Physical Literacy

The Physical Literacy Workshop provides participants with practical guidance, hands on experience, and information about the tools and resources that are available to help them create a positive learning environment. Throughout the workshop, participants are encouraged to discuss, interact, and problem solve while participating in physical activities, reflection exercises, and group tasks. Teachers, coaches, and physical activity leaders will learn how to use the presented information and resources effectively in their physical education classes and practices, helping to foster physical literacy.

The workshops are custom tailored to meet the needs of the group (i.e., sport and recreation, elementary and/or secondary educators, administrators, coaches, etc.) and include a focus on inclusion and strategies for working with diverse groups of children and youth.
