ACHPER Victoria’s Term 1 professional learning events wrap 

As the end of Term 1 fast-approaches (where has the year gone??), we reflect on what a busy and rewarding time it has been for so many of us so far this year. Our team was delighted to see so many of you back in person at our professional learning (PL) opportunities this term. 

For those able to attend events so far in Term 1, we hope you have enjoyed these opportunities to re-connect with your HPE teaching cohort, and immerse yourself in learning new skills, networking, inspirational new ideas to take back to your students.

The return of in person PL for VCE and primary teachers 

For the first time since 2021 the VCE Conference was held in person at La Trobe Sports Stadium with VCE teachers from across the state learning, leading and asking questions together.

We also held two primary workshops; our Accelerator Program and FMS and Game Sense sessions with an incredible group of teachers who revelled in the chance to be part of a group excited to learn together. Thank you to these groups for being so engaged and taking every opportunity to be curious and ask questions.

Thanks to our annual partners RHSports for joining us at our face-to-face sessions and share their latest equipment for PE teachers with us. It was so fun to road test these new products in person.

Online HPE Staffroom

Our online HPE Staffroom returned in Term 1, with discussions based around ways to make whole school sports events more inclusive and engaging to help improve participation rates.

No matter if you are based in metro Melbourne or regionally, we would love for you to join us at our Term 2 HPE Staffroom coming up on 24 May when we cover the topic, Effective Teaching. We’ll be asking the big questions, ‘What does effective teaching look like?’ ‘What are the tools for effective teaching?’ and ‘What is an effective teacher?’

To share your experiences, thoughts and ideas with the ACHPER Victoria team and other like-minded HPE teachers, sign up now via our website.

What’s coming up in Term 2

Planning workshop

Our first one-day planning workshop on April 20th 2023 is coming up in the school holidays. This session is designed to offer a supportive learning and working environment for Primary and Secondary teachers to further your understanding of curriculum and content and provide ideas on how to develop change to take back to school in time for Term 2!
