Senior Physical Education Twilight Workshop

Thursday 19 September 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Planning the Tactical Awareness Unit in Senior Physical Education


This workshop will build on the concepts and ideas from the Tactical Awareness session from the recent ACHPER Queensland conference, delivered by Dr Brendan Moy and Glenn Amezdroz from QUT. Participants will be guided through the inquiry process of gathering and analysing data to identify a tactical limitation. Attendees will then apply knowledge of motor learning concepts to devise a strategy, aimed at optimising tactical performance. Suggestions of how the strategy might be implemented, evaluated and justified will be discussed. There will be opportunities to share practice and refine planning for the implementation of the unit.

This inquiry process provides authentic learning experiences for students about key concepts in Senior Physical Education (2019) and will form the basis of their project-folio assessment response.
