Should We Be Worried about the #EinPE?

In this talk, Susie will discuss the pandemic trend of fitness as physical education in online learning environments, and the passive consumption of the celebrity ‘educator’. She will talk about the reduction of quality physical education to fitness, and why that poses a risk to the students learning, and the profession. Not wanting to discredit the altruistic nature of many of these Social stars or online offers; Susie will focus on how we can advocate for the profession, and make these experiences more meaningful by focusing on the teaching and learning. She will conclude by explaining how this pandemic trend led to the initiative and hashtag #EinPE, and inspired hundreds of physical educators from around New Zealand to start making some noise about what they actually do for a job.
