The 2017 International Game Sense Conference (3–5 July 2017, Flinders University, Adelaide) is shaping up to be the most important event for leaders in Physical Education and Sport Coaching using the Game Sense approach in the Asia-Pacific region.
There are breakout sessions to suit everybody – from Physical Education teachers, those researching Game Sense to Professional coaches, volunteer coaches, sport managers and government advisors on sport /education pedagogy and policy. In physical education and coaching of sporting activities, games-based approaches to teaching and coaching focus on the designing of games to facilitate player learning. Through modified games and game-like activities coaches/teachers can couple the learning of both technique and strategies. This conference will challenge and support your work as a teacher or coach enabling you and your players to learn and execute technical and tactical skills in creative and practical ways.
With just over 4 weeks to go it is time to register your attendance and select your sessions.
Registrations are now open. Get in quickly as registrations for sessions are limited.
History of the Game Sense conference series:
The Game Sense Conferences were developed by Prof Richard Light to focus on the Game Sense approach and on the Asia Pacific region. The first three conferences were held in Sydney beginning in 2006 and run as one-day events to promote a relaxed atmosphere conducive to sharing and developing ideas. In 2015 the conference went overseas to Christchurch, New Zealand and was expanded to a two day event with day one focused on oral presentations and day two on practical demonstrations more aimed at local teachers and coaches. This year’s conference is convened by ACHPER South Australia and will continue the tradition of sharing ideas and open debate and discussion in the ongoing development of Game Sense and other GBA.
