provide teachers with a vehicle through which students can analyse the impact of social forces such as class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality on their own and other’s participation in games, sports and physical activities.
