Opportunities for professional development in the areas of physical and health education and healthy school communities is critical to the advancement of our profession and our proficiency and effectiveness in providing quality learning experiences and healthy, inclusive environments for all our students. 

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has put a pause on in-person professional development opportunities, from national conferences to provincial and regional PD events across the country. However, it doesn’t have to put a pause on professional development. 

PHE Canada would like to invite to you join us for the PHE Spotlight Series – a series of free, virtual professional development workshops to support and advance quality physical and health education – both now, under the current at-home learning environment, and when we return to school.
