Learning and Teaching Remotely

A MESSAGE FROM THE ACHPER QLD BOARD AND STAFF

 

Dear HPE Community,

ACHPER QLD exists to support, educate and connect the HPE community in Queensland.


During these unprecedented times the Board and staff of ACHPER QLD would like to acknowledge the overwhelming changes that people working in the HPE sector are having to deal with on a daily basis in the scramble to continue the education of their students in an online environment. We also feel enormous respect for those teachers still physically working at schools and interacting with students, other teachers and parents.

Our President, Ben Williams, and Vice President, Caroline Brooks, have both written personal messages of support to teachers. Click here for a copy of Ben's letter and here for Caroline's.

We are reaching out to the rest of the ACHPER network in Australia and utilising our connections within the education, health and sport industries to support you through this time.

To allow us to target the type of assistance you need we have put together a quick survey that will only take five minutes of your time. Like everyone else we are having to adapt to a new way of working and want to be sure that our time is spent wisely in supporting the HPE community. The survey can be completed here.

We hope that you can get some quality rest during the holidays so that you can return in Term 2 refreshed and ready for a new way of teaching.

The ACHPER QLD Board and Staff

LEARNINGS FROM DISTANCE EDUCATION: ACHPER QLD Q&A SESSION

ACHPER QLD has been fortunate to engage with our colleagues from three Schools of Distance Education in a Q&A session this week. These experienced educators have shared their thoughts around the online learning environment, maintaining connection with students and overcoming some of the challenges that developing and maintaining remote and online learning can bring to Health and Physical Education discipline. Our panel of experts includes:

Melanie Craig, Head of Department - HPE and Community Engagement from Cairns School of Distance Education. 

Cameron Johnson,  Teacher and Senior School Coordinator, Australian Christian College Moreton which offers on campus and distance education for students.

Glenn Amezdroz, Teacher, Brisbane School of Distance Education.
