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.

One of the benefits of a skills-based model is that it gives teachers freedom to adapt content to best suit the unique needs of their student population. This is especially important in an international setting where cultures, values, and laws can vary drastically between countries and schools. In this follow-up to last year’s session, participants will be given tools to add current health concerns- vaping, screen time, body image and social media, etc.- to existing curriculum while maintaining a focus on skills.

Participants will leave with:
  • Tools to gather data on the health concerns impacting their unique student population
  • A bank of adaptable resources to help address current health issues
  • A network of other international teachers passionate about student wellness in the region.
