Many PE programs utilise invasion games as a major part of their program. Each of these sports have common tactical concepts which can be taught in a variety of forms. These can provide a deeper level of learning for your students and can be applied across a range of activities. Get ready to practically explore game sense methodology through small sided games which provide the basis for the teaching of these concepts.

This session is designed to unpack the recent VCAA HIIT support material update. Students are increasingly exposed to many variations of 'HIIT' training which can complicate the teaching and learning of this training method. This session aims to simplify the translation of knowledge by focusing on what students really need to do, say and write. Ideas will be included on how you can effectively and efficiently deliver this key knowledge to students through practical activity.

For a while now HPE has been somewhat fixated on the 4-Game classification frame as a basis for models- and games-based approaches (invasion; net/wall; striking/fielding; target games). Consequently, teachers can find themselves teaching competitive tactics in net-wall games to learners who may not be that interested and likely won't use them outside of PE. The way people participate in sport globally has been changing for some time, COVID has accelerated that change and HPE needs to catch up. This presentation unpacks participation trends and argues for an expansion of sport classification that opens HPE up to more meaningful learning opportunities.

This session provides an opportunity for VCE Health and Human Development educators to be involved in a small focus group. In 2021 a monitoring survey was conducted by the VCAA where all schools and teachers had the chance to provide feedback on the direction of the course. In 2022 applications were sought to become a member of an Expert Review Group to unpack this data and provide direction for the upcoming review in 2023. This session will give teachers the chance to discuss the initial topics of interest brought up within the ERG.

Target games can be a tricky theme to address as without the same variety of sports to draw from as we might see in other themes, we can quickly exhaust our repertoire. This practical workshop will take you through a variety of fast paced target games steered towards fostering game understanding through 'targeted' questioning, team collaboration and maximum engagement.

When examining various models of practice in Physical Education teachers are often left with the impression that they need to adhere to a model so that its fidelity is maintained. For the    practitioner, however, they are often seeking a more pragmatic approach that will engage learners and enhance student achievement. This session will provide a brief overview of these models and then provide time for attendees to discuss how these models can be best blended to enhance student learning. This session will be especially useful for those wanting to renew their PE planning and the way in which they structure units of work and lessons.

A Game Sense approach in physical education places the game at the heart of the session. It encourages the player to develop skills in a realistic context, to become more tactically aware, to make better decisions and to have more fun. Applying the Game Sense approach, this practical workshop will identify generic tactical problems and solutions within net/wall sports through focusing on a variety of tennis games and play practices. These games will form the foundation for enhanced game understanding and performance in other sports in the net/wall category and broaden your teaching repertoire of net/wall games.

Not only is FMS proficiency an important antecedent to sport-specific movement skills, but to lifelong physical activity engagement.  Whilst practising ‘specialised movement skills’ is the outcome at Levels 5 and 6 of VC:HPE, have students missed this acquisition due to the pandemic? In this session, we explore practical ideas to help bridge this gap and support students FMS competency at Levels 7+.

A thematic approach for Physical Education enables the teaching and learning of game concepts and strategies that are transferrable between sports. This approach has piqued the interest of many Health and Physical Education teachers through their engagement with the Victorian Curriculum F–10: HPE and in particular the Achievement Standard for Years 9 and 10 that     requires students to demonstrate how they can, apply and transfer movement concepts and strategies to new and challenging movement situations.” Similarly, the Content Descriptors require teachers to plan for student learning where they “Transfer understanding from previous movement experiences to create solutions to movement challenges.” The Australian game-based approach of Game Sense has the capacity to provide an ideal instructional practice for teachers to facilitate a thematic curriculum and the transfer of movement concepts and strategies, using the organisational feature of the four game categories: invasion; net, court and wall; striking and fielding; target. This workshop will introduce the principles of play including movement concepts and strategies across the four game categories.

Currently outdoor education does not exist as a learning area within the Victorian Curriculum F-10. This is despite many years of advocacy from academics, teachers and peak bodies alike. The “Outdoor Education in the Victoria Curriculum Project” is a joint initiative of Outdoors Victoria, ACHPER, the ROSA network and Victorian universities. This group have developed a draft curriculum document that is proposed to sit as an option in years 7-10 (distinct from PE and Health), within the current Health and Physical Education Learning. In this interactive panel discussion, members of the working group will share key aspects of the project and present the current curriculum draft to seek your feedback, with the aim of continuing to improve this curriculum draft.
