This year I am very excited and grateful to be presenting a range of new workshops!  I have worked really hard to try and provide meaningful experiences for participants and to try and be authentic to the work that I do with my students but also to make sure that I am referencing the work of others that has come before me in this process of my development as a PE educator.

I am sharing notes here and would encourage feedback and sharing in the spirit of free resources for anyone interested in learning but not for profit. I am always looking to grow, so your feedback or addition of references or resources to credit others is always welcome.

Extended Workshop: A Game Sense approach to Invasion Games (Touch Rugby example) – Use of Coaching Cards for Observation

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-1990’s 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. Small-sided activities – general Invasion and then building into Touch Rugby specific games and activities.

Traditional T&F units can be taught and experienced as individual student units, and can miss out on the opportunity for social interaction and teamwork using modified (or full) events.   In this workshop, we will explore some team-focused ideas including the Sport Education Model (Siedentop, 1984) and other ways we could develop more student-orientated T&F lessons and units. Participants are invited to participate in some T&F activities (sprint/jump/throw) as part of this session.
