Webinar: The Scottish context: physical education within the Health and Wellbeing curriculum.
Thursday 4th February 2021, 4pm-5:30pm
You are invited to attend a unique professional learning event that crosses the national boundary between Scotland and Wales. In 2010, a new curriculum was introduced in Scotland, the Curriculum for Excellence, offering new opportunities for PE with a Health and Wellbeing curriculum. Currently, Wales are undergoing the same process with the introduction of the Curriculum for Wales, which also invites PE to make a contribution to the Health and Wellbeing Area of Learning and Experience. In this short series of two webinars, academics and teachers from Scotland and Wales will share their experiences and learning during the processes of curriculum development and (planning for) enactment.
This invitation is to attend the first of the two webinars: The Scottish context: physical education within the Health and Wellbeing curriculum.
- Dr. Andrew Horrell (University of Edinburgh) will introduce the Curriculum for Excellence and examine some of the possibilities it offered PE in Scotland.
- PE teachers Stuart Robertson and Louise Arnold will share their experiences and learning of curriculum enactment over the last 10 years, highlighting both the opportunities and challenges that accompany curriculum reform.
Audience members will have opportunities to ask questions and engage in discussions with practitioners from both contexts to share knowledge, experiences and consider what each curriculum might mean for PE in the future.
