The iAIM Activity Permissive Classrooms course is designed for Primary and Secondary School teachers in state and non-state sectors. The course will tap into participants’ prior knowledge and provide them with evidence, strategies and resources to confidently use physical activity as an effective pedagogical strategy and create a positive and engaging classroom environment.

Participants will learn about the link between neuroscience and physical activity and through active participation will learn how to design active lesson warm-ups, active curriculum concepts, and active brain breaks. Participants will also learn about contemporary approaches to making classrooms more activity permissive through space, equipment and furniture.


Delivered by the Increasing Activity & Intelligent Minds (iAIM) Team including experienced teachers from the Darling Downs South West Region. iAIM is a joint initiative by the Department of Health and Department of Education and Training.


Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate of attendance (2.5hrs) issued by the iAIM Team which will detail alignment with AITSL teacher standards. Certificates will be emailed to attendees within 2 weeks of course completion.
