Physical literacy is a term educators have likely seen in the B.C. Physical and Health Education Curriculum. But what does it really mean, and how can you incorporate it into your classroom?
On January 21, 2021, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. PT, join us for “Getting Started with Physical Literacy,” a free webinar for educators that will answer those exact questions. Beyond explaining what physical literacy is, this webinar will also help you to gain an understanding of the theory behind the concept, and to learn some practical examples and resources that can help you get started in incorporating physical literacy into your class’s day-to-day activities.
An expert in the physical literacy space, Emeritus Professor from University of Victoria’s School of Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education, Dr. P.J. Naylor will be leading this fun and informative webinar.
“Dr. Naylor is a champion of physical activity and physical literacy, and has a wealth of experience working within B.C. schools. We are excited to have her kick off the School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project webinar series by sharing her vast, local knowledge and experience with B.C. educators,” said Drew Mitchell, School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project lead and Senior Director of Physical Literacy with Sport for Life.
Dr. Naylor brings a very practical approach to the delivery of physical activity and development of physical literacy. Her research incorporates socio-ecological and setting-based approaches to children’s physical activity and physical literacy, focusing on the environments where children live, learn and play — like in school! She is passionate about implementation and scale-up science: how we facilitate the widespread use of effective strategies.
This webinar will be held virtually on the GoToWebinar platform on Thursday, January 21, 2021, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. PT.
A recording will be available on the School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project website following the event for those who are unable to attend.
