Assessment in PE: Practices That Motivate, Engage, and Place Students at the Centre of Their Learning Presenter: Josh Ogilvie (High School PHE Teacher and Department Head, Burnaby School District, BC) Workshop Description Assessment can have a tremendous influence on students in their learning and serve to encourage and motivate, or discourage and demotivate them. At the heart of this spectrum lies a student's desire to engage and participate in their learning based on the teaching and assessment practices we implement in our classes. While our PE classes can be diverse and complex, implementing assessment methods that help to motivate and engage students in their learning does not have to be. This presentation will highlight and show how motivational theories and evidence-based assessment practices can be combined in practical ways to provide empowering learning experiences for students. It will also help teachers consider their current assessment practices and how they can support student motivation, engagement, and learning in PE. Resources and examples will be shared and discussed to highlight practical applications.

As a natural experiment evaluation system, COMPASS is building the capacity to integrate research, evaluation, policy, and practice within school-based prevention systems. Each year, COMPASS measures numerous behavioural and outcome measures from students (physical activity, depression, anxiety, tobacco use, e-cigarettes, diet, alcohol use, cannabis use, etc.) and then links those student-level data to measures of programs, policies and built environment resources occurring within the schools, communities, provinces/territory, and even nationally that those students are situated in. Hundreds of different real-world program, policy, and/or built environment changes (interventions) take place in the various contextual environments surrounding students in the cohort that can be evaluated as natural experiments using the quasi-experimental design embedded in the system. COMPASS is striving to learn how to better share those findings with schools to foster more evidence-based programming. Bolstering Recess Environments – What is Loose Parts Play Anyway? Presenters: Adrian Xavier (School Health Facilitator, Ever Active School, AB) Workshop Description Play is freely chosen, self-directed and intrinsically motivated. It can contribute to social development, problem solving, resilience and is interwoven throughout one's physical literacy journey. Loose parts play presents an unstructured, outdoor play experience that is fundamental for the social, emotional, intellectual and physical wellness of children and youth. The theory behind Loose Parts Play suggests that the level of discovery, creativity and inventiveness within an environment is dependant upon the amount and variety of flexible materials within it. Thus, loose parts involves simple, inexpensive, everyday materials that can be moved, carried, stacked, manipulated and/or repurposed for play. During this session, Ever Active Schools will introduce you to loose parts play, featuring the logistics for implementation using a comprehensive school health framework and exploring the role of the adult (including how to perform a risk-benefit assessment for, during and after play). This will be an experience rich with information, resources and opportunity to answer and discuss questions and curiosities about loose parts play. Girls - Inspire, Motivate, Move: A Pilot Project Presenter: Alexandra Inglis (PHE Teacher and After-School Program Coordinator at School District #73, Sessional Instructor at Thompson Rivers University, BC) Workshop Description How do you successfully engage high school girls in movement activities to combat the decline in participation in physical activity during the teenage years? With only 8% of girls meeting the recommendations of the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, this pilot project sought to discover if an after-school program designed for girls by girls could successfully inspire and engage girls in physical activity and reshape their current understanding and views of physical activity. In this session, you will learn about our pilot project to foster connection, build a community of inspirational and committed individuals, boost confidence and competence, and inspire female students to choose movement during the after-school time slot. "Just name it!": Anti-Racism, 2SLGBTQQIA Issues and Culturally Affirming Pedagogies for PHE Presenters: Joannie Halas (Professor, Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, University of Manitoba, MB); Sopear Chhin (Teacher, Maples Collegiate Institute, MB) Workshop Description Teaching about and addressing issues of race/racism, culture, class, gender and sexual diversities can be challenging for educators.

Participants will experience lessons that focus on Fundamental Movement Competencies through active participation and explore assessment tools following each activity. Working Towards Inclusion in Physical Education Presenter: Tom Fahie (Director for Youth Development, Special Olympics Nova Scotia, NS) Workshop Description Teaching in the gymnasium has become increasingly challenging as Physical Education teachers are asked to do more with less support. As the rate of the occurrence of Autism Spectrum Disorder continues on an upward trend (1 in 59 as of 2018) and the prevalence of other intellectual and physical disabilities, the need for education and training for PE teachers with an emphasis on practical methods and strategies will be the focus of this session. Participants will be taken through strategies that will enable them to adapt their methods and help students with additional needs prosper and have fun in a fully integrated setting. Attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of how to meet daily outcomes with confidence. Keys to Keeping Girls Active – Exploring the Value of Social Connection Presenters: Stephanie Talsma (Program Director, Canadian Women & Sport, ON); Terri Temelini (Program Manager, Canadian Women & Sport, ON) Workshop Description The engagement of girls and women as active participants and leaders in the Canadian Sport and Physical Activity system is a priority, but high drop-out rates among girls continue to persist. To interrupt this trend and to ensure girls continue to engage across their lifespan, research confirms the importance of fostering social connection in order to retain girls in sport, physical activity and physical education programs. Grounded in the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion this session offers actionable strategies to successfully build and maintain social connection. Through group discussion, delegates will have an opportunity to further explore the issues and promising practices for application to their own contexts. Teachers and coaches have a vital role to play in building safe and inclusive sport for girls, helping them to develop positive attitudes and behaviours that will support their active participation across the lifespan – leading to better sport and physical activity for everyone.

Physically Active Lessons: The Nova Scotia Active Smarter Kids Pilot Project Presenter: Britt Vegsund (Project Lead, Nova Scotia Active Smarter Kids Pilot, NS) Workshop Description Physically active lessons (PALs) integrate movement into the existing curriculum, in key learning areas other than physical education. PALs have been demonstrated to effectively increase students’ physical activity, while also positively affecting students’ time on task, academic achievement, and overall mood and sense of enjoyment of school. Building on the successful implementation of PALs in Western Norway, the Nova Scotia Active Smarter Kids Pilot (NS ASK Pilot) is trialing PALs as an effective way to increase students’ daily physical activity, while also increasing their engagement in learning, sense of belonging, and enjoyment of school. Working directly with classroom teachers, the goal of the pilot is to incorporate 90 minutes per week of physically active learning into instructional time for students in grades 4-6. NS ASK lessons take place primarily outdoors and run throughout the school year. In this hands-on workshop, we will share some learnings from the NS ASK Pilot and discuss what it takes to get PALs up and going within a school. Most importantly, we will explore the benefits of PALs by doing several different lessons designed and delivered by teachers from the NS ASK Pilot.

Utilizing Yoga for Workplace Well-being for Students & Staff Presenter: Erika Killam (Owner, 3eYoga, PEI) Workshop Description Yoga is beneficial and accessible to everyone. This session will show how to incorporate a yoga practice into the classroom or in the office. The benefits for both students and staff include but are certainly not limited to: improved focus and concentration, self-esteem, mood, helps with self-regulation, resilience, emotional balance, reactivity, and reinforces positive thought patterns and pro-social behaviour. 30-minute sessions can be integrated into homeroom or study halls as a required element to students and staff daily routine. We will examine the benefits of bringing these techniques into the classroom and experience a full yoga session.
