Health and Physical Education: The five propositions card launch
Fri. 12 May 2017, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm AEST
Greetings Health and Phyiscal Education specialists
The new Australian Curriculum in Health and Physical Education offers something no other curriculum in the world does – it boldy attempts to guide pedagogical action in the form of a set of five interrelated propositions made central to both the reform process as well as the curriculum documents. Called variously the five propositions or five key ideas it is these concepts that underpin a research informed futures orientated HPE curriculum with the needs and interests of young Australian’s at its heart. Across the country at all levels of education practitioners are beginning to engage with ways to focus on educative purposes, take a strengths based approach, develop health literacy, value movement, and take a critical inquiry approach in order to innervate and innovate their programs.
Enter the Health and Physical Education: The five proposition cards.
Designed with frontline time compressed practitioners in mind the Health and Physical Education: The five proposition cards break down each proposition into a sharp, succinct definition informed by contemporary research. Each proposition is supported by a set of strategic questions deliberately crafted to clarify understandings of each proposition and then challenge deeper thinking about how they might play out in schools and classrooms. The questions are informed by the experience of four Monash University academics grappling with meaning yet determined to embed the propositions in their own work.
As a key player in the interpretation and enactment of these propositions you are invited to join us for an interactive workshop and the official launch of the Health and Physical Education: The five proposition cards at the Monash university rooms in Melbourne.
The event is FREE and catered with light refreshments. Attendees also receive a set of cards as a small gesture of collegiality.
Please RSVP to secure your place.
We look forward to launching with you.
Karen, Laura, Justen and Dawn
