Do you think your students are not getting as many marks as they should? Looking for tips to help students structure their answers in HHD? This is a great starting point for teachers who want to provide practical ways for students to modify their writing habits and give them the best chance to demonstrate excellence in short answer and extended response questions. VCAA statistics and examination reports will be examined to target weak areas that will maximise growth.

VCE PE Unit 2 Area of Study 2: Contemporary issues associated with physical activity and sport is an area of the course that has proven challenging for teachers to implement in a meaningful way. This session aims to unpack what is expected from teachers, but most importantly provides the opportunity to explore what are possible contemporary issues that could be studied and how students can explore these issues through participation in physical activity.

Many games units taught in schools position the teacher as the expert. Creative PE flips the classroom so that the students take on that role, yet teachers are still able to achieve outcomes concerning skills, strategies, sport and social responsibility. This session will guide secondary school teachers through this pedagogical model that has proven engaging in schools for students up to year 10.

This workshop will provide you with an overview of the new web resource 'Kids Co-designing Healthy Places'. The resource was developed by researchers at Monash University supported by VicHealth. The website supports councils and schools to engage with kids to co-design healthier places. It focuses on the things in our neighbourhoods that impact healthy eating and being active. Kids live, learn and play in the places councils look after. By including them in the design process we can build healthier futures together. The workshop will cover curriculum links, the use of co-design and student voice as a pedagogical approach and an exploration of the major audit tools developed for the resource.

School based assessment in VCE PE, HHD and OES Units 3 and 4 is intended to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills through a variety of assessment tasks. Based on the VCE Assessment Principle, VCE assessment should be balanced, therefore school based assessment must provide a range of opportunities for students to demonstrate in different contexts and task types and conditions, the knowledge, skills, and understanding and capacities set out in the curriculum. This session will explore the structure and development of task types other than structured questions and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and start scaffolding tasks for you to use with your students.

Let’s face it, curriculum planning can be a complex, time consuming process, and some of us just want to jump straight into the unit planning! Effective curriculum planning should take into account some overarching considerations before you get into the detail to maximise student achievement. If you want clear guidance on how to structure the PE curriculum within your school’s context, then this is the session for you. We will look at the BIG PICUTRE and get started today in developing a meaningful program for your students. You will learn from the redesign of a curriculum that took shape in 12 months, was further restructured, to cater for remote learning and is now working successfully throughout 2021. It’s easier than you think!

More girls drop-out of sport during adolescence than boys, and many of them fail to return. One of the reasons why girls drop-out of sport is they do not feel comfortable, confident, or ready to play sport in the sport uniforms that they are required to wear. We asked over 700 girls what they thought about school sport uniforms. Find out what they said, and how some sports are listening.

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.

This practical session will demonstrate how the Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility through Physical Activity (TPSR) model can be incorporated into your PE classes and coaching. Developed by Don Hellison it has proven effective in school–based physical education. TPSR in Physical Education is consistent with aspects of the VC:HPE Achievement Standards and many of the key ideas of HPE. Educators consistently report that once TPSR has been taught that their classes ran more smoothly and there was less need for class management as the students increasingly self–managed.
