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.

A Game Sense Approach To Striking & Fielding

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Game Sense is a specific model that has come out of Bunker and Thorpe’s Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) that was “developed in Australia during the mid-1990s through collaboration with Rod Thorpe and the Australian Sports Commission” (Thrope, 2006 cited by Pill, 2016).

Students are presented with specific game challenges that they then solve while playing small sided games with modified rules, this approach is quite different to isolated skills-based from practice and big-group gameplay. In this workshop, participants will play different Game Sense striking and fielding games that build in tactical complexity and focus on inquiry through teacher questions and problem-solving in various games.

Games include activities based around Kickball, Cricket, Softball and Danish Longball.
