Summer & Winter Institutes

Summer and Winter Institutes are short, intensive courses that allow educators and pre-service teachers the opportunity for professional development outside of the school calendar year.

Winter Institute 2022

This Winter Institute will introduce teachers to Elementary Physical and Health Education (PHE) curriculum, content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge, practical experiences, and professional responsibilities of a successful elementary school teacher. The course will expand teachers’ level of confidence and competence when delivering the British Columbia (BC) PHE Curriculum.

In this course, learners will work through modules on the BC PHE K-7 curriculum, the Indigenous holistic approaches to teaching and learning, creating equity, diversity and inclusion in PHE, quality physical education, assessment, physical literacy and the comprehensive school health model. Learners will work on their own and with others while being guided by leaders from BC school districts, Indigenous Sport Physical Activity and Recreation Council and several BC Universities.

*This course is available for credit.

PREVIOUS INSTITUTES

The Summer Institute 2020 introduced teachers to the Elementary Physical and Health Education (PHE) curriculum, content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge, practical experiences, and professional responsibilities of a successful elementary school teacher.

The course expanded elementary teachers’ level of confidence and competence when delivering the B.C. Physical Health and Education (PHE) Curriculum. During the one-week course, learners worked through modules on the B.C. PHE K-7 curriculum, the Indigenous holistic approaches to teaching and learning, creating equity, diversity and inclusion in PHE, quality physical education, assessment, physical literacy and the comprehensive school health model.

The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is a prototype, and all participants have the opportunity to provide feedback.
