Please join us in Adelaide at the 29th ACHPER International Conference, 13 - 15 April 2015. Take this opportunity to meet and network with a variety of Health, Physical Education and Recreation professionals from across Australia and internationally.
The 29th ACHPER International Conference: Values into Action – A Brighter Future occurs in an exciting time for Health and Physical Education (HPE) in Australia. With the Australian Curriculum: HPE implementation processes for Foundation to Year 10 planned for 2015, the timing of this conference synchronises and supports how schools will deliver this curriculum.
This conference presents an opportunity to stimulate future focused thinking about pedagogy and learning in, through and about movement in physical education, sport, recreation, and personal, social and community health. It will also help you develop a greater understanding of how moving enhances learning and holistic student health and wellbeing outcomes, and offer creative ways to develop a more engaging ‘active curriculum’ for delivery in the classroom, in schools and in the community.
The keynote speakers have been chosen for their awareness of current developments in HPE pedagogy and learning, physical activity provision and health concepts in Australia and internationally. The dynamic and innovative program will bring to life the conference theme with a good mix of theory and practical applications for your professional practice.
A call for papers will shortly be distributed. If you are interested in presenting at this dynamic Conference please contact the ACHPER (SA) office on the details below.
The Conference will feature many networking and social activities. Adelaide offers all the benefits of a large international metropolis without the problems of a big city. Food and wine are a large part of Adelaide culture. Adelaide is the wine capital of Australia with wine regions located within an hours drive of the city. Some popular tourist destinations renowned for their food, wine and picturesque qualities include the Adelaide Hills, the Barossa, Kangaroo Island and Flinders Ranges.
The Conference will feature a successful format including a mix of practical and theory. We invite you to participate in what will be a premier HPE professional learning event in the Southern Hemisphere.
